Why isn't Easter on the same day every year? Where did the song "Kum Ba Yah" come from and what exactly does it mean? Why don't we know exactly how to pronounce God's name? What's the definition of those theological words like eschatology? hermeneutics? supralapsarianism? Can I join the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys? Who was St. Patrick and is it true he wasn't Irish? How is it that nearly every hotel room has a Gideon's Bible? Steve Wilkens offers answers and reflections on these and scores of other questions in this thoroughly instructional and often amusing almanac of things you should have learned in Sunday School, but somehow didn't. Also offered are quizzes on famous biblical phrases and definitions of theological terms. This volume is thoroughly instructional, and totally fun. A great gift! Market/Audience Gift buyers Humour readers Laypeople Endorsements "Almanacs are a wonderful American tradition. From Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac to The Farmer's Almanac, people have been able to count on them to provide useful information, helpful hints about everything under the sun and occasional heart-warming stories. Year after year, they enrich our lives. Dr. Steve's Almanac is not like that." GARY W. MOON, Ph.D., vice president and chair of integration, Psychological Studies Institute, and author of Falling for God "I kept telling his dad that lead-based paint wasn't a very good idea when we repainted his bedroom." DR. STEVE'S MOM Features and Benefits A great gift book Instructional Humourous Packaged in "bite-sized nibbles"
