Item description for Modern Church: Where Tradition Trumps Truth by Randy Arendell...

Overview
With an innumerable variety of churches to consider, how does one evaluate which is biblically accurate? God presents truth in His Word, yet that Word is interpreted in countless ways and debated endlessly by the masses. Even educated church leaders, often with impressive academic distinctions, cannot agree on doctrine. How can one person with a lifetime of studying Greek disagree doctrinally, on the same subject, with another who has accomplished the same? Yet it is common, and denominations are the result. Since God is not divided on truth, could He not have presented His Word in a less divisive way? Modern Church: Where Tradition Trumps Truth addresses this mass doctrinal division and shows the fundamental reason for its existence. And in seeing the problem exposed, the reader who accepts the premise will begin building a firm doctrinal foundation needed for evaluating the biblical accuracy of any church, denomination, or idea.

Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Church: Where Tradition Trumps Truth?

Our place in the bible.  Oct 28, 2008
If you've ever wondered about how your life today matches up with the lives you read about in bible stories and have come up short then this is the book for you! Perhaps the stories about ancient traditions that shaped the lives of characters from the bible do not feature in your life, or perhaps you do adhere to some of the traditions, but not others.

If you've ever questioned "Why?" at any of this then the answers are given in a clear and straight forward manner. The history of the world is a fascinating subject. It is rare to find a book that describes where we've come from and shows clearly the conditions in place for today and what we might expect in times to come.

This is just such a book.

Well worth a re-read. Two thumbs up.
 
May the truth trump tradition. Read this book!  Jul 25, 2008
The Bible is such a huge book. How can I wrap my arms around it if I don't understand the plot? Why are there so many churches teaching differing doctrines today? They all have proof texts for their stated positions yet they must reject a portion of scripture to hold to their tradition. So how am I to make sense of it all?

Randy Arendell has made it easy in "Modern Church where Tradition Trumps Truth". He lays out the foundations on which to build sound doctrine. There is a difference between Israel and the Body of Christ. Failure to make that distinction results in doctrinal confusion and divisions within the Body. God is not the author of confusion. There is a way for us to understand the word. Don't be tossed to and fro any longer. Buy this book.

I highly recommend it to everyone. I am going to be purchasing extra copies to give out to friends.

Wow!! Where do I begin. The church has done a very good job of confusing the average believer and it has created a division based on denominational lines. Every denomination from Baptist to Church of God and all in between claim to preach the true word of God!!! Well let's face the facts. The differences are so obvious and dividing that each denomination can't be totally right. This means that Tradition's of each denomination has crept in and the Truth of God's word has been put on the back burner. Randy's book addresses why and how this has happened and then goes on to inform everyone from the average believer to the most advanced bible student of basic biblical truths that will answer most, if not all of the questions that divide the church today. This book is a must read and is laid out in such an orderly way that you could even teach a class from it. You won't be sorry you bought it!!!
 
Do yourself a favor and read this book!  Jun 22, 2008
Do yourself a favor and read Modern Church: Tradition Trumps Truth!

Randy Arendell is a gifted teacher that has put together a very well written and easy to understand book on rightly dividing scripture. His book will help you easily comprehend complex Bible texts that may have previously left you baffled and unsatisfied. If you avoided certain sections of scripture because it confused you or left you feeling like scripture contradicted itself, use Mr. Arendell's tool to teach you how to read those "problem texts". The Bible will come to life for you, and this will not only make reading your Bible a pleasant experience, but it will also deepen your relationship with the Lord!

Modern Church: Tradition Trumps Truth will open your eyes and feed your spirit. It is a must read for every Christian that seeks to know God and desires to understand clearly what God has to say to you in scripture. It is a life changing and masterfully written book! Mr. Arendell's book would also be a useful tool for any Bible teacher that wishes to help others study scripture.
 
Must read for believers!  May 8, 2008
Randy Arendell does a great job of laying a foundation to understanding your Bible. He very clearly explains the difference between Israel and the Body of Christ, and what that means for a believer today. This is crucial to any Christian!

You do not have to be a Bible scholar to understand this book as it is very well written. This book will help you rightly divide the Word and understand God's Message. It will make your Bible study easier and it will help you put God's Word to use in your life.
