BIBLE MATERIAL OUT NOW

Hebrews

 And Now for Something Completely Different is a verse by verse study of one of the Bible’s most important books: Hebrews. It is often neglected and under-studied, yet its message is critical to understand. Christ is superior, His Priesthood is greater, His sacrifice more powerful and His Temple more holy. If you have ever struggled with understanding the bridge between the Old Testament and the New, this book is for you. If you want to gain a deeper appreciation for the sacrifice of Christ, and understand just how important and nessecary an event it was, this book is for you. If you want to study every verse of Hebrews but have been put off by some commentaries that are too technical: This book is for you! It will be out on Valentines Day, 2014.

 DESPISED is a study of the effects bullying has on adolescents.  Within this book are words of advice, both for the one being abused and for those seeking to help. Unfortunately, there are no words within the pages that can make the pain go away, or make the hate-filled bully stop his rampage. What this book does seek to offer is hope.

 Within this book are nine pieces of advice, designed to draw the reader closer to God and away from whatever painful thoughts the bully has helped to creep into the mind. There are words of advice to those bullied for being gay, poor or even just socially awkward.  There are reflections of the Christ who was also despised and rejected of His peers. There is a list of things to say (and not say) that might help walk someone back from the ledge.

paradise

 

From Paradise to Paradise is an 8-part handbook that examines the how and why and the particulars of God’s plan to save man.

 The book begins by establishing the existence of God and the proof that Jesus is Christ. From there it considers the five-part nature of God that motivates His actions. The scheme of redemption is then seen through the prism of the Old Testament and the prophesies that speak to the coming-Messiah. Next is a look at “the church” as it is described in O.T. prophesy and N.T. reality. After that comes a study of salvation as Jesus defines it followed by the way many people react to it. The book concludes with a look at the history of God’s people from the 2nd to the 21st centuries, and a series of frequently asked questions.

 Paradise with God was lost because of man’s sin; Paradise with God is regained in Christ. How that came to fruition involved thousands of years of Divine planning. Let this book be a companion as you study the Bible and see that plan unfolding!
