The Basics of the Bible Klause Series
One of the popular new Christian books on sale at bookstores around the country is the Bible Klause, by Elder Dallin H. Oaks and Elder Quentin L. Cook. This is a series of Christian themed e-books designed to assist a Christian in developing personal righteousness and faith. The Bible Klause series consists of nine titles, and many new Christian and non-Christian people alike have been purchasing these books.
There are some characteristics of the Bible Klause series that make it stand out from other Christian e-books. While the majority of e-books are written for the purpose of providing the reader with biblical information, the Bible Klause series provides a framework for the Christian and the non-Christian reader to discuss their faith together.
The first characteristic of the Bible Klause series is the fact that all nine books in the series are written for the purpose of evangelism. The authors wrote each book in a manner that was geared towards providing the reader with a direct correlation between their faith and their reading of the Bible. In this way, they are helping the reader to develop the core faith, while they help to encourage the reader to read the Bible. The use of this style of writing can be found throughout the Bible Klause series, but there are a few significant differences between the books.
The first difference that can be found in the books written by the Bible Klause authors is that most of the books written by the authors in this series discuss God in ways that are unique. While the Bible has always had reference to God as the creator of the universe, the authors provide us with an explanation of God’s role in a less direct fashion. Instead of explaining to us what God created, the authors provide us with a theology that can be applied to our own life.
The second difference is found in the number of subjects covered by the Bible Klause authors. While most of the books in the series cover the core aspects of Christianity, there are still several books within the series that cover a wide variety of topics. Books such as Acts of Faith cover subjects such as God’s sacrifice on the cross, His work in Israel, His work on the cross, and His work in heaven. However, these books don’t only touch on Bible doctrines; they also include discussion on subjects such as the destiny of mankind, the progression of the Christian faith, and even how to keep a Christian lifestyle.
Some of the topics that are discussed in the books are taken directly from the New Testament. For example, in Acts of Faith, the author states that the first Christian gave his life to Christ, for God’s sake. As a result, the author believes that the life he gave his life to Christ was a sacrifice that deserves to be honored. In this way, the books also contain strong applications for our current situation.
While the Bible Klause authors have come up with an interesting method for teaching faith and worship, I am not sure that it will ever find a place among the Christian community. While the method is unique, it is not necessarily a part of the Christian community. Additionally, many of the subjects discussed in the books are similar to those discussed in church, so you are not likely to find an original application for these topics when you go to church.
The Bible Klause authors claim that their goal is to provide Christians with a means of connecting with one another on a more personal level. While I have not been successful in reaching the innermost depths of my heart with this method, I know that it will be available for Christian readers who wish to discuss their faith with others.
