Lost Books?
By: Rev. Gregory Seltz
(Includes subtitles in English) - Ever wondered if some texts were intentionally excluded from the Bible and why? In Lost Books? the Men's NetWork looks at why some ancient writings failed to make the cut for inclusion, why other texts most definitely met the standard, and why others, including those "gospels" found in the last century, came up short.

In Lost Books?, host Rev. Gregory Seltz, Speaker of The Lutheran Hour, asks, "Were books intentionally excluded from the Bible? What if more information about Christ's life was buried for centuries? Are there books that should be in the Bible, but aren't?" Are these questions important? Absolutely! With worldwide hits like The Da Vinci Code and commercial and cable networks cranking out programs on cracking cryptic codes and unburying ancient secrets, the interest in knowing what the past has to say is running high. Often, too, these types of questions are directed to believers, putting them at a loss to answer those who wonder why the Bible should be believed over other ancient writings. In fact, many Christians have the same questions themselves.

Addressing these queries and several other issues are Dr. Paul Maier (professor emeritus, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo); Dr. Jeffrey Kloha (associate professor of exegetical theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis); Dr. Randall Price (executive director of the Center for Judaic Studies, Liberty University, Lynchburg, Va.); and Joel Lampe (international director, The Bible Museum, Goodyear, Ariz.) Together these biblical experts will explore the fascinating and cryptic world of the apocrypha, pseudepigrapha, the Apocrypha, and the Nag Hammadi codices. They will also consider topics like biblical inerrancy, Gnosticism, alternative gospels, divine inspiration, the supposedly lesser-known sayings of Jesus, text selection, and more. They will show why the 66 books of the Bible are considered the inerrant Word of God-a trustworthy cover-to-cover revelation from God to man.

Reasons to Believe
The faith Christians confess is grounded in the texts of Scripture and the historical milieu of the people and places where the events of the Bible unfolded. This affirmation of trust by the believer in God's saving grace is not a question of choosing between facts and faith; neither is it one that collapses beneath the rigors of academic scrutiny.

Satan: The Great Deceiver
The battle we wage in this world is not against flesh and blood but "against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." So writes the apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:12. Thus our capacity to resist the forces of darkness is ultimately a losing fight.

It seems these days it's easier than ever to get lost in the reverie of yesteryear. I was looking at some Polaroids going back to when I was a kid in the 70s.
