OFF CENTER, OFF COURSE: When Good Doctrine Goes Bad

God intends that we see clearly on our road through the journey of life.  The Bible is a map and Jesus is light, but humans are inclined to get mixed up.  The book describes twenty detours and dead ends that begin with theological distortion and end in conflict and anxiety, depression, conflict, or other emotional chaos.  Such distortions are found in believers within every Christian tradition.  A theological problem cannot be solved with a psychological solution.  Based on biblical truths, it uses vivid stories based on real life cases to teach healing biblical truths. 

Error always causes distress.  Sometimes the problematic symptoms of anxiety, depression, or conflict in a relationship are the result of defective beliefs about Christianity.  The difficulty may arise because of bogus (heretical) theology.  Or it may arise because a truth is misunderstood or misapplied.  It happens a lot.  This book shows how correct biblical teaching and relationship with God, through Christ, bring joy and healing.

THE ODDSQUAD BLUNDERS: Worldview Errors That Will Blow Up Your Life

Understand the worldviews that compete for the minds of the world, and the blunders that lead people into them.  This book gets to the heart of important topics without unnecessary strange words from philosophy or theology.  It is "edutainment" that entertains as it teaches solid lessons that help you sort truth from nonsense.  Wacko characters show you the options: McKinley Forrester, who wants his waist size to equal his height; Redd Fyre with Coke sign colored hair; Halo Morningside, born to party; Bounteous Springforth, Spiritual Advisor to the Stars; Skurj DuBois (who only seems insane); Dark Fathoms, unemployed artist; Casio Nougat, crackpot poet; Clyde Gnarly, grumpy codger, and Bernadette Hernley, the Bag Lady from HeavenThis is a  humorous book about serious issues, presented in a way that encourages people to think about and discuss them.  It is easy to see how the ten blunders, expressed in everyday language, cause chaos in everyday life.  These blunders arise from defective worldviews.

The book deals with topics that are usually expressed in language suited for philosophers, but, instead, it uses comical characters who speak in plain language and whose behavior (sometimes very silly) teaches you why so many people today are confused.  You do not have to plow through archaic metaphysical terminology (like those three words) to get the message.  College-level concepts are described in language and stories that grade-school students can understand and enjoy.
