NOT ALL ROADS LEAD TO HEAVEN by Robert Jeffress

This may be an unpopular post because the subtitle of this book is,”Sharing an Exclusive Jesus in an Inclusive World,” and our world today, more than ever in history is just that, “inclusive.”

The author makes a strong case that Jesus is THE way, THE truth, and THE life, and then deals masterfully  with the questions and “what abouts” that result from that statement.

For the Christian who is a thinking Christian and deals daily with some of the questions dealt with, this book is a Godsend. Starting with the shocking statistic that 60 % of American evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life, the author negates such a belief. There is ample scriptural evidence from the Old Testament, the New Testament, words straight from the mouth of Christ, and from New Testament writers, specifically Paul, the well educated, thinking, reasoning apostle.

The author deals with the knotty questions that we all have been asked when we offer Christ as the exclusive way to heaven, and warns about shoving our belief, unlovingly, down the throats of others who disagree with us. He uses reason and intelligent research to point out his message, wanting us to love others like Jesus did, but to remain steadfast in believing in Christ as the one and only way to heaven.  After all, we call ourselves “Christ-ians”, don’t we?

This year, I will have been a member of AAUW (American Association of University Women) for fifty years, a life time member (which means my fellow AAUW members will begin to pay my annual dues. (ha ha) In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015 and went on from there (See "Introduction",first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I am currently teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This makes my 27th year there after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
