More About God, the World, and Me - A Look at Diverse Views of Scripture from the Bible by III MD Clemmie Palmer
Have you wondered what other people from various backgrounds and cultures think about such topics as salvation? Redemption? The Lord's Supper and its real purpose? Clemmie Palmer, III, MD has written an easy-to-read, entertaining book for both the layperson and the seminarian looking for a quick view on some of the major topics covered in seminary and the Bible. Clemmie wrote: "The emphasis here is on salvation, redemption, sin, apocalyptic literature, as well as the Lord's Supper and its purpose." A collection of teachings culled from Clemmie's experiences studying both various version of scripture and well-known authors on the topics, and most notably during his education at Hood Theological Seminary, this volume will challenge your thinking on some principles and likely cement your views on others. He intends to inspire readers to survey their paradigms in relation to others', and in the process, find a more fulfilling place with their own thoughts and education. It is the goal of the author to motivate the reader to think outside the box and understand that a diversity of views can enrich one's perspective on scripture, the Bible, the Gospels, the mission of Jesus Christ, His atonement, and other gospel topics. Such study and introspection of thought should be encouraged. The author also explains his and others' views on various changes in cultural norms from the early American claims of witchcraft in the church in the 1600's to today's issue on homosexuality and the church. The text of this book is written in an engaging manner with major emphasis being placed on dialogue between groups to add interest as well as clarity the points being made. Major topics within the group dialogues are salvation, atonement, forgiveness, sin and evil, and the Lord's Supper. The author draws heavily on his religious experiences delving into various schools of thought regarding these topics. Each chapter ends with a set of chapter endnotes illustrating for the reader the research the author accomplished to confirm the diverse views of theology he describes. A significant portion of his work is backed up by ideas and quotes recorded by C. S. Lewis, a favorite of Christians the world over. Review: As a Christian myself, it has been a joy to work with Clemmie on this book. His message and writing are clear, often entertaining, and as I read each word, I was moved to a clearer understanding of my own perceptions and feelings of the Gospels and my gratitude for the atonement offered each of us through Christ. Clemmie's favorite scripture says it all: 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NLT) For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. I hope readers will find the same solace and clarity of thought in reading this book as I did. It is an honor to publish it. -Jan Myers, LJM Publishing, LLC Reading diverse theological views in an entertaining way allows the reader to focus on their own beliefs in comparison to how others see those same principles and occurrences.
