About this Item

Paperback. 158 pages. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 5.0in. x 0.6in.Bible-Believing Christians is a book that asks the following questions: Why do contradictions within the Bible cause a problem How can trusting the Bible be problematic Is the Bible open to interpretation Is it just another religious book Is it a loaded Canon Is it Gods revelation Is the Bible inerrant Is it the Christians primary authority Is it the Word of God Is it even understandable . . . and how can we solve apparent contradictions or difficulties The inspiration for writing this book came as a result of talking with folk I love, who were genuine sceptics of the Bible, and with others who had difficulty in reconciling their traditional Christian beliefs with their own experience and knowledge of history and science. It was clear that their understanding of the Bible had become mixed up with their knowledge of Christian traditions and church teaching, and when the latter of these was in error, the Bible was being held responsible. As a result, the Bible, and the Gospel within it, was not being taken seriously and was considered untrustworthy. In other words, inadequate Christian teaching and misleading tradition was eroding peoples trust in the Bible itself. Eventually, I thought it would be good to write a short book outlining how the Bible can be trusted, how traditions must be tested, and how apparent difficulties can be resolved. All this would be in the hope that such scepticism may turn into curiosity and potentially a genuine search for faith and salvation, which is freely available to all who recognise their sin and place their trust in Jesus Christs death and resurrection.

About this title

Synopsis:

Bible-Believing Christians is a book that asks (and answers) the following questions: 

How can trusting the Bible be problematic?

Is the Bible open to interpretation?

Is it just another religious book?

Is it a loaded Canon?

Is it God’s revelation?

Is the Bible inerrant?

Is it the Christian’s primary authority?

Is it the Word of God?

Is it even understandable?

 . . . and how can we solve apparent contradictions or difficulties? 

 

Inadequate Christian teaching and misleading tradition can erode people’s trust in the Bible itself. 

 

This book outlines how the Bible can always be trusted, how traditions must always be tested, and it provides careful instruction together with examples of how apparent difficulties can be resolved!

About the Author:

Philip Layton has been a keen student of the Bible since his teenage years, with role models from within his family, many of whom are Christian ministers. As a result, his love of God, the Bible, and the Salvation Army has led to his ordination in 2000, when he was appointed with his wife, Karen, as corps officers (church pastors) to Swanage in Dorset and, then in 2003, to Hythe in Kent. Within this second appointment, Phil also took on a five-year dual appointment as a New Testament tutor at William Booth College, London (2005–2010), as well as being a corresponding member of the Salvation Army’s International Doctrine Council (2006–2011), and also a member of the Moral and Social Issues Council in the United Kingdom (2005–2013). Phil finds greatest fulfilment when proclaiming the Gospel of Christ, and he has written two books, which rely on the authority of scripture texts alone and which both highlights the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus. The first of these was The Sacraments and the Bible, published in 2007 by the Salvation Army in the United Kingdom, and the second published in 2009 through International Headquarters, which deals with the relevance and detail found in the Christian eschatological theme of The Rapture. He has vocational qualifications in management (L4) and in information technology (L3) while academic studies include a bachelor of arts degree (religious studies) from the University of Kent and a master of theology degree from Heythrop College, University of London, in which he focused on uses and abuses of the Bible, ethics, and the gospels. Phil and Karen have two children, Anastasia and Joshua, and to relax, Phil simply enjoys being with his family, playing football, mountain climbing, cycling, swimming, or being on holiday where there is plenty of sun, sand, and sea!
