Embracing God In The Right Perspective With The Right Foundation of Faith In Him, by Chris Tham is a faith-based non-fiction treatise. Tham has written an extensively researched book, a religiously oriented discourse that reveals his spiritual insights. His stated intention for his research and subsequent writing is for the reader to discover his own true identity in the spiritual realm and how this identity relates to an understanding of who God is. He does not cast aspersions on any other religions, teachings, or practices, but references are made to compare beliefs between and among Christians, Jews, Muslims, etc.

Some of the author’s insights may seem unconventional, but they are based on his study and knowledge of the scriptures. His interpretations of biblical passages are his own. He is able to express complex abstract spiritual concepts that have caused nations to battle and have triggered times of  “countless and senseless innocent bloodshed upon mankind.”

By following a Biblical timeline from Genesis in the Old Testament through the books of history and then the New Testament with the life of Christ and his ministry, and concluding with the book of Revelations, the author presents the Gospel with additional historical detail. Through the Biblical accounts of Moses, Noah, and others, the reader’s life choices are related to the trials of historical ancestors. Emphasis is placed on the two characters of man. The spiritual and the physical.

In educating the reader on the meaning of spirituality, the author emphasizes that “knowledge without God is not the truth.” Intellectual and spiritual wisdom are discussed in detail concerning man’s understanding of God. The question, “Who is God”? “Who are you?”  and “Who is the Devil?” are answered but raise additional questions about life. His Option theory is presented as a way a person chooses to live his life with an understanding of who God is. Our lives are a mix of spiritual and physical, with the choice of living now with an emphasis on one or the other. The book entails many examples of intellectual (physical) and/or spiritual wisdom (choices) in our lives.

Many of his ideas may be unconventional or controversial and not accepted by other religious authorities, however, his ideas are worth reading for contemplation and study. Readers will be challenged to further research the interrelated ties between and among religions, such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. A new perspective on end-times prophesies challenges mainstream thinking.

Whether the reader agrees with the author’s ideas or not, he will be encouraged to study the Bible himself. Just start reading Chris Tham’s book alongside your Bible and see what God has to say about Himself and your spiritual being.
