In God We Trust by Steve Ham

in-god-we-trust Biblical faith is being undermined and criticized with an increasing fervor in schools, on job sites, and in the marketplace. Are you equipped to face the onslaught of secular, anti-Christian values and viewpoints? Can you clearly state why you believe in Christ and the authority of the Bible? How does this work in your daily life? In God We Trust is a guided journey that will help you:

• Identify the influence of the secular worldview and how it attempts to compromise the Word of God.
• Distinguish between genuine authority and the counterfeit authority of so many at present.
• Realize how your commitment to God’s authority will impact your church, family, and others for Christ.

Author Steve Ham, Director of Outreach at Answers in Genesis, clearly delves into the issues of faith and God’s authority in the life of the believer in order to prepare you to stand firm. An intriguing exploration of why man was never meant to rule himself, but instead to operate within an authoritative structure designed by God. Steve is co-author of Raising Godly Children in an Ungodly World, and the popular evangelism series, Answers for Life.

Heidi Says . . . I was excited when the offer came through to review this book.  I love listening to the author’s brother, Ken Ham, on the radio. There’s just something about that thick Australian accent that compels me to listen!  So, I was anxious to see what Steve had to say on this topic – one that i think very important. 

I haven’t yet had the time to read through the book in its entirety, but what I’ve read contains some very good information.  I was especially interested to read what Mr. Ham had to say on the topic of “Taking Back the Family: Authority and the Christian Family” in the chapter by the same title.  Most of what he had to say lined up pretty closely with my own beliefs, and it’s always nice to be affirmed. 

Another chapter that really said a lot to me was titled “I Want It Now: Authority in Christian Living”.  I appreciated Mr. Ham’s stance on this topic and the fact that he was not afraid to “tell it like it is”, even if it meant mentioning some big names in Christian media these days.  I won’t go into details (you’ll have to read the book) but, suffice to say, you should not always just believe every “Christian” author/speaker who comes along.  This life is not all about what we can get – which is hard to remember when living in the “now generation”. 

I’d recommend this book and think it’s worth reading.

NOTE: I received a free copy of this book from New Leaf Publishing Group in exchange for my honest thoughts on it.  I was not compensated in any other way.
