Plain Talk About Who God Is [2 pages]
by Anthony Buzzard rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
Trying to read the Bible without understanding who the God of the Bible is is likely to be frustrating. Unfortunately so much pressure and dogmatism now surrounds the issue of who God is that Christians are unable to approach the text of Scripture with an open mind. A great measure of fear attends their studies, because they have been told what kind of a God they are to find in the Bible, or else...hellfire! This is a hopeless atmosphere for calm and reasoned investigation. The matter of deciding who God is in the Bible is relatively simple, if we follow sound procedure.
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.
Is That Old-Time Religion Sufficient for Today?

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.
