Book Give Away--God's Truth Revealed
I absolutely love the tone of Kathy Howard’s new book God’s Truth Revealed. She is a gentle and humble teacher, reminding me of the Son of God, who is described in the same way. The content of the book is an excellent source. She takes readers on a journey, helping them discover through Bible verses who they are, why they are here, and where they are going—questions every person asks themselves sometime/somewhere in life.
The content is excellent and inviting. Kathy has developed this book from material she has taught to seekers and new believers. Besides pointing her readers to Bible answers in each chapter, Kathy also engages readers in the “Personal Story” sections. There, she connects with readers by sharing the testimonies of people she shared the material with earlier. Some stories of conversions are dramatic such as a nudist becoming a believer. I found other stories heart warming, especially the ones of seekers who had ordinary, day-to-day struggles. Their joy evident, I found myself rejoicing too in their new-found faith.
These sections are further encouragement, and as a veteran Christian, I found many applications for my life: Churchy Words Dictionary; Scripture Memory Tips; Scripture Memory Plans (the basics); General Helps for Leading a Study for New Believers and Seekers; and the Leader’s Guide.
I will put one of these books in my library because I can see myself recommending it for years to come. I have ordered extra copies for friends who are both new Christians and seekers. Where I worship we have many new believers, and I will recommend the use of this book as a classroom and personal guide that handily and successfully reveals the biblical foundations for the Christian faith.
Short Description of book:This twelve-week Bible study presents the basic beliefs of Christianity in a way that is engaging and personal. With the understanding that faith is not illogical, the study provides biblical, historical, and scientific evidence to support creation; the reliability of the Bible; and the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Kathy takes participants on a straightforward journey through the Bible to understand the importance of knowing God, not just knowing about Him. Each chapter also includes the real-life story of an individual who became a Christian as an adult.

Here’s the good news. I plan to give away the copy that New Hope Publishers sent for my review. Want to win God’s Truth Revealed? Just leave a comment and I’ll put your name in a drawing to be held on March 20, a Saturday.
Advance notice of an upcoming drawing. Tyndale is releasing a new DVD by VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer called What’s in the Bible that takes children on a fun and informative jaunt through the whole Bible. I’m in the process of viewing it—so far my grandchildren and I find it amazing—I’ll have my review posted early the week of March 21, and I have two complimentary certificates entitling the winners to pick up DVDs at your local bookstores. We’ve even made arrangements for out of country winners.
