to studies, confirmed by general experience, only 1 in 10 Christians
believe the Bible is absolute truth. Consequently, the whole Word of God
is simply not being taught like it should. The results are that the
church does not look much different than the world with all of its
problems. We need to forsake ‘seeker friendly’ and ‘spiritual but not
religious’ teachings and consume His body and blood, which is the whole
of the Word. ‘Whole Bible Christianity’ presents an alternative
rediscovered from the Word which takes the reader back to one God, one
Lord, one Body, and one Faith. People who wear His name need to repent
and return to the Word as absolute truth, read it, and heed it.
Including and especially, what is known as The Law.

"Whole Bible Christianity is a
wonderfully refreshing down to earth description of our Christian faith
right where the rubber meets the road. I commend it for all who want to
have an enjoyable time thinking through what the Word of God has to say
on a multitude of everyday topics. It is strong on the Word and that is
what we need to end the famine of the Word of God in our times." Dr.
Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.
Freedom. Identity. Touching God. Fruit of the Spirit. Peace. Freedom
will come when you realize that all of the Word is yours. God’s Word in
your life will set boundaries which promote safety and security, while
acting also as defenses against those who would make you give up His
blessings. If you want to rest on Saturday as God commanded, you can do
it and no one using church tradition or philosophies of men can take it
from you. This is the true meaning of Colossians 2:16.
identity as a child in God’s household will be plain and rock solid,
whether you go to a church or not. No one will be able to tell you that
if you don't go to church, or their church, you are not in the body of
Christ. If you can't attend, because they won't let you due to your
insistence on following the Word, or because of their hypocrisy, you can
still enjoy intimacy with your Father and Messiah. Every time you choose
not to eat pork or shellfish, you reinforce your identity as His son or
daughter. Your identity is not tied up in a church or in Judaism, but in
As you weave each of His commands into the fabric of your
life the threads of intimacy between you and your Father will be many
and real and ever stronger. Touching God, and God touching you, will be
a daily occurrence. Fruit of the Spirit follows a whole Bible way of
life, naturally popping out all over, because His Word resides in your
new heart of flesh. The proof is in your pursuit of His ways. The end
result of all this will be the peace of the presence of God. He is where
His Word is; where people are worshiping Him in Spirit and truth.
Whole Bible Christianity simplifies walking with God and producing
the fruit of the Spirit. It will strengthen faith with the best
discipleship system ever devised, which is God’s Living Oracle. Bruce
shows how to easily connect with God in more intimate ways on a
minute-by-minute basis, simply by trading all of His heart for all of
yours. Whole Bible Christianity clears up the cracked picture of God and
His Word by showing the unity of the Bible message, with over 700 verses
directly quoted along with keys to understanding and walking the Word as
Searching people will want this book because it is in contrast to
unsatisfying modern church teachings. There are lots of people (George
Barna estimated 20 million at one point) who are Christians but do
not go to church. They’re turned off by hypocritical soft-soaped seeker
friendly social justice teachings contrary to the Bible. They’re hungry
and thirsty and wandering in a desert of ear-tickling messages. They are
looking for the real thing. ‘Whole Bible Christianity’ will reassure
them that the Bible is the real thing, and all they have to do is read
it and do it.
In an age when the constant hammering on the authority and absolute
truth of God’s Word has become deafening,
‘Whole Bible Christianity’
takes a stand against the ‘spiritual but not religious’ teachings
current in the church, and decries the false idea of ‘social justice’
that is replacing biblical truth for many. Bruce advocates reading and
heeding the whole of the Word as the body and blood of Jesus, including
the Law with its feasts and helps for daily living.
Bruce Scott Bertram, rebel without a pause, was in and out of foster
homes, had six stepdads and was adopted at 14. He’s been through 15
churches in 10 denominations, from Catholic to Protestant to Messianic.
Still married to his beautiful (and long suffering) wife Susan after 37
years, he has two kids, four grandkids and he has built three businesses
from scratch. Self-educated through college level, he helped grow two
churches, was a youth leader twice and an elder once. He’s been told he
could pass ordination exams but prefers to stay free so he can keep
asking the questions that need to be asked.
His continuing studies took him to seminars with Josh McDowell and
Bruce Wilkinson (Walk through the Bible) in the late 1970’s, and he
later self-studied his way through a college-level education with books
such as ‘Chafer Systematic Theology’ by Lewis Sperry Chafer (the founder
of Dallas Theological Seminary) and ‘Christianity through the Centuries’
by Earle E. Cairns in the early 1980’s. He took seminary-level classes
from Tim Hegg of Torah Resource, looked at the two-house teachings, and
worked his way through textbooks such as Toward an Old Testament
Theology and The Promise Plan of God by Dr. Walter C. Kaiser Jr.,
Protestant Bible Interpretation by Bernard Ramm, and An Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics
by Moises Silva and Dr. Walter C. Kaiser Jr. Most recently he spent a few
years evaluating the Messianic movement through writings, seminars and
congregation visits. At the present time he and his family are not part
of a particular church, but not by choice. After you read his book you
might understand why.
