I have written an e-book, Does the Bible Really Say That?, which is free to anyone. To download that book, in several formats, go here.

Free e-book available -- Does the Bible Really Say That?

Book title

The above graphic is the cover of a free e-book. To know more about the background text used in that cover, you can use the graphic as a link.

During 2012, it was my privilege to lead a small group, at my church, on the theme of “Does the Bible really say that?”

Since then, much of that material has found its way into an ebook, or e-book, of the same title. As of March 13, 2013, this book is ready to distribute, free to anyone who wants it. If you wish, you may distribute the book to others.

The topics covered, some in more depth than others, some with a rather firm conclusion, some not, are as follows:

►The culture of Bible times and understanding the Bible
►Genres of Biblical literature
►Was praying for sinners important in the early church? What are the types of prayer, and what did the early church pray for?
►Must the husband always be the spiritual leader in a home?
►Must marriage ceremonies be conducted in church?
►Is homosexuality the worst sexual sin?
►Is prophecy easy to understand? How certain is prophecy about the tribulation, the rapture and the anti-Christ?
►Can a believer lose her salvation? What does the Bible say about the characteristics of believers?
►Do we go to heaven immediately upon death? Do resurrected believers have a body?

Some of the material in the book was previously posted to this blog, and I thank all readers and commenters.
The World English Bible, which is in the public domain, is quoted extensively, which is fitting, since what the Bible has to say is more important than what I have to say. Besides being in the public domain, the language is mostly understandable to 21st-century readers. (No believeth, hath, thee, etc.)

book is available as a Word document (a little over 100 pages, with quite a bit of space, and in 13-point type) as an .html file, as a .PDF file, as a Kindle document, and as an epub file (the Barnes & Noble Nook uses such files, as do some other e-readers.)There are links to all five of these formats on this page.

Thanks for reading!
