A Handbook for New Christian Believers

Including: The Glossary of Christianese
  • By James Alwyn Austin
$11.95
Every group is a medley of unique individuals that share a common interest. As the group forms, meets, practices, and develops their identity and skills, certain words (like nicknames) are made up, that allow for the common identification of certain things that are important to the group. As a result, a group-specific jargon is developed.

In, for example, a surfing group, learning "Surferese" becomes part of the initiation process. Mastering the group-specific jargon provides the newer member a feeling of accomplishment and pride. When outsiders overhear you, they may now be able to identify you as "one of those Surfers." Being identified provides you with confirmation that your efforts have not been in vain.


But Christianity is not a hobby or a club. Your eternal destiny is changed for the better by joining and continuing. For this reason, at this critical juncture, no new believer in Christ should be driven away or alienated by some human-made jargon. So, in A Handbook for New Christian Believers: Including the Glossary of Christianese, the new believer is supplied with a listing of most of the jargon words and their detailed definitions.


This may be the first time such a listing with definitions has been provided, so please take advantage and familiarize yourself with this handbook and the glossary. You will acquire the knowledge you need to quickly enable and ease the process of (1) getting to know your God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and (2) fitting in with the members of your church
