Kansas City, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2014 -- As Alan R. Noble knows, with a personal relationship with God, comes responsibilities – responsibilities that can sometimes prove to be too much for young minds and souls.
In his new book, ‘Climbing for Roots: Christian Foundations for Young Believers”, Noble constructs the concrete foundation on which the youths’ belief can stand and grow for years to come. Covering topics ranging from living as a Christian to every-day choices, temptations, the miracle of salvation and the power of God, Noble approaches the doctrines of the Christian faith from a young perspective. In doing so, Noble manages to get to the heart of what it means to be young in this world, and believe in God.
“Our teenagers are faced with so many harmful presences in their environments,” says Noble. “Each day, they walk through the Earth and are reminded of the temptations – of the flesh and the devil and of their basic surroundings. It is our responsibility as leaders to nurture their Christian faith in order to equip them with the knowledge they require to be confident in their beliefs and in their abiding faith in the Almighty.”
How deep do your foundations go? When an army goes off to war, it brings with it the most advanced armaments available. Every soldier knows that without being well armed he is useless in the field of battle. We know that as Christians we are in a battle (Eph. 6:10-18), and our young people need to be equipped to enter the fray. They may have trusted Jesus for salvation, but do they have the armor of God-the foundational biblical truths that can withstand the attacks of pagan scholarship?
Climbing for Roots has been carefully researched to provide a fresh presentation of the basic doctrines of Christian faith. Written for young Christians in easily understood text, the book discusses sin and salvation, moves on to explain relationships and responsibilities for the believer, and concludes with instruction on Christ and the Church.
Climbing for Roots is an effective tool that can make a real difference in the lives of new believers.
Meticiulously researched, ‘Climbing for Roots’ has been a labor of love for Noble. “I believe in the army of the Cross,” says the author.
Continuing: “When a person trusts Jesus for salvation he is enjoined to that army. It’s true that every Christian is in a battle. It is my belief that without armaments, Christians cannot influence for good – they are powerless. When we teach our youth about the foundational Biblical truths, we arm them with what they need to withstand the attacks of pagan scholarship. This is my calling – and I am so blessed to have found it.”
‘Climbing for Roots: Christian Foundations for Young Believers’ is available here, or may be ordered from your local bookstore.
