Product Description
Learning and understanding what the Bible teaches is a daunting task, especially for those new to the faith or those who have not taken the necessary time to study. Furthermore, the typical theology book is thick and overloaded with unfamiliar words and concepts. As a book written by a layman for laymen and laywomen, Doctrine 101 will... - Explain the truths of the Bible in simple terms so you can actually understand them - Give you real-life examples of how God's word applies specifically to daily life - Equip you to identify false teachings so you are not living a life based on error - Provide you a ready resource for key scriptures that support a biblical understanding of Christianity Written in a conversational format, Doctrine 101 will help you understand and apply the essentials truths of the Bible in a simple and understandable way. It shows how those truths correctly answer life's questions, and it demonstrates how, once understood and embraced, those truths completely transform your life. Your thinking, behavior, focus, relationships, and priorities will all become more Christlike. You will be no longer conformed to this world but transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Growing up in a family divided by religious beliefs, Bill did not receive a clear understanding of the Gospel. He attended Christian schools, colleges, and universities where He learned about the Bible. He served as a ministry leader, associate pastor, and director of regional Christian youth programs. After three years in the U.S.N., Bill's pursuit of finding fulfillment in life was mostly devoid of Christ. He looked to business where he operated a Caribbean tour company, a South America expedition business, a restaurant chain, a water sports training academy, and a general contracting firm. He also looked to scuba diving, flying, physical training, competitive dancing, sailing, fly-fishing, and travel for fulfilment. However, the results of all these activities were stacks of photos, two failed marriages, decreased personal fulfillment, and no personal relationship with Jesus Christ. But God, in His faithfulness and sovereign mercy, called Bill to genuine salvation and then blessed him with a Christian wife. For years, Gail prayed that God would bring godly influences into Bill's life, and God answered her prayers with men whose lives displayed the transforming truths of Scripture. God used these men to take Bill's appreciation of biblical truth from knowledge to passionate love and obedience. As Bill grew in Christ, he became increasingly concerned that others were struggling as he once had-they claimed to be Christians, believed the Bible, but seldom went to the Bible for answers. He started to pray that the Lord would show him how God could use his testimony and personal transformation to reach others. He wanted them to experience the Bible's life-transforming power as he had. You now hold an answer to that prayer in your hands. Bill and Gail live in Southern California, where they enjoy serving their local church body, golfing, and traveling.
