Francis Schaeffer wrote this book for a friend of his who was an atheist. There’s 25 chapters and they’re each about 2 or 3 pages long (ridiculously short). Schaeffer was writing a book for a friend who simply wanted to know what the Bible teaches. And he wrote these 25 Bible Studies as an overview of all of biblical theology. It starts with God and who He is and then Creation. And then moves on to Jesus and how all of that affects us. And finally he talks about how things will look when Christ ...more

4 estrelas para o "25 estudos bíblicos" e 5 estrelas para o " Dois conteúdos, Duas realidades".

Reads like a commentated statement of faith. It is very systematic with a logical flow, but simple and refreshing. Schaeffer is a clear-cut and genuine believer with a heart to see others transformed holistically by the blood of Christ. He pleads the case for intellectual assent and honesty to right doctrine and the questions of life, while urging the application of truth both in our love for God and in the beauty of relationships.

This is an excellent reference book to help you learn more about the Bible and what it says about certain topics. I wouldn't recommend it for small groups based purely on discussions but I would recommend it for self-study and memorizing verses.

Not really meant to be just read through, but rather to be used alongside regular Bible reading. Thus it gets three stars for how I read it, but four or five for its intended purpose.

Helpful book to use among friends to study the Bible. Simply ask, "What does this verse have to do with this doctrine?" Great for discussion.

Two Contents, Two Realities is a fabulous read.

A good systematic Bible study through many of the key topics of the Christian faith. I still recommend it to others to help them grow in their faith.
