Out with the old; in with the new! In 1983, we published the premier edition of our Study Course in Christian Evidences. Its 13 lessons examined such topics as the existence of God, the inspiration of the Bible, the deity of Christ, Bible/science issues, the creation/evolution controversy, etc. In its initial two-color format, it had the appearance of a 4-page issue of Reason & Revelation. Nine years later, in 1992, we republished the Study Course in paperback book form, and it eventually became our best-selling volume (we reprinted it more times than I can count!).
But that was then, and this is now. The 8-year-old Study Course did exactly what it was designed to dohelp strengthen the faith of the Christian and aid in the conversion of the non-Christian. After almost a decade of stellar service, however, the material in it had become somewhat dated, and it was in desperate need of revision. Therefore, about a year ago I set out not merely to revise it, but to completely rewrite it. That task is now finished, and it is with great pleasure that I introduce you to the new kid on the block. Rock-Solid Faith: How to Build It is the first volume of a proposed trilogy of books that not only will revise and replace the old Study Course (which has been out of print for several months), but which will expand and improve it as well.
Each volume in the Rock-Solid Faith series will contain 13 lessons (so that teachers may use them in quarterly Bible school classes if they desire). Each book also will have a beautiful, full-color, eye-catching cover, and an easy-to-read type style. And each will be a sequel to the volume that precedes it.
For example, Rock-Solid Faith: How to Build It is designed to provide the initial evidence upon which Christianity rests, and to help a person build a faith exactly like the faith Jesus described the wise man as having builtone that, when the vicissitudes of life hit, fell not, for it was founded upon the rock (Matthew 7:25). In its 350 pages, volume one contains four initial chapters investigating the many faces and causes of unbelief. Three chapters are devoted to the cosmological, teleological, and moral arguments for the existence of God. The two chapters that follow examine the compilation, content, and inspiration of the Bible, and include an in-depth discussion of the evidence that documents the Good Books claim of being an inspired, revelation from God (e.g., its unity, factual accuracy, fulfilled prophecy, scientific foreknowledge, etc.). The last four chapters discuss the deity of Christ, Gods plan for mans salvation, the essentiality, singularity, and uniqueness of Christs church, and the mercy and grace of an omnipotent, sovereign God.
Volume two in the trilogy, Rock-Solid Faith: How to Sustain It (which we hope to have in print by the end of the year), will contain 13 chapters intended to help nourish and strengthen that faith. Volume three, Rock-Solid Faith: How to Defend It, will provide ammunition that the Christian soldier can use to repel attacks against the Faith (it is this volume that will deal with Bible/science and creation/evolution issues, among others).
Rock-Solid Faith: How to Build It has just arrived from our printer and is now available for purchase. [I also am in the process of taping a 13-lesson video series (which should be ready by July 1) to accompany the book chapter by chapter.] Cost for the book is $10/copy ($2 s/h), with a 15% discount for 10 or more copies (15% s/h for multiple copies).
