You may have developed your own vision on Christian tenets and beliefs, convinced that you’re right (orthodox). In Seeing With Fresh Eyes Sin, Salvation, and the Steadfast Love of God, John W. Bullocks dares to let the Bible itself speak about the purpose of two creation stories and the cause and consequences of listening to a serpent in the Garden of Eden. Bullock continues to help you see with fresh eyes what Scriptures tell us about Cain and Abel, Noah, Moses, and Jesus Christ. Was it God who punished His Son? What was Christ anxious about in the Garden of Gethsemane? Why were there two cherubim in Jesus’ grave?
Is praying a sinner’s prayer enough to get saved? What does it mean to follow Christ? Whether you’re a freshman in Christianity or born and raised in a Christian family like I am, I bet that this book has many eye-openers and assists you in rediscovering the steadfast love of God, the true meaning of salvation, atonement, and being freed from sin. Discussion questions are listed at the end of the book. I’m thankful for the many pieces of food for further thought and Bible study.
About the author
Throughout John Bullock’s thirty-seven-year Air Force career, he and his family worshiped at a variety of churches—from fundamentalist to charismatic. Few answered the question that had plagued him for years: How, exactly, was I saved? Applying his analytical skills as a medical clinician and biomedical scientist, he set out to read the Bible with fresh eyes, letting it speak for itself, free of his presuppositions and discovered for himself the inner workings of the gospel and the beautiful intricacy of his salvation. John, who, among his other degrees, has a master’s in biblical studies, lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his wife. Seeing with Fresh Eyes is his debut book.
