Do you know the 31 things God hates or the 15 keys to wisdom? How about the 7 basics of theology or the 28 things the Bible says about sex? With 50-plus lists, this book provides facts that range from fun to interesting to faith buildingand educational. You'll even find a list of 101 jokes about biblical characters and events. Each listed item is accompanied by Scripture references for those who desire to learn more.
How many people know the thirty-one things God hates, the twenty things missing in heaven, or the twenty-two prophecies fulfilled by Jesus? Merely to mention such lists piques interest, because almost everyone finds list irresistible. Bob Phillip's new book plays to that natural curiosity, giving readers the longest and the shortest, the most and the least, and the greatest and the smallest from the pages of the Bible. The lists range widely from theology and characters to wisdom and humor, including such subjects as:
- 33 contrasts between Christ and the antichrist
- 140 major Bible characters
- 59 titles of Christ
- 125 counseling helps from the Bible
- 5 major ways God reveals Himself
Scripture references accompany all lists, making the book not merely fascinating entertainment, but a valuable reference tool for Bible students, pastors, and teachers.
