Simply the best modern translation of the Bible in existence. Not for detailed study of the scripture, but the translation was written to be read like a novel, and it succeeds. Many scriptures I'd been confused over became clear with this translation. I'm eagerly awaiting the Old Testament.
Huh. Jesus' apostles died poor and violent deaths. The enormous hubris this author shows both in this book and in Jabez is anti-gospel, and it promotes a motive for giving that is selfish and unchristian. Avoid this book at all costs. Check out WAKING THE DEAD: THE GLORY OF THE HUMAN HEART by John Elderidge. You will be blessed beyond the telling. Don't give this author any more money. It only encourages him.
Eldridge's best book.
He poses the questions everyone asks themselves, but never publicly.
Careful. Downloading this one might change your life.
As a Christian who was brought up with the dismal view of Heaven as sitting around singing "Amazing Grace" ad nauseum for eternity, the book helped reshape my view of living a life for Christ and connected me with my hopes, dreams and desires in an entirely new manner. For everyone who has walked away from the Church and its duties and obligations, this book will help you reshape your theology into one that celebrates the life God sent His Son to die for. You're not the only one who has had questions that nobody else talks about; Elderidge brings them out into the open and offers scriptural solutions.
