In today’s world, many adopt their own brand of spirituality to make God out to be anything they want. Others consider God to be an impersonal force. By This Name utilizes a seldom-used but solidly biblical method to set apart the God of the Bible from other forms of spirituality, all the while answering two questions: “Who is Jesus?” and “What are the cross and tomb all about?” It establishes the authority of Scripture and gently compares the biblical worldview with other worldviews in an objective, non-arm-twisting way.
“The ideal book to help explain the message of the Bible to our post modern, post- Christian and secular society.”—Amazon.com (reader review)
This interactive edition includes a DVD consisting of 66 video clips that supplement the text. Instructions are included on how to watch on a smart phone, tablet or computer.
- Chronological: Beginning with the creation of the universe, and then progressing sequentially through key Old Testament stories, it moves into the New Testament to reveal the meaning of the cross and the tomb. The main story of the Bible is tied together into one universal, all-encompassing drama.
- Sets apart the God of the Bible: Answers the question, “What makes your sacred book better than mine?” it addresses what makes the God of the Bible unique from all other gods or spirits.
- Peels religious tradition off the Bible: Readers are introduced to the Bible without the trappings of religion.
- Objective: The Bible is allowed to speak for itself in presenting the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no arm-twisting to believe. The message is presented objectively; the decision to believe or not to believe is left to the reader.
- Based on the gospel of John: Uses the gospel of John as a template; at the same time, provides necessary background stories to give the gospel context. It assumes the reader knows very little, if anything, about the Bible.
- Bible verses: Told as a story, 1570 Bible verses are woven throughout the text. The reader engages with the text of the Bible for himself.
- Illustrated: Over 100 drawings, maps and diagrams help explain the story.
- Designed to give away: The book can be passed on like a gospel tract. Readers can then learn the Bible's message on their own.
