E.M. Parke Review: "Authentic Christianity" By Gordon Haresign

I have recently completed reading Gordon Haresign's book 'Authentic Christianity' and found it to be a very well written, well researched, informative document, containing a wealth of information for students of the biblical book of Revelation.

Gordon Haresign writes in an easy to read, uncomplicated fashion, which assists in enabling the reader to read and understand the information provided without having to struggle to follow the line of thought.

The fact that Mr Haresign is quite an authority on his subject becomes evident the further the reader progresses through the book. He also presents as a writer espousing typical fundamental, protestant views which he has no difficulty in outlining for the reader.

Whilst this book is informative and educational in content, rather than being a story or novel, it is easily read and is capable of holding the attention of the reader throughout, because of the wealth of information that is presented.

From beginning to end, Mr Haresign maintains and steadfastly promotes fundamental, protestant Christian doctrine and manages to do this without any feeling for the reader of ideals being forced upon her or him. Such topics as repentance and holiness are features of Gordon Haresign's writing but never dominate the work. His aim in writing this book seems to be to present a well researched and spiritually insightful body of work for the benefit and edification of the Christian reader.

I would recommend this book to a Christian readership, genuinely interested in acquiring a depth of knowledge of the first several chapters of Revelation and eager to solidify their understanding of some of the fundamental doctrinal truths of protestant Christianity. Mr Haresign has produced an excellent piece of work into which he has poured many hours of study and research. It is well worth the time and effort to read it.

Living and Teaching Authentic Christianity
By Gordon Haresign

I was born on a mission station in what was then the Belgian Congo, and gained an early insight into African culture. At age five my parents moved to Johannesburg, South Africa, but three years later relocated to what was then Southern Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. At the time the country was less than 50 years old, but had rapidly developed a solid manufacturing, mining and agricultural base. I began my professional career with a major international accounting firm and then entered the corporate world as a senior executive. My career, however, was interrupted with military service; I was a commissioned army officer at a time when the face of Africa was rapidly changing due to communist expansion and the cry for freedom from colonial rule.
