Who Am I 2

This book is made to be read over a year, one chapter a week to enable you to meditate on the question that you have just read upon. There are over 3,000 Scripture questions recorded in the Old and New Testament. Dr. O.S. Hawkins picked these 52 Scripture questions to address the broadest spectrum of topics possible. This book is bound with imitation leather, over a hardcover that enables durability. The front however is soft to the touch, when I saw this book I was very impressed!

Personal Opinion:

Underlined part

This book is not for me personally, let me explain why,the format that this book is written in is in a personal opinion/preaching style, it’s like listening to a sermon. This book although written like any conservative Christian book, has some very good parts that I enjoyed. The way he took the English words, and shows us what they meant in Greek is amazing, I took many notes while reading this book, and highlighted several things in my new study Bible. I recommend this book to any Conservative Christian.

Mission:Dignity

All the authors royalties and any proceeds from The Jesus Code and The Joshua Code go to the support of Mission:Dignity, a ministry of the Dallas-based GuideStone Financial Resources that enables thousands of retried ministers (and, in most cases, their widows) who are living near the poverty level to live out their days with dignity and security. Many of them spent their pastoral ministry in small churches that were unable to provide adequately for their retirement. They also lived in church owned parsonages, and upon their vocational retirement, had to vacate them as well. Mission:Dignity is a way of letting these good and godly servents know they are not forgotten and will be cared for in their declining years. All of the expenses of their ministry are paid out of an endowment that has been raised for such, so that everyone who gives to Mission:Dignity can be assured that every cent of their gift goes to one of these precious saints in need.
