Description

I am part of a vast ocean of Christians that view the Word of God through a different set of eyes than those of many pastors, professors, and church staff members. I have interest in the deep theology of scripture and recognize my need to be exposed to and covered by the Word of God similar to that of my “called” brothers in Christ. Yet I want it delivered to me in a simple “worker’s language.” Recent translations have strived toward this end and have made headway. Yet the finished product is still from scholars that often describe the original transcripts from a theological standpoint rather than a worker’s standpoint.

The Eastern Standard Version (ESV) published in 2001 was written to carefully weigh accuracy against the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek scrolls. It stands as one of the better accepted of sound English Bible Translations. Because of its wide acceptance, I have used this translation for my resource. I have certainly considered a host of opinions and writings of a host of scholars but my source of authenticity has always been God’s Word. In writing this book, I strongly encourage our religious leaders to go back to the reading, writing, and arithmetic basics of God’s Word. Just as I believe, we need to get back to the basics in educating our children in school in reading, writing, and arithmetic, we also need to get back to the reading, writing, and arithmetic basics in educating God’s people in church. Perhaps such consideration is “out of touch” with the advanced theology of today.

As a layman, not an ordained or seminary graduate, I might be considered a “doctrine dummy.” This book, entitled “Foundations of our Faith” is written for this vast ocean of people. We are not dummy people, but we are somewhat hindered in our study by deep theological doctrine. This book tries to take us back to reading, writing, and arithmetic doctrine.
