Overview

This book is intended to be used as a study manual. The fifty passages were pulled out from the New Testament because of their value as training/study tools. The "Biblical Food for Thought" and "Topics of Discussion" were added for the same reason.

Then, the Book of Mark was added for a special reason. Many, many hours were invested on Mark 16:18 over a two-year period. But the finished product was worth every one of those many hours. This verse is discussed at great length in "Topics of Discussion."

It is our prayer that reading and studying this book is a learning experience for everyone who will read and study it.

About the Author

Brady R. Downing’s poetic career began in 1965 with a poem/song entitled “A Soldier’s Prayer.” After that Brady wrote several poems and songs. Then in 1982 his biblical poetic career began. While coteaching a Sunday school class of fifth and sixth graders with friend Mary Hale, they started using what they called “Poetic Riddles” as a teaching tool. Each week Brady would write several poems about a Bible personality or something that happened in the Bible and let the class members figure out who or what it was about. When they couldn’t get the answers soon, they would give them the scriptural references to use and find the answer, thereby teaching them the “Look it up” technique. (Then they went home and stumped their parents.)
Later, Brady felt led to write a poem translation of the Book of Exodus. He wrote other Bible-related poems over the next few years. Then, in July 1997, the Lord, working through a friend, gave him the assignment of writing this book.
