A Brief History of God
What is it that singles out Christianity from all the other faiths around us? All Christians believe that the death of Jesus was to pay for the wrongs of humanity - but how did he do it? Why did it have to be him and not you or me, or Joe or Jane from down the road?
A Brief History of God takes you on a compelling whistle-stop tour, step by step, looking at God's long term plan for humanity, and how He manages to give us all a second chance. Starting by questioning the reliability of the Bible scriptures and a simple logic for the existence of God, we discover the great risk He took in giving humanity truly God-like qualities and how our relationship with Him became changed forever. The exact nature of sin and how it affects humanity is explored and clears up some issues surrounding how children and babies are influenced and those who are mentally impaired or have never had the opportunity to hear of Jesus. Discover why God created the Jewish nation. If God's message brings good news is there any bad news, and how does this 'news' affect us?
A Brief History of God demystifies some of the often asked questions about the Christian faith, step-by-step in a logical fashion, all carefully based on Biblical text, demonstrating that Christian faith does not rest on a blind acceptance of Christ’s work on the cross and His resurrection. If you have questions about faith in God this is a good place to start, but it also provides a very good grounding for both younger Christians, as well as providing clarity for seasoned Christians too.
