52 Words Every Christian Should Know: Sundays at 10am (co-ed)
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master-that’s all.”
Humpty Dumpty was clearly a 19-th century postmodernist. The problem with postmodernism is that it doesn’t work well outside ivory towers. Humpty Dumpty wouldn’t want to be on a plane whose pilot subscribed to his reconstructionist philosophy of word meanings. Anyone who flies surely hopes the pilot and the air traffic controller are on the same page. Words constitute the common currency that gets us on the same page.
Kendell Easley believes words and their meanings are vital now and have eternal consequences. So he has provided this handy resource that both informs and inspires.
In 52 Words Every Christian Should Know, Easley provides a Bible verse in which each word or concept is used, a succinct definition, and helpful articles further explaining the significance of each entry. Each of the 52 terms is presented in a two-page study, organized into 8 major biblical categories. All begin with a pertinent citation from the Holman Christian Standard Bible, continue with a concise definition, move on to a brief discussion, and close with thought-provoking questions and a devotional prayer. Finally, Easley poses interactive questions to the readers, drawing them closer into a personal relationship with God.

If Jesus was not God in human flesh, Christianity is exploded. We are left with just another religion with some beautiful ideas and noble ethics; its unique distinction has gone."
