On My Bedside Table

Well, I said three days ago that I had a bunch of blogging ideas, and then when I went to write them, I realized that I had fit all of my ideas into two posts! There were a lot of thoughts and happenings covered in those last two.

But, don't worry - I have something to share with you.

I have found a book that I love! Let me introduce it to you:

Readers of this blog, I introduce you to 'Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe' by Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears.

The name pretty well explains what this book is about. It's about Doctrine, what Christians should believe. What I really love about it, though, is that they don't just tell you to believe something. They explain it all to you in a way that is easy to understand.

When I was a junior at Corban, I took Theology - everyone did, because it was required. I learned a lot, but I felt like the textbooks that we used were very confusing - very scholarly. Driscoll's writing style is one that reads easily and smoothly, which means that not only is the information important and life/thought-changing, but it's easy to understand!

Each chapter discusses a different topic, and I've really barely scratched  the surface, but the explanation of the Trinity in the first chapter is great - I feel like I have gotten more answers than I've had before. 

So, if you're a Christian who is interested in furthering your relationship with God - meaning the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, of course, because the three are one - read this book, along with the Bible! It will help you to understand the Bible even better than you already do! If you're not a Christian, I'm not sure how helpful this will be for you - go for the Bible, it's the real deal!
