UPDATE for Charter of the Christian Faith.
My new book, Charter of the Christian Faith, has been finalized! It discusses, opens up and reveals Jesus’ thoughts and intent in what we call the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:3-12. (The companion volume – the Study Guide – is also available online now.) These 8 tightly-packed verses are 8 Steps Toward Godliness and reveal how the Church of Jesus Christ is supposed to grow and mature. As Dr. Gary Royer (Professor of Intercultural Studies, Southwestern Assemblies of God University) says, “An avid storyteller, Gene taps into this talent to graphically illustrate each declaration of this treasured section of the Sermon on the Mount. Although some Bible readers consider the Beatitudes as lofty idealism to serve as an unreachable goal to remind us of our scarred humanity, Gene describes real-life means to actually incorporate these principles into our daily life.” Charter of the Christian Faith has been completed, and is available on Amazon.com in both paperback and e-book.
Print available for $9.99. E-book for $2.99.
Of course, Reflections on Faith and History is still available on Amazon.com. Available for $7.99. E-book for $2.99.
For centuries, many books have been written about Jewish history and culture, and Israel is heavily in the news today. Nevertheless, the endeavor I have been (slowly) working on for years is about ancient Jewish history with Melchizedek, Abraham, and Jesus as the focal points. Now that Charter of the Christian Faith complete, I can get back on this one.
I am also collaborating with my brother, Paul Linzey, on a book about Giant Springs, Montana, using the underground aquifer as a metaphor for what happens inside each of us. We took a trip to Montana and spend a year of research on it. The working title is Invisible Forces and Hidden Issues. We both are busy with other projects, but we’ll eventually get back on this one. It is very interesting!
But Paul is an important writer in his own right. Please visit paullinzey.com and check out his books. He’s a great guy, and you’ll also enjoy reading his posts.
