“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth...He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you.”
The Bible is not difficult to study. It is not full of contradictions, burdensome to understand, or unexciting. It does not require seminary training or Bible College to develop a firm grasp. In this, you will understand the book of Romans in the simplest possible language that can be managed without speaking it out loud.
· If you only read because you cannot avoid it
· If the Bible seems confusing in some places or difficult to understand
· If listening to unendingly varying interpretations has worn you out
This is what you’ve been waiting for; someone uninterested in anything but making what you read easy to understand. It aims to help believers understand why we believe what we believe and provides a thorough understanding of arguably the most important book of the New Testament. Written not for the scholarly but for the average Joe. Discover how easy it is to understand and trust the Written Word of God and embrace life’s journey home as a Christian.
Chuck O’Keefe is as “average Joe” as they come. He joined the Marines as a teen, learned a trade afterward, and worked hard all his life. He hated to read, pursued anything he thought would satisfy, and was the “captain of his own destiny” until it all came up empty.
After surrendering to Christ in 1990, his appetite for knowing the Scriptures led to Apologia Biblica, a Christian newsletter he has sent out for decades, occasional speaking engagements at churches and adult Sunday school classes, and now, at 64, his first book. Those who know or have heard him delight in his plain talk and easy-to-unravel explanations about what the Bible does and doesn’t say.
Today, he is still what he calls “a working class bum” and spends his leisure time with his wife Tess, adult daughter Serah, and anyone who wants to throw lead downrange. He still loves to shoot and plans to finally do some serious hunting when he retires in a few years.
