Not Far from the Dirt!
John Langston III searches the Scriptures to find answers to the question, "How can a believer avoid irreverent behavior before the holy God of Heaven?" These scriptural studies contained within this book should remind us that we have no room to boast of our spiritual maturity, and we are indeed, "Not far from the Dirt!" Almost since Adam was formed from the dirt, irreverent behavior towards God has been a catastrophic ongoing problem since sin entered the world. We live in the days where irreverent behavior is rampant towards God, sadly, sometime committed by believers in Christ. However, this book refreshes the truth for us that God is God and we are created beings, for His glory. Those who read this book will gain a deeper understanding of how important it is that we not offend the Holy God, who created us. Dr. John L. Langston III has been the president of TMA Ministries since its founding in 1982. This ministry has taken him to more than forty countries, sharing his talents as a missionary in practical service, evangelism, and Bible teaching. He is also the author of, "Speeding Beyond the Limit?" (published by Xulon Press), this is one in a series on Christian ethics for the last days. Currently, Dr. Langston continues teaching on the Minor Prophets and the Attributes of God as a visiting seminary professor in South India, Trinidad and Guyana, South America.
