HOUSTON (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
After a life-changing revelation, business owner and former professional football player Willie Alexander drastically changed his life plan and began to focus on his faith. After he discovered a new method of Bible study, the Defined Word Approach, Alexander wrote his first book, a study on the rich cultural heritage for individuals of African descent. Building on that study, Alexander’s second work, “The Real Story of Creation: Defined Word Approach Reveals Ancient Biblical Secrets” (published by WestBow Press), lays out an entirely new perspective on the Creation, as recounted in the Bible.
Using his Defined Word Approach, Alexander breaks down the meaning of the Hebrew words to pull out their true meaning. The result is vastly different form the traditional teaching.
“I believe our country has reached a tipping point regarding our tolerance of violence and adherence to traditional values,” says Alexander. “My book challenges churches to step up and challenge young people in a meaningful way.”
According to Alexander, the Church is in trouble and must apply itself to everyday life to survive.
“We are becoming a desensitized, non-believing society with increasingly less regard for the social compact that has made the United States the greatest nation in the world,” says Alexander. “This moral and spiritual decline is a direct result of a failure by the Church to apply the Bible to modern society.”
Alexander believes that the widely used biblical interpretations are unbelievable and have been altered for societal gain.
“Theologians and biblical scholars must acknowledge the truth,” says Alexander. “The time has come to reveal biblical stories as written by ancient writers rather than spinning them to suit the messenger.”
