Product Description

This is a fast-moving, thought-stimulating book for believers who are hungry for "something more"...or for disaffected Christians who've given up on expecting anything out of their faith. Author and speaker David Rich opens up the Scriptures to help launch readers on a path of new understanding, one that can deepen their friendship with and appreciation of the Father, as well as refresh their enthusiasm. David points to seven key things many believers may not have noticed before. In a concise, easy-to-read style, he moves through such provocatively title chapters as: the Ten Commandments were not given to be kept; trying to live for Jesus will only frustrate you; prayer doesn't change God's mind; God doesn't grade on a curve; what your see in the mirror is not the real you. Readers will be encouraged that the truth is still there to be found--though it may not be what they expect. But, as the author notes, Jesus was always the One who did the unexpected. And God is still the One who does and says the unexpected through His Word...and in the lives of His children.

Author Bio

An author and a corporate presenter for 20 years, David Rich is one of fewer than 500 Certified Speaking Professionals in the world. When he was challenged to look at the Bible in a fresh way a number of years ago, it renewed his spiritual life and led to the writing of 7 Biblical Truths You Won't Hear in Church. Through GraceCamp Ministries, David now shares the wonderful truths of the Word at retreats and Christian forums in addition to his corporate speaking.

Publisher's Weekly

Rich, a corporate presenter and retreat leader, understands that it is easier to learn something new than to relearn something familiar. From this premise, Rich successfully tackles timeworn misconceptions about God, grace and the Christian life. Rich delves deeply into erroneous beliefs that will have many an evangelical searching scripture either to disprove his statements or back them up-exactly what Rich desires. Provocative assertions abound, including these statements: the 10 Commandments were not given to be kept; attempting to live for Jesus will only frustrate; and prayer doesn't change God's mind. Rich explains why, for example, the 10 Commandments (as well as other laws) were given. The law is God's vehicle to judge the unbelieving world; it reveals people's need for a savior; and God uses its message to direct humanity to Christ. Throughout his book, Rich rounds out each biblical principle with engaging, humorous and frequently revealing personal anecdotes. In a time when many evangelicals seem content to skim the surface of biblical claims, Rich's challenging study is a refreshing and necessary alternative. (Jan.)

David Rich dares you to read his book with “the fresh mind of a child,” and to allow yourself to be driven to God’s Word. In 7 Biblical Truths You Won’t Hear in Church, he seeks to help you get away from easy, but not-quite-correct Christian ideas, and open your mind to actual biblical truths. Like what, you ask? Three of the slightly skewed ideas Rich wants to set straight are: God views some sins as greater than others; what I see in the mirror is the real me; and I can make myself live for Jesus. Rich is not the first person to tackle these thoughts, but, as always, they are revolutionary ideas straight out of the Bible.
A basic book which will challenge you to think, 7 Biblical Truths You Won’t Hear in Church is in three parts: an introductory section to encourage you to open your mind to actual Bible truth; the seven truths under study; and, suggestions for making these truths real to yourself and others. Professional speaker and author, David Rich heads the GraceCamp Ministries which introduces scriptural truth in corporate presentations and Christian retreats.
Easily and quickly read, this book provides food for thought and a challenge to compare more of your ideas to biblical truth. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
