Now in this updated and expanded version, Paul Little's book can continue to provide hope and help to a new generation of truth-seekers."--J. P.

10. Things to Come
These are topics everyone wants to know more about and Paul Little lays it in a simple to read manner.
this edition is an expanded edition, but mrs. little was the one that added to it with mr. littles own notes+ and she also added some info. to update some of the info. (bring it into our current societies needs).
at 1st I was afraid that the "updated" material would take away from the original work, but it doesn't. at least as far as I can tell, as I am still in chapter 1.
this is a study-book. to me at least. I take the info given, and as I read I write down my questions. then I go into the bible and dig out the answers.
ever since I got this book ... know what you believe, I have believed very strongly that we need to know what it is we believe. how do u claim allegiance to something when you don't know what it means to believe in it???
I taught my children to know what they believed in. I taught them why Christianity is different, by teaching them what other religions teach - and then showing them what the Bible teaches. without knowing this out of print book, my children were influenced by it, and to this day, they still are influenced by it :)))
i am hoping, that as i continue to go through this book (i have an audio version, because my eyes give me trouble), i will find all the doctrines to be the solid doctrines that mr. little originally wrote about. there is so much apostasy in the church today. it would make me horribly upset if this apostasy has fallen on this wonderful book.
In this book, Paul Little explains the Christian belief on a variety of topics pertaining to the Faith, in a way that is easy to understand. Even tho I don't agree with him on every point, I recommend that every Christian should read & learn from this book.
