Reviews - What do customers think about The Teaching Ministry of the Church?
From the Back Cover May 14, 2010
From the Review and Expositor: "The author of this straightforward discussion writes with the combined interests and insights of the pastor and the teacher. Beginning with a clear analysis of the importance of belief and the way we exercise Christian faith, he proceeds to a discussion of the Bible, God the Father, Jesus Christ, the atonement, the Holy Spirit, the Church, forgiveness, and life everlasting. This is not primarily a theological treatise, and yet it rings true to what most of us would consider a sane and fruitful view. And it is written in language that a thoughtful layman can readily grasp. For that reason it is a good book also for preachers to read. The central emphasis is vital and conducive to the strengthening of faith and the production of a more fruitful manner of life. The author does not argue in the manner of apologetics, but he states the truths with such frankness and obvious sincerity that they are more convincing than argument. He leads the reader to look at questions and doubts fearlessly, and to see what may well lie beyond the questions...Many questions are being asked today that point to our Christian faith. A book like this will help the pastor or the chaplain or the teacher to give quiet guidance and steadying support when such questions are raised."
