Devout Christians and general readers can now find an enlightening literary masterpiece as author David Gibson presents his revealing book, First-Century Truth for a Twenty-first Century World. This book clarifies how God intended for us to view His word and provides answers to some of the doubts and confusion regarding the Bible’s role in our lives today.

Can society function without a common standard of weights and measures, currency, and time-keeping? Is competition in athletics possible without rules? But what about religion? Is it left up to each person what to believe and practice, or is there a universal standard? There is. God sent Jesus, not only to die as our Savior, but also to reveal an authoritative message for our salvation. Jesus then transferred this message to the apostles. Guided by the Holy Spirit, they in turn preached this message, which is now preserved in the New Testament. This is our standard today.

Filled with practical insights and enhanced by illustrations from everyday life, First-Century Truth for a Twenty-first Century World is a valuable book that will surely inspire readers to know more about these crucial issues.
