Book Review By Margaret Lukasik

Many Christians are confused about how to follow scripture in their daily lives to become living examples of Jesus Christ. There are many confusing messages about how Christians are to act, speak and even feel, causing many to unknowingly follow man instead of God. However, with the Word as our beacon of light to follow, Christians can take heart as they take time to make scripture a lifestyle. However, we need leadership from those God has called to teach the Body Of Christ and guide them into successful Christian living.

The Christian Heritage - God's Answers for a Searching World offers just such leadership. It's written by Floyd Bland, a man who has grown up in a Christian home and who has dedicated his life to serving the Lord as pastor, teacher, ministry leader, prison chaplain, and administrator. This is a man who understands how to live the Word and to help others identify with Christ by becoming transformed in Him.

Too many Christians have felt lost after receiving their salvation because they were left to understand the scriptures on their own. Attending a few Bible studies doesn’t help to overcome the numerous problems new Christians face. I found The Christian Heritage a great source of guidance for new Christians, Christians new to the Word and for pastors and teachers to understand their responsibilities to God’s people. The book clearly and concisely organizes what believers need to know, where to study in the Bible, what God expects of us and how to attain our purpose in Him.

I enjoyed the relevant situations found at the end of each chapter to help Christians better understand what the chapter was about and how they can apply it to their own lifestyle. I found myself escaping to various scenarios from my past to see how I dealt with similar situations or how I would handle a situation I’ve never experienced. These "verbal pictures" make a person feel accountable to the Word of God. They also help Christians avoid becoming judgmental, but instead introspective about keeping the Word alive in their lives.

I give this book 10 stars, even though on most evaluation sites the maximum number is 5. The Christian Heritage by Floyd Bland is a "must read" for all Christians. It shares so many important Christian truths about behavior, attitudes and church leadership that I recommend it as a reference guide as well as a book of Christian growth. It’s 100% based upon scripture which is a must for me when I read books that discuss living the Word.

The author's writing is so compelling that you’ll want to read through to the end quickly to learn more about what he has to say, but many of the pages hold onto your heart and mind for a time before you can turn the page. As a Christian who has spent many years seeking God’s truth because my childhood church put a limit on what Christians need to know, I have nothing but praise for The Christian Heritage.  I would have found it an invaluable source of Christian growth and God's love for me so many years ago!
