Something to Think About: Things Not Taught in School
Acts 17:11 tells us that the Christians in the church at Berea willingly received the Word of God and daily searched the scriptures in order to determine the accuracy of the things taught to them. Similarly, Something to Think About: Things Not Taught in School looks to the scriptures in order to determine the accuracy of the teachings presently presented to our generation.
This book is a series of Bible studies that look into the foundation of the Christian faith. Based on scriptural references, it looks at not only what Christians believe but why they believe as they do. Each study is written for a new believer, but the subject matter is of great value also to an older believer who is looking into the elements of his or her faith.
Most of the studies presented begin as a word study on one of the basic building blocks of our Christian faith. A quick look into the book reveals that the author relies heavily on the scriptures to make a point. This methodology is used for two reasons: (1) the author believes that the truth resides not in his words but in God's word, and (2) he firmly believes that the word of God can and does explain itself when properly presented with other supportive scriptures.
This book will cause you to reflect on the things that you have been taught. In fact, many of the teachings presented in the book came from questions asked by fellow believers during Bible studies conducted by the author. The intent of this work is not to question your faith but to establish and ground your faith in the scriptural proofs found in the Bible.
