Eats with sinners


EATS WITH SINNERS

Loving Like Jesus

By Arron Chambers

(In this review, I use “the lost” to signify sinners that are lost, since we are all sinners.)

The author goes into detail about reaching out to the lost with the Gospel and offers methods of reaching out. Using the examples from scripture on how Jesus reached the lost and how we were instructed to do the same. He covers character traits of integrity, accessibility, grace, faith, intimacy, tolerance, resolve, urgency, mercy, humility, investment, joy and vision. The methods described in this book have been proven at the authors church and other churches with good results. Some questions asked are why spending time with the lost is important, do you avoid the lost, is there a degree of sin and others. He shares many stories and examples of how the lost have been reached by others. Each chapter closes with some questions to think about and can be by discussion groups.

The book is well written and easy to understand and can be a blessing to everyone. We are asked by Jesus to reach out to the lost and we are to share the Gospel with all. We can do this by being a friend to that person and by the way we live.

A quote from the introduction:

“Being lost is never fun. Being lost and realizing that no one is looking for you is even worse.”

Remember we were all lost at one time, we are still sinners, but by the grace of God we are forgiven and saved.

Looking for a way to get kids to study the Bible, this Bible might be the answer. Published for kids from about the age of 8 through their teens, this study Bible is a great way to introduce them to God’s Word. An easy to read and understand translation, the NIV is just right. The added study notes and notes about important verses are on each page are in a different colored background then the text, making them each to read and separate from the text. The introduction to each book includes; why the book was written, what to learn about God, where it happened, and the stories included in that book. There are over 700 charts, maps, photos and pictures to add interest to a Bible study. In the back of the Bible is an index for the graphics and maps plus a weight and measure chart to help with the Biblical measures.

All this information is done in a beautiful, colorful and easy to read format. When you add the NIV translation to this it makes for an easy to understand study for kids. (Adults will enjoy it too, after all we are kids at heart.)

What happens after you die?


WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU DIE

A Biblical Guide To Paradise, Hell, and Life After Death

By Randy Frazee

What happens after you die is a question most everyone has asked. There are many answers, or what may appear to be answers, in the world. Randy Frazee has written a book that answers that question with a easy to understand reasoning.  The book in written from a Biblical viewpoint and in my opinion the right viewpoint. Randy tells of his struggle with the death of his mother because of cancer. On the way to the hospital for treatment his mother asked him if Jesus was enough. Randy searches God’s word for answers and shares his findings in this well written book. He covers subjects of what happen if I die without Christ, what happens if I die with Christ and other questions concerning heaven and hell. Each chapter offers questions and answers for discussion, making this book easy to use as a Bible study or for Sunday school lessons.

The book is very informative and well worth the time to read and I think the book has a lot to offer everyone, believer or non-believer. The book is easy to read and understand makes for great reading.  There is no question that it answers the question, What happens after you die.

Misused Stories

THE MOST MISUSED STORIES IN THE BIBLE
Surprising Ways Popular Bible Stories Are Misunderstood
By Eric J. Bargerhuff
The author take 14 stories from the Bible and shows how sometimes these stories are misinterpreted, he give an interpretation that he feels is the right one. His version is a common-sense interpretation not one that is being used to get a view point across. Eric feels that God has a meaning for the story and offers, what he thinks is the meaning is. He covers stories of David and Goliath, Zacchaeus among others. Areas that the author touch upon are, the context of the story, understanding the meaning, not to read modern day biases into the story, reading into the stories at is not there and other things that cause misunderstanding.
I want to share a quote from the back of the book; “Filled with fascinating historical and spiritual insights, this concise yet thorough book will help you learn how to read and apply all of God’s Word more faithfully.”
I like and think we need books like this to help protect us from some of the false teachers and their confusing methods.
