The Christian community is a vibrant and flourishing worldwide community of believers held together by their common faith in Jesus Christ and the divine truths of the Holy Bible. The scriptures are the source of their strength and contain within the promise of eternal salvation that is granted to all who choose to believe. Pastor Garrick Bridgeforth has been called by God to bring a genuine and deeper understanding of the scriptures through his book, Words of The Bible explained. This book’s purpose is to enlighten and deter those who, by either sheer ignorance or selfish, malicious intent, would end up misunderstanding or even intentionally distorting the messages of the Holy Bible, leading themselves and those who follow them away from the original teachings. This book does not read like a standard dictionary of definitions. Instead, the terms and concepts are explained in great depth, analyzed in the context as it is found in the Bible, clarified further with conventional wisdom, and delivered in a way modern readers could understand. Words of The Bible explained is an ideal companion book to have when reading the Bible, expanding a Christian’s understanding of the scriptures.
