Yesterday I discovered a treat in my mailbox: a copy of Ron Benrey’s The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Christian Mysteries. No, this is not a book on how to write a Christian mystery, but a book on how to learn about some puzzling Scriptures and ancient beliefs involved in the Christian faith . . . like the Trinity. How can one God be comprised of three distinct persons?
Other topics Ron covers are the incarnation and the atonement, the virgin birth, Jesus’ dual nature, the healings and miracles of Christ, the unforgivable sin, and the existence of pain in the world–how can a good God allow suffering?
I was honored to serve as a “technical editor” on this project, meaning that I read–and enjoyed–every word. I found much to ponder and praise within these pages. Ron has a deliciously wry sense of humor and he writes very simply of complex ideas. I promise you’ll enjoy this book, and it will help you learn how to defend and explain your faith to others.
