Coon Rapids, Minn. (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Reading the Bible is a personal experience for many people, and sometimes its messages don’t come across clearly. In his new book, author Adebola Isola, a university student, shares the insights he’s gleaned from his own reading of scripture, told in an easy, conversational style that’s easy to follow. He writes that he was inspired to write the book because he wanted to share God’s message with children, teenagers and adults who don’t understand it.
“The Greatest Revelation: Series One” focuses mainly on Bible passages from the Book of Matthew, with each verse followed by a short interpretation. For instance, Isola explores Matthew 4:13: “You are the salt of the earth.” His explanation is the earth needs us or it can’t function, so everyone has responsibilities to God. Regarding Matthew 15:8 (These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me), he explains that Christianity must come from the heart. Instead of talking about Christianity, people need to act and serve God from the bottom of their heart.
Isola humbly presents his interpretation of the Bible, poking fun at himself and some of his initial misconceptions about scripture. For instance, when he was a child, he thought the verses that talk about cutting off part of the body that cause people to sin was literally – that he should cut his body. He later realized, with God’s help, that the scripture referred to metaphorically shedding things that cause people to sin.
Author Adebola Isola, a student at the University of Minnesota, is majoring in economics. Isola was born in Lagos in Nigeria, Africa. His father, an engineer, lives in Nigeria, and his mother, a nurse, lives in America.
