More About the Author

Originally from the UK, Duncan Heaster is pastor of a large church in Riga, Latvia. Having written over 20 books and having edited "Gospel News" magazine for over 20 years, Duncan says that he sees his writing and preaching as merely sowing seed- God's seed, insofar as his writing is a presentation of God's word, the Bible. He feels unable to change anyone by his own argument or words- but is rather simply presenting to them the direct teaching of the Bible, stripped of all human theology and tradition. This has led him to reject popular Christian doctrines such as the trinity, immortal soul, a personal devil, hell as a place of eternal fire. But in their place he presents the real Christ, as Son of God, son of man, Lord and Saviour; who has opened the way to resurrection from the dead in God's Kingdom. Duncan Heaster is married to Cindy and they have a young family. They are well known as Christadelphians, and operate Carelinks Ministries.

I've had this book now for something like four years and it's getting pretty beat up because I keep coming back to it again and again.

WARNING, THIS IS NOT A "BIBLE BASICS" BOOK!!!!!!!

The author states, "In a sense, Jesus 'became' God to many Christians all because a group of bishops decided it was so."

This is not true because we have old manuscripts of the New Testament that confirm that Jesus is God before any group of bishops supposedly stated that.

Jesus Himself stated, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM." (John 8:58).

Jesus told the Jews, "Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?" (John 10:32)
They answered, "For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God". (John 10:33)
Makest thyself God????? Even the Jews figured that out.

Then you have Isa 7:14 prophesying "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." Immanuel means, "God With Us."
That was fulfilled in Matt 1:23

Then you have Luke 5:20 where the paralyzed man is brought into a house and Jesus says, "Man, thy sins are forgiven thee." Then the Jews started thinking this to themselves, in Luke 5:21, "Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"
Who can forgive sins but God alone???? Even they figured it out that Jesus was claiming to be God.

Then you have doubting Thomas which stated to Jesus, "My Lord and My God." John 20:28

So again this is not a "Bible Basics" book.

This book was quite helpful in helping me understand certain sections of the Bible that I had previously struggled with. In particular it helped me understand the nature and personality of God. I highly suggest that anyone looking for help in their personal Bible study take a look at this book.

The great strength of this book is the sheer number of Bible verses (and no other source) that the author uses in tackling each subject - and unlikely most authors he reads the verses in careful context. For anyone who is interested in seeing what the Bible itself says this book is a real help.

The book is perfect for studying at home and discovering the bible all over again. The Book goes through the whole range of bible topics and themes. The author explains things clearly while using the bible not his own thoughts to prove his points.

This book has a lot of wrong information in it. It is best if you are new in your faith not to get this book. It is also best for you to discover for yourself what the Bible has to say to you. I suggest you study the four gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and see what Jesus said. Use a concordance and look up what the original wording meant. If you are strong in your beliefs you might find this book an interesting interpretation of what the Bible says then check it out on your own by doing a subject study of the Bible taking in all of the scripture not just bits and pieces.

Having been warned this book was different from the Established Creeds of most churches I was led to check it out. I'm only half way through, but have nothing but good things to say. As an advocate of reading the Bible to find God's message to me, it amazed me to find a book worth recommending to those who realize that what they hear in the orthodox church does not match the Bible. This book ties together the basic fundamentals necessary for attaining eternal life. It is a must if you want to know what the Bible really does say!

Although I am a non-trinitarian as well, I found a lot of what was presented in this book to be very far out there. Mainly when it talked about how angels can never sin and how he denies the pre-existence of Jesus Christ. Even when I looked up the scriptures sited I had a hard time understanding how they had come to the interpretations that they did.

And in case you are not aware... this book was written by a Christadelphian. I myself was aware of the authors religious background when I purchased the book. I have always been a non-trinitarian and wanted to find a bible study that I could actually enjoy. I did enjoy parts of the book and but I still disagree with a lot of their conclusions.
