God has given man the Bible, yet the scriptures are debated with more vigor and less agreement today than in any previous generation. The resultant widespread error propagated by churches and cults has compelled the republication of this highly acclaimed title. One Book Rightly Divided addresses many difficult and confusing questions, such as: When did the New Testament begin? Some say immediately following Malachi (Matthew 1:1); others adamantly proclaim not until after Christ’s death (Hebrews 9:17). What happened to the souls of those in the Old Testament of whom it was said that God’s Spirit departed from them (1 Samuel 16:14; Psalm 51:11)? What is the purpose of water baptism? Some teach that water baptism brings salvation (Acts 2:38); others teach that water baptism simply illustrates salvation, while yet others teach that water baptism serves no purpose in the present age. When Christ returns to establish His Kingdom, will it be the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of Heaven? Some teach that one of these is physical and the other strictly spiritual (Luke 17:20; Romans 14:17), while others adamantly claim they are both the same (Matthew 19:23-24). What does the Bible mean when it refers to the blotting out of one’s name from the Book of Life (Revelation 3:5)? When are names recorded in the Book of Life? Since the Bible contains no contradictions, how does one reconcile For by grace are ye saved through faith … not of works … (Ephesians 2:8-9) with by works a man is justified and not by faith only (James 2:24)? Can both be true? Did Peter and Paul write two different gospels to the same group, one teaching the loss of salvation and the other teaching salvation by grace with eternal security (2 Peter 3:15-16)? The answers to these important questions serve as the tip of the iceberg with which the reader will become familiar in this work. In fact, One Book Rightly Divided, with its 6,745 Bible references, will enable the diligent student to answer the critic and solve his own personal uncertainties concerning difficult passages from God’s word.
