The aim of this book is to guide Christians, who have unanswered questions about their fundamental beliefs and feel logically offended by some of them, to find the truth from the Bible itself and set themselves free from spiritually harmful Dogma.
The author maintains that, since the Bible is a book written by men, it is not God inspired in its entirety. Therefore she does not call the whole Bible “God’s word” or holy. In fact, there are many profoundly unholy narratives there. The student of the Old and the New Testament, who is thirsty for spiritual truth, has the responsibility to prayerfully and fearlessly separate the “meat” of the Scriptures from the “bones” therein.
In this book Maria Seferou addresses the main issues of Christian theology. By quoting scriptures from different writers of the Bible for each particular issue (God, Christ, man, devil, salvation, prophecy, etc.) and commenting on them, the author endeavors to help the readers reevaluate for themselves the basic doctrines of Christianity and find the courage to discard the false of them, in order to be able to grow into personal Christhood.

Just before the age of 40 she started searching for God and deeper meaning in her life. Consequently, she joined the local Charismatic Church in Harrow Middlesex, England, where slowly but steadily she experienced an inner transformation that completely changed her personality and outlook on life. Gradually she was feeling the desire to return to Greece. It took her two more years to find the courage to give up her job and step by faith into the unknown. She returned to Greece at the end of 1984, and in 1985 she had already published her first book. Ever since she has written several more books on Christian, social, economic, political and philosophical issues, which are available on her blog: http://seferou-ebooks.blogspot.gr/ When her country started falling into a deep economic and humanitarian crisis, about the end of 2007, she felt the need and the duty for more direct and immediate communication with her fellow Greeks. So she set up another blog where she uploads articles on hot issues of the day, trying, as it were, to expose the roots of the problems and suggest common sense solutions, being aware, though, that she is but another voice in the wilderness…
