REVIEWING 2013 New World Translation of Jehovah’s Witnesses is going to challenge your objectivity. Being objective means that personal feelings or opinions do not influence you in considering and representing facts. Being subjective means that your understanding is based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or ideas. If the reader finds these insights offense, it might be a little mind control at work from years of being told the same misinformation repeatedly, so ponder things objectively. We can also have preconceived ideas that have been a part of our thinking for so long; we do not question them. Preconceived is an idea or opinion that is formed before having the evidence for its truth. If we are to be effective, we must season our words, so that they are received well. Then there is the term preconception, which means a preconceived idea or prejudice. Seasoned words, honesty, and accuracy are distinctive features of effective apologetic evangelism.

Even for those whose knowledge of the Bible is limited, they are familiar with the book of Genesis. It is, after all, the story of the beginning, of what has happened. It prepares us for what is and what will be. Despite what you know, however, there are areas that may remain a mystery. Author Peter Shenouda’s Genesis: The Story, the Allegory, the Prophecy, and What Matters is the culmination of his fifteen-year study of Genesis. It is a concise treatise of this book of beginnings. Shenouda has put together information that really matters to those reading the entire Scripture, including the Apocrypha. You’ll learn whether Genesis is only a book of stories or if it offers any prophecies about the future. Discover what is behind the letters in the story of Joseph. You’ll also develop an understanding of what Jacob said about the future of Israel. Genesis: The Story, the Allegory, the Prophecy, and What Matters helps you develop a better understanding of the book and, as a result, of the Bible as a whole. It’s an opportunity to increase and deepen your biblical knowledge and faith.

In Scripture and the Authority of God, Tom Wright argues that God is the ultimate source of all authority, and that God's authority is not primarily about providing the right answers to disputed questions, but about God's sovereign, saving purposes being declared and accomplished through Jesus and the Spirit. This revised and expanded edition includes two helpful case studies, looking at what it means to keep Sabbath and at how Christians can defend martial monogamy. These studies not only offer bold biblical insights but also demonstrate the indispensable role of scripture as the primary resource for teaching and guidance in the Christian life.

Genesis: the book of beginnings. The book of Genesis is not only the first book of the Bible detailing the beginnings of Creation and life as we know it, but also serves as the over-arching and pervasive sacred reference for the true understanding of the entire Bible as intended by the Author, God, the Spirit of Truth. Genesis in its entirety, and the first eleven chapters in particular are indispensable for a meaningful understanding of God's living Word. Genesis chapter one is the majestic and glorious opening of the Bible. Armed with a real understanding of God's revealed identity, His awesome Power, and the nature of His Purpose outlined in Genesis chapters one through eleven, the student of the Bible can confidently follow the Biblical narrative as the account of God's relationship to man unfolds through the records of time and history chronicled in the pages of the Holy Bible. The Prophets, the Psalmist, the Poets, the Evangelists, and the Apostles were inspired to expound what is revealed in Genesis chapters one through eleven. Flowing out of Genesis, the Biblical narrative tells the account of creation, rebellion, and redemption in the context of God's Holiness, Righteousness, Justice, and Glory. We believe that it is absolutely necessary that the believer must meditate upon the first eleven chapters of Genesis in order to be open and well prepared to learn the Truth about God's Will, Purpose, and Plan concerning creation in general and man in particular.

Hope of the nations The book of Romans is a masterpiece of Christian doctrine through which the apostle Paul explores many fundamentals of the Christian faith. In this letter, Paul, the servant of Jesus Christ, affirms the reality of humanity’s fallen condition and God’s divine provision for redemption. Through this letter originally addressed to the believers in ancient Rome, we today can peer into the clouded mirror of divine grace and glimpse the plan of redemption as sovereignly designed by the Master Potter through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
