New Christian's Handbook Everything New Believers Need To Know Sep 6, 2005
For old and new Christians this is a great book. Review for mature Christians(review of God's word is never a waste) a great starter for new Christians. Also I have used the book for my pre-middle school and pre-high school class. They love the book because it answers a lot of question they did not even know to ask. The homework at the end of each chapter is a good tool to make sure everyone is doing their work. It only took 2 weeks before everyone saw how much they were learning and all started doing the homework. At week 5 there was 100% attendance.
Wonderful manual on the Christian basics Dec 15, 2000
It is amazing to me how little some Christians know about their faith. Therefore, I would highly recommend Anders' book, which surveys the essential issues of the historical Christian faith. The many user-friendly charts and simple writing style make New Christians Handbook a wonderful resource that I would like to see become very popular. I have taught "New Believer" Sunday School classes in the past, and let me tell you, this will be the new book if I teach it again. It gives the reader a chance to assimiliate the teachings of each chapter--they range from who is Jesus to what are end times--and come to a succinct conclusion, with helpful questions at the back of each section along with sample prayers and possible memory verses. For those laypeople who just want to get in better touch with their faith, this would be a great place to begin.
There is always more to learn Oct 19, 2000
I have been a christain for many years and I teach sunday school. When a friend of mine accepted Christ as her savior, I wanted to give her something to help steer her in the right direction. I found this book at a local bible book store and bought it for my friend. I had the weekend to browse through the book before giving it away. I found the book to be so interesting that I kept the first book and had to return to the bookstore for another copy for my friend. I plan on purchasing more copies to give away to friends and relatives. The book is very informative and author doesn't presented a stanted view on any of the topics he covers. I learned quite a bit of information that I didn't know, and I found the book to be touching in some area and inspiring in others. I highly recommend this book if you can find a copy. I plan on buying as many as I can get my hands on.
