About the Book

"The Ditch Is Just As Deep On Either Side of the Road" seeks to challenge the reader to evaluate his own beliefs and perceptions concerning God. This is accomplished primarily by presenting information and by asking questions that will promote group discussion and cause the reader to use his own thinking ability.

For some people, depending on their prior beliefs and upbringing, the Author may "ruffle a few feathers." If that be the case, the reader is encouraged to "read on," it could get worse! For others, the information that is presented may seem like welcome relief; it may even seem like an oasis that makes sense. Regardless of previous religious teaching that has been ingrained into the intellect, the reader of this book is encouraged to be open-minded and allow the Holy Spirit to influence his mind.

This book has three parts. Part One consists of various topics that relate to Bible verses and Biblical themes. The Author has attempted to discuss each article in depth. Part Two is basically reprinted material from the TAG Line newsletter. This newsletter was developed by TAG Ministries Foundation, Inc. of which the Author of this book is a member. Currently, though, TAG Line newsletter is not in print or circulation. These articles focus mainly on the Gospel of John, the first four chapters of which are included in this book. Part Three is centered on "Thinking Outside the Box," or in other words, "Thinking Outside of present Church doctrines and beliefs." This part also serves as an overall view and conclusion to the Author's presentation.

"The Ditch Is Just As Deep On Either Side of the Road" is thought provoking and is intended to provide an avenue for group discussion as well as for for individual reasoning and logic. Stimulating the reader's mind to consider the information contained herein is the Author's objective
