“BOOKENDS, A Truth that Matters”

What is truth? Truth matters? Do we hve to obey God?

My second recent effort, “BOOKENDS, A Truth That Matters,” will encourage your pursuit of Jesus and the Life He calls us to.

Genesis to Revelation recounts the story of God saying to man, “I want to make life good for you, but you need to do it my way,” and man often responding “Thanks anyhow but I want to do it my way.”

WHAT IF – – ?
So, what if someone told you that the Father offers us abundant life that is more like the Garden of Eden than most dare to think, and that the little two-letter word “if” is the only thing that stands between us and that life? BOOKENDS is a bold and passionate portrayal of that life and a candid treatise on the exclusive path into it through the narrow gate.

The apple in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve's sin. The fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Will you keep reading when you realize that “if” is part of Jesus’ statements like “if you obey my words”? What if we really believed that obedience matters? BOOKENDS assumes that Jesus meant what He said, and those who dare to read it will find themselves at various times challenged, affirmed, encouraged and/or convicted.

God intends that the Church will demonstrate the Abundant Life of His Kingdom and declare the Gospel to the ends of the earth, but we have been distracted by Satan’s temptations and lies and aren’t doing well at either living it or proclaiming it.

We can do better, we must do better, and we’ll be eternally grateful when we do. It costs us everything but it’s like buying pure gold for a penny an ounce. Let’s do it, together, even if it requires tear-stained altars and prayer closets!

The Gospel Book Store, in Berlin, OH offers my three books, BOOKENDS, THE GOOD LIFE and RESTLESS TEENS in-store and online, and Faith View Bookstore in Mt. Hope, OH has them in stock. You can also buy them directly from me if you are local, but I don’t mail them. See www.mygospelbookstore.com/search/?Author=Ken+Stoltzfus to order.

Thank you, and “God be with you!”
