About the book:
An enjoyable source of inspiration and personal study, and for leaders, solid material for teaching and preaching, and will help Christians be an effective part of the coming revival of the Church and a new reformation to bring true Biblical Christianity to the nations. The 24 vital documents in this book which provide the sure foundation for restoring the Church to God s Word and God s favor to the Church are the culmination of 37 years of the work of hundreds of Christian theologians and pastoral and lay leaders from a broad variety of denominations, who met to restore the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3) and hashed out creedal statements of Biblical Truth on 24 controversial topics, beginning with the Eternal and Inerrant Word of God. Authors invite input and debate from readers who think they see a more Biblical interpretation. The goal is to discern from the very Word of God truth versus error and encourage the Body-of-Christ-global to unify in spirit around a Biblical-theological standard of doctrine consistent with the first 20 centuries to spearhead a new reformation and global revival. Said Dr. Jay, There can be no new reformation and revival unless many pastors preach strongly for Christians to obey the Bible from the heart 24/7. This book is not only a call to action, but also provides effective tools and truths with which to advance, Lord willing, the Kingdom of God on earth, as in heaven. May the Church in America and around the world move forward courageously and valiantly to rebuild civilization on the Bible and thus bring blessing to the nations. The author s prayer for the reader is: May our wonderful God bless, guide, and mobilize all who read this book to love Him more passionately and to live more wholeheartedly in obedience to His inerrant written Word, the Bible. Amen!
My take on this book:
The title alone grabbed my attention, but it was the articles and ideas that I found inside that really allowed me to not only think about what I actually believe, but also opened my eyes to the many false teachings that can lead one astray. One of the first things I did when picking up this book is skim the table of contents and honestly instead of reading this book from cover to cover I found myself jumping from various topics that jumped out at me, ones that I myself have grappled with because I didn't always see eye to eye the way that mainstream Christianity seems to have moved. Some of those topics happen to be marriage,divorce, and remarriage, homosexuality, and the sanctity of human life. These are just a few of the twenty four issues that are focused on in depth, issues that indicate that today's Church is being disobedient to what the Bible actually says.One of the most useful tools included are the questions found in the appendixes which helps one figure out whether they are becoming more liberal in their Bible beliefs. Overall this is a book that will open the readers eyes to the falsehoods that are being taught today, but also provides sound scriptural ideas on how to find our way back to the God of the Bible.
