I was blown away by the truths that are revealed in Gordon Ferguson's book "Prepared To Answer". I have often wondered why we have so many religions and so many churches all over the world. Gordon spells out the traditions believed by most denominational churches and then he shows us that the traditions are not backed up by scripture from the bible. He in fact, shows that many of the traditions of men contradict biblical truth.

Jesus hated traditions of men and said so in Mark 7:7-8 They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men. You have let go of the commands of God and are holding onto the traditions of men."

Let every man be a liar, but the Word of God stands forever. So many of our Christian churches say that they believe the bible and follow it. Yet they also follow the traditions of the churches they belong to. Why?!!! The church of the 1st century started by Peter on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2 was not based on any tradition.

It was based on the teaching of Christ and that he died for our sins and was raised from the dead. He is our Savior and those who follow the bible, the inspired words of God, will have everlasting life.

What makes soneone a Catholic, a Methodist, a Baptist etc.? It is the traditions of their churches that they belong to. If we all followed the bible and only the bible, we would all be Christians and only Christians. Why is that so hard to understand and why do we all argue over which way is right?

Acts 2:36-41 sumarizes how to become a Christian. It shows us what the first century church did when they realized they had killed Jesus.

Format: Paperback
Doctrine is important to anyone intent on pleasing God and helping others to please God, but we must maintain the proper balance. Religion without doctrine is like a human body without a skeletal system. Try to have the right life without doctrine, and you will end up with some sort of mushy moralism that will neither help people nor please God. On the other hand, become a doctrinal expert and give no attention to your own inner person - your heart and your attitudes - and you will do more harm than good. Prepared to Answer is designed to help us be confident and knowledgable without being arrogant.

Format: Hardcover
Gordon Ferguson, former Bible teacher with the Boston Church of Christ, writes a book that challenges and gives insights into different theological movements from the mainline Churches of Christ to the Pentecostal, Charismatic movements. He gives a brief overview of different groups beliefs then proceeds to give a bibilcal reply.

The book is well written, easy to read and grasp, and follows the doctrines of the International Churches of Christ. However, with the many changes being made in the ICOC, Ferguson may have changed some of his own views since first writting this book. I personally don't know this but I'm sure that he would write some harsh words toward the failings of the ICOC leadership over the past few years.

Overall, a good read.

The book was very informative and illuminating in describing the plethora of denominations, and why denominationalism is unBiblical. Great reference book.
