'H' stands for: - Happiness - Help - Hope - Health - and, most importantly, Humour.

The Bible teaches man the word of God. But Christianity's greatest error has been to interpret the word of God as being the Logos of God. Providing a fresh perspective, The Holy Bible Plus offers a thorough look at the Bible--its origins, its contents, its teachings, its substance, its testaments, and more. The Holy Bible Plus examines a host of topics surrounding the Bible, Christianity, spirituality, and what it means to be a follower of Christ. It seeks to provide an understanding of the WORD, faith, God, the plan, the kingdom, the soul, your duties as a Christian, and sexualities. The essays included in The Holy Bible Plus communicate that Christ revealed how to be creators of new life, not how to be holy. It teaches that obedience to the word is the holiness of Judaism, but discovery of the word is the power of creation.
