Chapter 1

Setting the Table

Ever since God became important to me at age 13, I have been asking questions about the Christian faith. Some of the answers received were intellectually satisfying and others were not. My problem was that some of my mentors were spiritually immature and theologically ignorant. But the saving grace was that I read the Word of God. I read and I read and I read. This continued throughout my teenage years.

One of the marvelous results of my spiritual awakening was an intense thirst and deep respect for God’s Word. So, while I may not have had the best theological guides, I was falling in love with the words and truths of the Bible. Even though much of it was difficult to understand, this soaking in the Scriptures helped me to be more discerning of teachers and teachings that did not match the Biblical witness. The Bible became my home base from which I went out to explore the theological conclusions of others, only to return home to compare them with Scripture. This solid grounding helped me navigate through seminary, where there was an open attitude toward modern interpretations, uncommitted to the authority of Scripture. This wrestling with liberal theology forced me back to the Bible to see what it had to say.

This book you are now reading is the fruit of this lifelong exploration asking hard questions while being seriously committed to the written Word. There is a good chance you will disagree with me on some points, but I ask you to bear with my arguments and glean from them what you can.
