Publisher's Summary

Are you a spiritual person? A mature Christian? The apostles do not think that you are unless you have mastered the basic principles of the oracles of God. The writer of the book of Hebrews wanted to present some exciting thoughts about Jesus. He wanted to start exploring some heady insights about the work of Messiah, but he felt frustrated because people seemed unprepared for these deeper, spiritual lessons. He wanted to go deep, but people were still shallow. They did not have the basics down. He wrote, "It is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food" (Hebrews 5:11-12). In Elementary Principles, D. Thomas Lancaster takes listeners back to first-century Messianic Judaism to explore what he calls "an apostolic catechism", the foundational basics of discipleship to Jesus of Nazareth. Think you know it all already? Get ready to rethink your religion. This book of "basics" challenges common Christian assumptions while laying out clear, biblical definitions for all followers of Jesus. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food. (Hebrews 5:11-12)

maddening

The reader is fine and the content is fine but the CONSTANT announcements of “new heading” is enough to drive someone insane. It detracts from the flow of the book and I have no earthly idea why this was done.

I’ve had other titles from this author and FFOZ and this did not happen. I would give it a negative rating if I could.

You’ve done the author and the book A GREAT DISSERVICE!

Not just another evangelical book

It makes you think. The author talks about 6 elementary principles with different definitions than what I grew up with in church and college. It's a good read.

Eye Opening Principles of the Faith

I strongly recommend this book. When I came to know The Lord in the Christian faith 20 years ago. It's was an amazing time for me finding Jesus The Messiah. But , there was always an unsettling feeling with in me. This book was able to fill in some of those questions I had. So happy that a new journey in Messiah is growing.

skip to the last the chapters

Christian background? listen to the preacher.
secular background? only the main points apply.
I hope that ffoz has more to offer than "hey Christian's. your wrong. this is why".
