Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Layman's Guide to Religion is a provocative, factual often-humorous personal study of evolution and religion. The author is unsparing in his contempt for all religions and cults and for the hypocritical rascals, the pied pipers who sidetrack their innocent victims, robbing many of them of their most productive years. The author finds those who claim to speak for God while defrauding the elderly of their life's savings especially loathsome. One scholar, who prefers anonymity, remarked after reading the manuscript, that when published, this one thin volume would contain more common sense than the hundred of thousand dusty works by so called theologians over the past several millennia. The comment was most gratifying as the author world rather have the admiration of one intelligent person whom the author highly regards than the admiration and even reverence of a billion fools! Bold, blunt and unflinching, this thin volume, cuts through millenia of B.S.! The author's purpose is not offend one religion but to denigrate all of them and, hopefully, replace religion with reason and common sense. Targeting historical unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner, and the role of evolution, the author shows where religion has today become a compost of hypocrisy and pretense and the root cause of all evil! Plainly, this volume contains "All You Ever Wanted To Know About Religion Before You Put The Subject To Rest And Get On With Your Life!"

This book was released on 2011-11 with total page 642 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Have you looked around at the world and felt as though everything was falling apart? America is struggling economically and no one has any answers. Unemployment has been over 9% for over two years now. It feels like the government is trying to take control of our lives. There is speculation that Greece might collapse economically, and, if they do, other European countries will follow suit. The Middle East is in total chaos and very unstable, with all these people rioting in the streets and wreaking havoc on their respective countries, along with dictators falling and rising from power. Iran is still telling everyone they are intent on annihilating Israel as they improve their nuclear capabilities. As Christians, our hope is in Jesus Christ; we know that our God is sovereign, so all the chaos in the world has no effect on how God brings the world to an end. But the end is in sight, and people are looking for something certain in this world. There are so many questions Christians have regarding End Times Prophecy and do not understand, simply because the church has not fulfilled its purpose in rightly dividing the Word of truth for the saints. The Complete Layman's Guide to End Times Prophecy will bring together all the questions one might have regarding the end of the world and the return of the Warrior King Jesus Christ to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom. This book is clear, concise, and cogent in its message and attempts to address all End Times Prophecy questions.

Book excerpt: This history of the origins and development of Christian denominations is in layman's language. Readers will not become bogged down in technical or archaic terms. Begin by reading about the Christian groups, denominations, that developed in the time between Jesus' crucifixion and the formal origins of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches. Learn how the Roman empire came to accept Christianity as its religion, of the cooperation and struggles between the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches and how that led to their separation. Read about how the Black Death, the Crusades, the struggles within the Roman Catholic Church led some church leaders, such as Martin Luther, to attempt to reform the church, and how those attempts led to The Reformation. That opened the door to England declaring that the Church of England, the Anglican Church is the true Christian church. John Calvin laid the ground work for what became the Presbyterian and the Reformed churches. Then came the Huguenots and the Walloons, and the Puritan-Pilgrims who came to America and evolved into such as the Congregationalists. Back in England the Quakers experienced persecution that encouraged them to move to America. John Wesley began what evolved into Methodism. The American Revolution caused American churches of English origin to separate from their English roots and to become such as the Episcopalians and the Methodists. Read about the history of the many denominations that have come into being in The United States. There are the numerous "Christian" churches, the Unitarians, Spiritualist churches, Mormons, Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science, Pentecostalism and many independent non-denominational churches. It is fascinating history, and all in layman's language.

This truth id demonstrated across a wide spectrum of theological truth, including: Scripture, Messiah, Salvation, Faith, Baptism, Gospel, Grace, and Descipleship. Christianity owes a profound debt of gratitude to the Jewish people and to biblical and Second Temple Judaism for the foundations of the truths and practices that it hold dear.

Book excerpt: THE ORIGINAL TEXT OF THE NEW TESTAMENT is an essential read because we have entered a new era of textual studies and Bible translation scholarship where skepticism, ambiguity, and uncertainty have replaced ascertained certainty and faith. The constant handwringing (excessive display of concern or distress) of the textual scholars and Bible translators is now propaganda for atheists, Bible critics, and Muslims, making it even more challenging to share the Gospel.
