of God is a mystery to all of those who don't know God personally, as well as to many who claim to know Him, but who read
the Word with their human understanding, instead of being taught by the Holy
Spirit. God inspired the writers of the Scriptures, and He alone
will reveal the true meaning of it to those who diligently seek Him.
The author of this book—my wife—seeks the Lord
with all her heart, mind, soul, and strength. This book is the result of
her many hours and years of reading, studying, meditating, praying and listening to
God with her heart.
It really started when two people came together—an
ex-Catholic and an atheist. My wife was the atheist. We both found love, and
not just love for each other, but the True Love—Jesus Christ. He taught us
what love is all about—from His perspective.
This didn’t happen overnight. As
brand new Christians, we attended several different churches and Christian
gatherings, while we buried ourselves in the Bible at home. What we consider
a true blessing is that we were able to get away for a few years—away from
the “world,” from religion and people’s interpretations of the Scripture.
This enabled us to give God full attention.
We spent hours
and years studying the Bible, pondering it
and discussing it. As I watched my wife Sonia study, she took notes, and
more notes. This happened year after year. Eight years into the study, she
started to put Scripture verses under different topic headings. By then, the
“notebook” was four inches thick—hundreds of handwritten pages. My wife
is not a slacker by any means, and she is very determined when she sets her
mind to do something.
She did her studying with determination from God. I should mention that she
was born and raised in Prague (formerly Czechoslovakia now the Czech Republic). When she came to America, she
couldn’t speak a word of English. A few years later, she was reading the
Bible in two languages and three or more translations at a time. She did all
that thinking it was only for her personal study.
But God had a different
plan. Many times she would ask me “What is it the Lord wants me to do?” And
then one day she knew! “I have so much to share with others,” she said. This
was four years ago.
Sonia took all the handwritten verses and notes
and assembled them. Eventually, the individual chapters of this book started coming to
life. Being away from “civilization,” she wrote the entire book by hand.
Then last year she typed it into a computer, while learning Microsoft Word,
English grammar, writing style, and editing. This book is a true labor of
love. Glory to God!
What I really love about this book, which I have
read many times, is that each chapter stands alone, is complete in
its content, is backed up by Scripture, and even a child can understand. I
love the simplicity of the way my wife put it all together—the clarity of
Jesus’ teaching how to live by His Word, and the practicality of it all. In
other words: The teaching of Jesus is simple, clear, and practical. I
believe these books will give you the true answers for all facets of your
Use it for your
personal or group study of the Word of God.
I highly recommend
both books as God inspired books that everyone should read.
