Sweeter than Honey is written to enable the reader get deep into the New Testament of the Holy Bible.
It is aimed at taking the reader through the New Testament in various ways as evidenced in the nine chapters. The reader is expected to attempt supplying the answer(s) before looking them up in the answer section. It is recommended for Bible students of all levels, the young, the old, generally Christians and non-Christians alike who wish to taste the honey- like nature of the Word.
In my ministerial work in the Para church, the church and with students of secondary and tertiary institutions in West Africa, I observed a peripheral knowledge of the Word. In contrast, my interaction with people of other faiths revealed that they handle their scriptures with more seriousness and zeal in order to transmit same to subsequent generations. This became a burden to me and has led to the compilation of this book. I believe this book will not only be handy, easy to understand but also attractive and bring the reader into God’s very presence and grace through its realities.
The Fill in the Gap section is meant to provide ready answers to some rhetoric questions often asked by some preachers. The True or False section and the Direct Questions are prepared to stimulate the reader into deeper meditation with an intention to analyzing and synthesizing the concerned scripture. Characteristics of people and places are meant to supply the reader with first hand tips about the character or place concerned. This can be a useful tool for both personal and group devotions. The importance of reciting scripture needs no over emphasis. Jesus defeated Satan through the Word (Luke 4:3-12). This section is meant for equipping the reader especially in our generation when scripture reading and recitation is waning in popularity among believers. Location and fulfillment of Messianic prophecies as found in the New Testament is also included just as the parables of Jesus Christ and their locations are here to equip the reader on the number and nature of Jesus’ parables written in the New Testament.
I strongly uphold that the compilation and setting out of the elements of this book in such a simple manner which though not exhaustive but adequate, will draw many to Christ, have meaningful devotion and meditation as well as obtain skeletal information for sermon preparations and or general Bible Study from the New Testament.
