Put This in Someone’s Stocking. Better Yet…in Someone’s Heart!

slider-1000x400I’m excited about the release of this new book. In fact, if you just get to read one book besides THE Book in the coming year, make it this one. Maybe you’ve been lumping all the twenty and early thirty-somethings you know in the big and nebulous category of relativistic millennials—kids who don’t think there’s any universal truth, but rather march to the beat of their own emergent drums while declaring their personal manifestos of tolerance and “transformation”. Ben Giselbach is a millennial, but he breaks the stereotypical mold in You Are a Theologian: Thinking Right about the Bible. 

He’s dedicated the book to all of his peers “who’ve left the faith because they’ve failed to believe or were not taught the first principles in this book.”  That dedication, because I know what’s in the book, makes me want to make sure every young person in my realm of influence gets a handle on this material. It’s every Christian mother’s nightmare that her children will, in spite of her best efforts, believe the lies of pop sociology and so-called science that ultimately rule out the existence of any absolute standards of doctrine and morality. It’s a reality that we are losing the majority of our children to the world. The saddest truth is that another way of saying this is that we are losing them to eternal hell. I want to make sure my children and grandchildren are not ever among those who “were not taught”. This is the book that can give you the confidence to fight for their souls by teaching them foundational concepts.

Theology is simply the study of God. This book gives a scholarly, yet easy-to-understand  and systematic approach to the exploration of the attributes of God—His character—and that of His Word, both its veracity and the application of its truth. Ben peels back the facade of the “you- can’t-be-intelligent-and-still-believe-the-Bible” mentality that your kids will face in the media, the world of academia and even in their peer groups. Best of all, he conveys concepts that can seem lofty in a very readable format. You will “get this” and you will be able to explain your theology to others in a way that will bring them logically to the pivotal point of accepting or denying God and His Truth. 

I’m sure there are other studies that succinctly pack this much foundational truth into one short volume. I’m just not sure where. You could put it in someone’s stocking and you just might put it in her heart, too. That would be a pretty good gift.
