Jacobs, Jarrod M. The Bible Has The Answer! (published in 2018 by Jacobs Publications, Morgantown, KY 42261). This is intended as a Bible study text and workbook that is geared toward young people in high school or college but would also be beneficial for adults to study. Author Jarrod M. Jacobs has been a gospel preacher since 1991 and is a good friend. I have heard him speak on several occasions, and we have even camped together. In his introduction he writes, “This book is the result of questions that were asked of me by young people just like you. I was to teach a high school Bible class, and before I began, I asked the young people what questions they had and/or what topics they might be interested in learning. Their answers gave rise to this material.” It would be a useful tool for church Bible classes, home studies, and personal development. There are ten chapters that cover thirteen common religious questions in a way that is direct and to the point.
The topics are as follows: Where Do You Go When You Die? What Will Happen When Jesus Returns? How Can A Loving God Allow Destruction, Starvation, Cruelty, Etc.? Is The Holy Spirit Still With Us Today? Does The Bible Teach “Once-Saved-Always-Saved”? Does The Existence Of Dinosaurs Contradict The Bible? Can People Perform Miracles Today? Why Are There So Many Churches Today? Who Are The “Great Cloud Of Witnesses”? Why Does God Not Speak Directly To Man Anymore? What Happened To Demons? What Makes Joseph Smith Different From The Writers Of The Bible? How Can We Condemn Others’ Religious Behavior When They Seem Genuine? Each lesson has questions to answer and assumes that the Bible as the final authority in doctrinal matters (2 Tim. 3:16-17). A teacher’s edition which has the answers filled out is also available.
