About the Book

This book contains illuminating core Scriptures with plain and yet vital messages that shed light upon our personal and cultural crises and the solutions to overcome them. These Scriptures were reverently selected to sharpen and simplify the core messages of the Bible that are relevant for our understanding and deliverance from our precarious human predicament. Relevant themes and subjects were selected and guidance of the Holy Spirit supplied the spiritual prescriptions.

This book represents precious diamonds and golden nuggets from the inexhaustible riches of the revealed Word of God. It is not necessary to dig and search for these invaluable treasures. The message is so plain that "he that runs can read it." The major themes, such as spiritual illness, spiritual guidance, rewards, salvation and deliverance, are simplified and profoundly disclosed from the contextual wrappings and exegetical interpretations.

Each page of this book, expressed in few words, contains a significant core message of spiritual knowledge, understanding and enlightenment. Each page and each framed Scriptural expression are designed for continuous study, nurture, display, and publication throughout our social and physical environment. The selection and concentration of these precious Words of God makes for potent spiritual prescriptions for our personal lives and cultural crisis.

Webb was born in Macon County, Alabama, where he graduated from Tuskegee Institute High School as the president of his senior class, on the campus where Booker T. Washington founded Tuskegee Institute in 1881. He graduated from Morehouse College as the most outstanding student in religion. He was licensed and ordained to preach at Macedonia Baptist Church, his home church in Notasulga, Alabama. While in Atlanta, Georgia, he served over twenty years as assistant pastor and later as interim pastor of the historic Wheat Street Baptist Church. He is the founder and pastor of Foundation Baptist Church in Atlanta.

The author is currently an adjunct professor of theology at the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) through its Continuing Education Program. Through the Certificate in Theology Program at ITC, Webb hopes to provide theological exposure to many pastors, ministers, and lay persons who for various reasons do not go to seminary, but can benefit significantly from education in theology.

The author is convinced by his long years of intense life experiences and top level academic and professional exposures that ONLY THE WORD OF GOD IS SUFFICIENT TO SAVE HUMANITY AND HUMAN CULTURE FROM SELF-DESTRUCTION. This book is designed to make God’s Word plain and to stimulate true religion, art and science in making the Word of God a concrete reality in the social and physical environment, human culture, human hearts, minds and spirits.
