Product Description


They are simple phrases. They sound Christian--like something you might find in the Bible. We've all heard these words. Maybe we've said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways.

Join Adam Hamilton in this 6-week Bible study to search for the whole truth by comparing common Christian cliches with the wisdom found in Scripture. The cliches include:
  • Everything happens for a reason.
  • God helps those who help themselves.
  • God won't give you more than you can handle.
  • God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
  • Love the sinner, hate the sin.

About the Author


Adam Hamilton

Adam Hamilton

Rev. Adam Hamilton is the founding pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. He grew up in the Kansas City area, attending Shawnee Mission schools before graduating from Blue Valley High School. He earned a B.A. degree in Pastoral Ministry from Oral Roberts University and a Master of Divinity Degree from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University.

Adam has received the B'nai B'rith award in Social Ethics, the Denman Award in Evangelism, and the Circuit Rider Award for excellence in church leadership. He was named Distinguished Evangelist of the United Methodist Church by the Foundation for Evangelism, and he was named one of the "Ten People to Watch in America's Spiritual Landscape" by Religion and Ethics Newsweekly. He has been awarded two honorary doctorates and numerous other awards. He currently serves as a Trustee at Saint Paul School of Theology and as a member of the Kansas East Board of Professional Ministry. He lectures on leadership, evangelism and preaching across the country.

The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection has grown from four people in 1990 to over 17,000 adult members with an average weekly worship attendance of over 7,500 in 2008. The church was listed as the most influential mainline church in America in a 2005 survey of American pastors. The Church of the Resurrection has a three-fold focus: 1. Reaching non-religious and nominally religious people and helping them become committed followers of Jesus Christ; 2. Equipping and inspiring members to live their faith in mission to the community and world; and 3. Acting as a catalyst for renewing the mainline church.
