Is That Old-Time Religion Sufficient for Today? [29:59]
by Wally Winner rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
In this series on the book of Acts, we're examining the church of the first-century Christians and what we can learn from this dedicated fellowship of believers today. Paul was confronted with polytheism when he stood on Mars Hill in Athens and taught about the Unknown God. It was from this pagan culture that many falsehoods about God developed. Christ died believing the same promises as all of us: that He would be resurrected by his Father to immortality. We live and die with the same hope. This is the "Old Time Religion". This is the religion of the Apostles and disciples of the early church.
These books, written by people from diverse backgrounds, express the simple truth that God is one. Some of them are more scholary while others are more autobiographical. In addition, a few of them are available to read online. If you would like more in depth treatment of christian monotheism, these books are the next step to take. Note: if you know of other books, not listed here, please leave us feedback.

Some texts in the Western tradition add the words, “I am the Alpha and Omega” to this verse, but textual scholars agree that the phrase is an addition to the text, and thus versions like the NIV, NASB, etc., do not have the addition (see the notes on Rev. 1:8).
