“In a time when biblical literacy is waning and values are less than absolute, Authentic Christianity is a helpful and needful book for today’s church. Consisting of thirty chapters, a conclusion, a bibliography, and indexes, it moves through the first Epistle of John segment by segment, mining biblical guidelines and blessings at every corner” (Ben Aker, PhD, professor emeritus of New Testament and exegesis, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary).
“I want this book in the hands of every one of my students and ministry leaders. The church is at a crossroads wherein we are teetering along a slippery slope that has ensnared a generation with a gospel unlike that preached by Christ and his disciples” (Pastor Troy D. Bohn, director of Raven Ministries International Training Center).
“I highly recommend Dr. Richard Tow’s Authentic Christianity for pastors and anyone serious about studying 1 John in a deeper way. Dr. Tow presents practical ideas and lessons for how twenty-first-century Christians can protect our hearts and minds against modern-day false teachings, how to sincerely and biblically live our lives with love and a clear conscience” (Dr. Donald W. Eubank, chaplain; retired lieutenant colonel, US Army; endorsing agent, military VA chaplains; Foursquare Gospel Church).
“This book should be required reading for anyone in ministry. The church is slowly apostatizing due to its ignorance of what constitutes a genuine biblical believer. John’s epistle, more than any other New Testament book, differentiates between the true child of God and those who are merely claiming to be one. John’s bottom line is ‘These things I have written . . . in order that you may know that you have eternal life.’ Find out what John means by ‘know.’ It’s a matter of life or death” (David Ravenhill, author and itinerant teacher, Siloam Springs, Arkansas).
