The Berean and the Goldfish: ... the Rest of the Story (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 12 abr 2012
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
This is a collection of ideas for the people who seek to know and enjoy more of God's Word. As referenced in the Book of Acts Chapter 17, Verse 11: "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." This enormous compliment and honor is paid to the Bereans - and I use this reference to associate with all those people who place the Word of God above tradition, above rumor, above fiction, above social acceptance, above entertainment, above religious propaganda, above political correctness, and above cultural differences. 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth. Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy studying God's word, and find deeper meaning through their diligence in seeking truth.
The author does make clear that some of the current denominational views are simply false, however he does not "pick on" any denomination, but warns against apostate and false teachers. Some of his views will cause a true "Berean" to question some of the things their denomination teaches, but NEVER attacks or disputes the fundamental beliefs of mainline churches.
I believe the reader will benefit from reading this book, and will find that some of the questions they have will be answered. There is also the benefit of being set free from false teachings which are discussed and exposed by Scriptural references. Also, there will be those who disagree with some of the content, but whose faith will still be edified through many of the Scriptures they will find in this book.
I believe the readers will enjoy the book and find a deeper appreciation of our God and His work in their lives.
In this same spirit, keeping also in mind that God’s Word is the source of truth, the author has written a book so that reader may have enough knowledge of Scripture to search the matter out, discovering truth for themselves. This author has written an extensive book with 388 pages clarifying such subjects as: life with and without the Gospel, evidence of the resurrection, faith versus works, a church audit, the role of the law, the Trinity, the Lamb of God, seven letters to seven churches, our national heritage, national sins and consequence, the soul and being born-again, life and death, and the doctrine of “sleep”. In addition, this work covers prophecies about Jesus – fulfilled, the names of God, U.S. cities with Bible names, God’s instruction manual for people, roots, and understanding “Israel”.
All of these teachings are rich in Scripture and built with solid scriptural application. One can learn a great deal from this book that came from careful biblical studies that began over 30 years ago. In writing this book the author hopes eyes will be opened, hearts will be softened to the truth of God’s Word, giving light for the day that we live in, if even we are still as goldfish in a goldfish bowl – only understanding what we are capable of understanding on this Earth – thus the explanation for the title.
This is a great read for those who desire truth in the inner man and a deeper understanding of the Word, Jesus, the hope of our salvation and God Himself. Refreshing, encouraging and filled with Scripture, reading this book leads to the discovery that the only important and relevant pursuit is the pursuit of God, godliness and understanding from the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. Highly recommended!
