Imagine for a moment...
You wake up in the same old bed, only to discover everything around you has completely changed. People speak a foreign language. The rules are different. The familiar has been turned upside down. Confused and disoriented, you're determined to make your way through...
That's the way life feels for a new believer as they begin their walk of faith. Though everything looks the same, they feel like aliens. Confronted with traditions and expectations they don't understand, some give up.
In a simple, relaxed style this devotional guidebook for new believers lays the foundation-piece by piece- for the faith-filled life, answering questions like:
* What is the Bible anyway, and why should I read it?
* What is the Old testament and what does it have to do with today?
* How does Jesus fit into my daily life?
* What's the big deal about morality?
* What's in the church for me, and why can't I just go when I feel like it?
A GUIDEBOOK FOR NEW BELIEVERS is the book that a church should put into the hands of new believers-from day one. It focuses on the key issues every believer must assimilate in order to grow in Christ.By the end of the first hundred days, the reader will understand his or her need to read the Word daily, to pray, and to be in fellowship with other Christians. New believers will gain a strong understanding of the terms and truths of Christianity.
The book is completely self-contained and demands no extra study skills, nor does it necessitate a mentor. A GUIDEBOOK FOR NEW BELIEVERS requires no lengthy study time. Instead, day-y-day, it builds truth into the lives of those recently transported from "the other kingdom" into God's kingdom.
