Amazon has published my book


Book title

I am pleased to announce that Amazon has published my book, Does the Bible Really Say That? Using Scripture to Examine Some Common Beliefs. It is available for $0.99, here. This is the lowest price that Amazon allows authors to set. It is in Kindle format.

The book is also available at no cost, in Kindle and other digital formats, from this non-Amazon page.

Here's a brief description:

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?

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.)

Much of the material has already been published here as blog posts.

Thanks for reading.
