Theology 101 in Bite-Size Pieces offers a bird’s eye view of the riches of God’s Divine Grace and what the finished work of Christ means to the world. It takes a fresh approach to scripturally based answers to thought provoking questions such as predestination; who are the chosen; the called, and the elect. The author uses everyday language to explain what it means to be justified, reconciled, and forgiven and does so in bite-size portions.
Judy gives an overview of the book:
What is this thing that everyone calls “love?” Is it an emotion? Is it a commitment? Is it a phenomenon? Is it an ideal created by mankind? Does it exist at all, or is it only in our minds? Is it a hope, a dream, or a wish, or is it just a word in the dictionary? Is it God? Is there a God? Is it the energy in the universe? Do plants and animals seek it or is it only humanity who hungers for it. Some say that the only way to enter the kingdom of heaven is through love. Could this be true? How can we prove there is even a kingdom of heaven? Do we make our own kingdom of heaven on earth through love or is the kingdom of heaven simply the absence of hell and hell the absence of love? Is hell broken dreams, broken vows, broken hearts and broken wings? Are we meant to know love in its fullest or are we all born broken souls crippled from birth and sent here for repair?
What is it about this little four-letter word that stirs up such extreme emotions, and creates so many songs and movies in every imaginable language, that universally touches the human heart in such a way that it makes each and every one of us hunger for it? What is it about this little four-letter word that holds such power that it makes one capable of making the impossible become possible? What is it about this word that the very utterance of it, or lack thereof, creates such unimaginable atrocities and yet can move one’s heart to the other extreme and create such peace, joy, and harmony that fill one’s spirit so full that it makes us feel as though we can no longer stand the fullness of the joy? Are we even capable of knowing and feeling the fullness of the true nature of love? What is it about this little powerful word that is at the very foundation of all existence and has the power either to make us or to break us? These are the questions that some of the greatest philosophers in history have attempted to answer over the centuries, and we are still asking these very same questions today; still searching and yearning for this elusive ideology.
