I am very pleased to share this information regarding Samuel Martin’s 2nd book.
A New Book by Samuel Martin
This book has been 14 years in the making. Samuel Martin returns with his second volume in the series “Thy Rod and Thy Staff, They Comfort Me.”
This second book is a follow up to his first book ‘Thy Rod and Thy Staff, They Comfort Me: Christians and the Spanking Controversy.” (published in 2006)
That first book was not sold but was given away on numerous sites on the Web and continues to be available for free. (see www.biblechild.com)
A hard copy version is available. (see the author’s Amazon page)
This new book promises to be a welcomed addition to the series turning its attention to the New Testament book of Hebrews chapter 12:5-11, which is a key text quoted by many Christians today in their belief in corporal punishment. Samuel Martin further strengthens an already compelling case against corporal punishment in this new book.
Features off this new book are:
The Original Manuscript Order of Hebrews and Its Importance?
Who wrote Hebrews and why that is important?
If Paul wrote Hebrews, why did he not identify himself openly in the book?
What geographical region was Hebrews written to?
When was the book of Hebrews written?
What is the main subject of the book of Hebrews?
Who is the book of Hebrews relevant for today?
How does this survey of Hebrews link to our understanding of the debate concerning spanking children in the 21st century?
