Publisher's Description

Every group is a medley of unique individuals that share a common interest. As the group forms, meets, practices, and develops their identity and skills,
certain words (like nicknames) are made up, that allow for the common identi?cation of certain things that are important to the group. As a result, a
group-speci?c jargon is developed.<p>

In, for example, a surfing group, learning Surferese becomes part of the initiation process. Mastering the group-specific jargon provides the newer
member a feeling of accomplishment and pride. When outsiders overhear you, they may now be able to identify you as one of those Surfers. Being identi?ed
provides you with confirmation that your efforts have not been in vain. <p>

But Christianity is not a hobby or a club. Your eternal destiny is changed for the better by joining and continuing. For this reason, at this critical
juncture, no new believer in Christ should be driven away or alienated by some human-made jargon. So, in <i>A Handbook for New Christian Believers:
Including the Glossary of Christianese</i>, the new believer is supplied with a listing of most of the jargon words and their detailed de?nitions.

This may be the ?rst time such a listing with de?nitions has been provided, so please take advantage and familiarize yourself with this handbook and the
glossary. You will acquire the knowledge you need to quickly enable and ease the process of (1) getting to know your God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and (2)
?tting in with the members of your church

Author/Artist Review

Author: James Alwyn Austin
Located in: Lompoc, CA
Submitted: February 27, 2015

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a full-time engineer for Lockheed-Martin. I attend Pacific Christian Center Church in Santa Maria, CA. This is my first book. I and my wife have 3 grown boys and 8 grandchildren.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I found the jargon of Christianity to be a mild source of confusion. So I waded through it and learned what it all meant. It might be that even one person was turned away because of this confusion. My motivation was to keep anyone from being driven away or alienated from Christianity due to the jargon issue.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  An easy/easier transition into Christianity.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  A young girl who was afflicted by a rare form of cancer was miraculously healed of that cancer, and I may have had a hand in keeping her spirits up during the Chemo, etc.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Max Lucado, Jack Hayford and Chuck Smith to name a few.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  A key to relationships is forgivness.
