BTAL Cover

I wrote this booklet in response to the work God is doing at Flinders Uni through the ES group. This year (2013) we have, by His grace, seen a number of people come to faith in Jesus. It suddenly occurred to me that we (staffworkers and students leaders) are not readily prepared to disciple new believers in the context of ES.

Maybe we have not had enough confidence in the Gospel as God’s power to save?

I know the cover is not much to look at, but the booklet packs a punch – not because of my mediocre writing skills, because it is primarily pointing people to the Scriptures, so that the Word of God will speak for Himself.

The booklet can be downloaded for free via iTunes (iBook format – you will need to have iBooks installed on your iPad or Mac): Beginning the Authentic Life iBook

Or the PDF: Beginning the Authentic Life Ebook

I am still working on the Kindle version.

This resource may be downloaded and used freely, provided you do not change, remove or add to any of the content, you do not charge for it (except if you need to cover the cost of printing/photocopying), and you use it solely for the glory of God and the enrichment of His people. If you come across any typos or errors, please let me know.

If you would like to make a donation toward further development and publishing of this booklet, feel free to email me.

In 2012 I spoke at a conference on the theme, ‘The Word of God’.

Maybe because of our language and thinking for many of us this is synonymous with ‘The Bible’. However it is a phrase that is much, much richer than simply a volume of text. It means, ‘When God speaks He acts, and… God acts by speaking’ (Tim Meadowcroft).

The four talks are available as audio downloads below, along with the PDF here.

Talk One: God of the Word

Talk Two: Another God, another Word

Talk Three: The Word Who is God

Talk Four: Of God, the Word
