  There are a few things I appreciate about this book. The first has already been mentioned. I like that it is simple. It is not an expansive systematic theology, but it discusses the basics needed to "scratch the surface" (preface) of the Christian faith. I would say this is a book for "beginning" Christians.5/5(4). There is a simple secret that ties together the Old and the New Testaments and makes the study of the Old Testament a never-ending delight. The Old Testament is designed to be a picture book, illustrating with fascinating stories the spiritual truths presented in the New Testament. This is especially true of the books of Moses (Genesis through Deuteronomy). Loss of Faith Due to the atrocities the Jewish experienced during the Holocaust, many lost their faith in humanity and God. Many were filled with disgust, as the God they were so loyal to had abandoned them when they were subject to such cruelty. Most could not accept the silence and rebelled against their religious upbringing. The fifth book in the series is called Showdown with the Shepherd. Since the cover shows a giant, I could assume it was about David and Goliath, which has always been my favorite kids Bible story! I love the lesson for children that even though they are little, if they have faith, they can do BIG things for God!

True faith has a backbone. The Book of James makes it abundantly clear that a declaration of faith by itself doesn’t amount to a hill of beans if it isn’t backed up by action (James –26). In other words, if you’re gonna talk the talk, you’ve gotta walk the walk.

Finally then in the last part of the book, which is one large section beginning with the middle of chapter six through chapter fifty, you have the realm of spiritual relationships. It is the largest part of this book because it is the most important to man -- his spirit and its relationship with God.   Hebrews 11 shows that faith is so important because God’s people are beset with weakness, poverty, and difficulty. This is why verse one tells us, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” The context for faith is a life in which things are hoped for but not yet seen or possessed.

Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be.
