I absolutely love the tone of Kathy Howard's new book God's Truth Revealed. She is a gentle and humble teacher, reminding me of the Son of God, who is described in the same way. The content of the book is an excellent source. She takes the readers on a journey, helping them discover through Bible verses who they are, why they are here, and where they are going--questions that I believe every person asks themselves sometime/somewhere in life.

The content is excellent and inviting. Besides pointing new believers and seekers to Bible answers in each chapter, Kathy also engages readers in the "Personal Story" sections. She connects with readers by sharing the circumstances of how someone gave their life to Christ. Some stories of conversions are dramatic such as a nudist becoming a believer. I found other stories heart warming, especially the ones of seekers who had ordinary, day-to-day struggles. Their joy is evident and I found myself rejoicing too in their new-found faith.

These sections are great encouragement, and as a veteran Christian I found many applications for my life: Churchy Words Dictionary; Scripture Memory Tips; Scripture Memory Plans (the basics); General Helps for Leading a Study for New Believers and Seekers; and the Leader's Guide.

This book is going into my library because I can see myself recommending it for years to come. I have ordered extra copies for friends who are both new Christians and seekers. Where I worship we have many new believers, and I will suggest the use of this book as a classroom and personal guide that handily and successfully reveals the biblical foundations for the Christian faith.

"God's Truth Revealed" is a 12-session small-group (or individual) Bible study for those who are exploring what Christianity is about. Several of the sessions would also be good for new believers. The study covered: the Bible is accurate; God is real and how mankind can know Him; God created everything and made humankind special; the purpose mankind was created for; why the world and our relationship with God is so messed up; what God did to make it possible for us to have a fixed relationship with Him; why we can't fix this ourselves; how we can be made right with God; God also gave us a future hope; and what God wants from us once we're a Christian.

Each session started with a brief illustrative story then introduced a new concept. The author gave Bible verses for the participants to read (some of which were included in the book) and then discussed those verses. She gave cultural, historical, and scientific evidence to help the reader better understand the idea and verses. She defined the "churchy" words when she used them. She asked some good discussion questions based on the verses. Each session ended with a testimony of how God brought a person into a personal relationship with Him and a "Find Out More" page-long study with some more verses and questions.

At the end of the book, there was a "churchy words" dictionary, suggested Bible Reading plan, Scripture memory tips, and a leader's guide.

I thought that she picked good verses to study, that the questions were generally very good, and that the book was written in an easy to understand way, especially for people not used to Christian words or concepts. She included information on the accuracy of the Bible and why evolution isn't how God created. She promoted actively building a relationship with God through time spent with him in two-way communication (prayer) and reading God's Word.

There were a couple places where I felt the author didn't cover the full meaning of a phrase or concept or I would have defining them slightly differently. I also would have included another session or two to cover some more key concepts from the Old Testament. However, overall, I felt the study was an excellent one and would recommend it to seekers.

As a pastor I am always looking for easy-to-read and easy-to-understand books and resources on Christian theology and the faith. Kathy Howard's new book, God's Truth Revealed: Biblical Foundations for the Christian Faith is one of those good resources for new believers.

Howard's goal is to cover the Christian faith from Creation to Resurrection. The book covers much of Christian theology and the major themes of the Bible especially sin and salvation. After reading the book, it is apparent that one of Howard's primary objectives isn't to just inform but to evangelize. The gospel and all of its intricate parts are dealt with in several chapters and repeatedly the author calls on sinners to repent.

The main subjects discussed by the author include the Bible, creation, the Fall, Jesus, the cross, repentance, and forgiveness. As you can see, there is a heavy emphasis on the gospel (and for that she should be commended).

My main concern with the book regards how little is said regarding the Old Testament. Though the author frequently quotes from the Old Testament, she skips much of it in her survey of major Christian doctrines. After discussing creation and the Fall (Genesis 1-3) she then skips to the New Testament. My concern is for new believers to think that everything from Genesis 4-Malachi 3 is unnecessary and secondary. One must wonder why God went through so much trouble writing the Old Testament if it wasn't central to Christian theology?

Another concern regards how brief some subjects are treated. Of course I am different from most Christians in that I have an undergraduate and an advanced masters in theology and so I long a lot of theological detail. The author says what needs to be said but leaves a lot of rocks uncovered. The author is essentially forced to do this due to the space given to discussion questions and personal stories. Though these other aspects aren't good (they are oftentimes very helpful), but they force the author to be more selective and brief on what is discussed in the main text. As a result the author can only speak in a matter-of-fact way without interacting with some of the common questions that new believers raise.

However, the material that is given is quite good. I was pleased to read early on the authors inclusion and discussion on the issue of manuscripts and textual criticism. In her chapter on Scripture the author gave one of the best and most precise explanations of textual criticism and how it assures us that what we have is accurate and true. Throughout the book the author gives these sort of insights always in a brief but well discussed manner.

Overall, this is a good book but not the best. As one that likes to read boring theology, I could have done without some of the discussion questions and personal stories, but I am not like most Christians. The author has a heart for young believers and unbelievers and pleads for the unrepentant to embrace the cross and the redeemed to live like it.

For those looking for an easy to read book for beginners, this is a good place to start.
