The Book That Saves the World June 23, 2016

A few weeks ago I picked up a copy of the Wall Street Journal in a hotel. As I was breezing quickly through the sections my eyes fell on something I could not believe. At the bottom of one page was an ad with this startling header: “THE BOOK THAT SAVES THE WORLD.”IMG_1257

The advertisement was for a book written by a biologist. Listen to this description…

Presents the reconciling and psychologically helping biological explanation of our ‘good and evil’ stricken human condition. In doing so it unravels the mystery behind human behavior and ends suffering and conflict at its source – providing the now urgently needed road map for the complete transformation of our lives and world.

  • Our problem is not psychological – it is spiritual.
  • Our good and evil condition is not a physical problem – it is a sin problem.
  • Our transformation is not found in a man’s book – it is found in God’s Book.

The title of the book is Freedom: The End of the Human Condition. Our only freedom is found in Christ! And the end of the human condition will only be fully realized when Christ comes and we are made like Him!

A noted professor wrote in his endorsement that this “is the book that saves the world.” THAT BOOK HAS ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN! It is called the Bible.

May God help us to read it and share it with others with renewed passion. The world is hungry. Needy souls are looking for answers. Give them the Word of God…it is “the Book that saves the world.”

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
