Imagine the Bible as the Spirit's powerful Sword. What if this Sword could only be drawn by those with good intentions, ears to hear, and a heart to love?
What if people learned to handle this Sword to cut away barriers between us instead of cutting away people?
This book provides 104 flashcards with various understandings of biblical passages. Sword cards thrust a case for one stance while shield cards deflect with an alternate perspective.
