The greatest problem in today’s Christian church is a lack of biblical and doctrinal teaching. Yet, forty-plus years teaching in local churches has taught me most Christians just want to sit with someone, ask questions about the Bible, and get reasonable, accurate, and understandable answers. In today’s world of short attention spans, forgotten text messages, and blogs that are here today, lost in bytes and pieces tomorrow, the essay may seem an old fashioned way to communicate vital truths to the media generation. But it works.
As with the first volume of Biblical Essays, the ninety-seven essays in volume II are the end result of a year’s worth of posts on doctrinally conservative social media groups. They’ve provoked sharing, discussion, and occasionally controversy. The essays explain the Bible, Calvinism, Dispensationalism, sin, salvation, the Savior, other aspects of theology and doctrine, and especially the art and science of hermeneutics (interpretation). If you have wanted to sit and discuss the Bible with someone, sit and talk with me for a bit. Most of these essays are between 1,000 to 1,500 words, a lunch-time read. Here is bread, meat, and drink for those hungry and thirsty to understand the spiritual things of the Word of God.

About the Author
James D. Quiggle holds Master's degrees in religion and theology and has been teaching and writing about the Bible for over forty years. He became a Christian in 1974, Mr. Quiggle believes Biblical truth has the intrinsic power to produce positive change. The mature Believer uses the Bible to make informed decisions about his or her faith. “The intent of every book I write,” he said, “is to help the reader validate the truth by checking out the facts. It is also my hope that my books will be used by local church teachers as source material for their ministries.” Mr. Quiggle's goal is to teach the Bible so that others may decide for themselves what the Bible has to say about their faith and life.
