Things I Never Learned in Sunday School: Facts about the Christian Faith That Will Surprise and Astound You

Overview

For many believers, the preferred approach to Christianity is passive; that is, they would prefer to let church leaders give them answers about their faith rather than engaging in an active pursuit on their own. As a result, traditional doctrines and beliefs are generally accepted without question. This was the path the author followed for over fifteen years. Surprisingly, it wasn't until she left Christianity that she began an in-depth study of the Christian faith.

Overview

For many believers, the preferred approach to Christianity is passive; that is, they would prefer to let church leaders give them answers about their faith rather than engaging in an active pursuit on their own. As a result, traditional doctrines and beliefs are generally accepted without question. This was the path the author followed for over fifteen years. Surprisingly, it wasn't until she left Christianity that she began an in-depth study of the Christian faith.

Things I Never Learned in Sunday School is the result of her efforts. With nearly 200 reference notes and numerous scripture quotations, she examines the infallibility of the bible, the resurrection, the existence of Satan, the fate of the unsaved, the Antichrist, the end times, even the identity of God. She also provides extensive insight into why Paul played such an important role in establishing Christianity. The final conclusion? Many doctrines taught in Sunday School and church often have little basis in fact - and several are not addressed at all.

Some readers may find the contents of this book unsettling. On the other hand, when read with an open and inquiring mind, it could very well result in a spiritual awakening.

Meet the Author

After spending over 15 years as a devoted, dedicated (and often fervent) Christian, the author became disillusioned with her faith and began a spiritual journey that eventually led to the writing of this book. Along the way, after extensive study and research, she discovered the importance of knowing what you believe and why. This is her first attempt to produce a literary work, but she has extensive writing experience as the former owner of a successful website copywriting business.
