Firm Foundations: Creation to Christ.
New Tribes Mission as a mission, we do praise the Lord for their zeal to carry the Gospel to those who have not heard and we want to mention the following excellent item which can be very helpful in working with people either in English or other languages who do not have a Bible background. It is "Firm Foundations: Creation to Christ" and is available in English, Russian, Spanish, French, and other languages.
There are 50 lessons designed for a one-year course, but included is a plan for teaching in a shorter period of time if so desired. The teacher's manual includes three 17" X 22" color maps and one 17" X 66" color chart of the Bible events covered. The lessons begin with creation and follow God's revelation of the Gospel progressively through the Bible, highlighting key themes. The standard edition is designed for adults and teens. There is also a Children's Edition for younger ages, and the 50 lessons in the Children's Edition parallel those in the adult edition. This course can be used very effectively in North American churches as a Sunday School class for people from other parts of the world who speak English as a second language.
Many of these people are open to hearing about the Bible and Jesus Christ, but they often are confused by the standard preaching and teaching at churches because they don't understand even the basics of Bible truth. Fundamental Baptist missionary friend John O'Brien gives the following testimony of the Russian edition of the 'Firm Foundations' course: "There is a comprehensive Chronological Gospel book ('Firm Foundations: Creation to Christ') in Russian being printed by New Tribes Mission. I've examined the book personally at length and have found it to be sound. We plan on using the book for discipleship for new converts. we've found this particular book a rare gem due to it's thoroughness in presenting the necessary principles of the Gospel: God's Holiness, Man's Sinful Depravity, Consequences of Sin, Promise of the Redeemer, Substitutionary Atonement, Salvation by God's grace."
