Principles for the Christian Life
by Robert M. Gullberg View author's profile page

Overview


Got a tough question about the Christian life or the belief systems of others? This easy to navigate e-book contains over 75 subjects. PART 1 contains the "nuts and bolts" of Christianity. PART 2 looks at what is going on in the 85% rest of the world of non-Christendom. Most Christians are vaguely familiar regarding where other people are coming from in their particular belief systems. Subjects in Part 1 include: The Bible, the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, Christian growth, renewing the mind, prayer and its many workings, spiritual gifts, evangelism, eternal security, predestination, judgment, death, the crucifixion, cremation, heaven, the resurrection, angels, the problem of evil, suffering, sickness, Satan, temptation, hell, the church, communion, baptism, church denominations, easy believism, prophecy, end times, and the important topic of Christian ethics (abortion, capital punishment, divorce, homosexuality, war, civil disobedience, and euthanasia). Topics in Part 2 include: 1) cults (Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, Christian Scientist, Scientology, Unitarianism, Freemasonry, and Hare Krishna) 2) God-believing world religions- Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Bahai Faith 3) Eastern philosophies, but no God religions- Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shintoism, and 4) No God religions- New Age Movement, Atheism and Darwinism. Why compile a book like this? To educate the Christian with a "bottom line" format. Hosea 4:6 says, "My people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge." I feel that the Bible itself contains the answers to all of life's tough questions. I see these difficult questions asked everyday by all of us. This book should serve as a practical reference for you in your lifetime of discipleship.

About the author


Dr. Bob Gullberg is originally from Park Ridge, Illinois and has practiced Internal Medicine in Racine, Wisconsin for over 25 years. His father was a dentist and practiced for over 40 years, many of those years as a volunteer at the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, Illinois. Both of his parents, brother Jim, and sisters Lin and Lauri are believers and have influenced him greatly in the Christian faith. Bob spent his boyhood living part time on a lake in Wisconsin regularly enjoying summer and winter sports. This lakehood experience helped to shape his view of God's marvelous creation. He attended Northwestern University and graduated with a degree in Chemistry. Four years later, he graduated from the University of Illinois Med School . As a senior in medical school, he got a glimpse of global missions when he worked in a missionary hospital in Herbertpur, India near the Nepalian border for 3 months. From the University of Illinois, he headed to Evanston Hospital and completed a residency in Internal Medicine. Next was a two-year Fellowship in the study of Infections at NU Medical School in Chicago. After his post graduate fellowship, he arrived in Racine and married Janet Henricksen 2 years later. He and Janet have four children. Each are walking with the Lord and gifted uniquely! Bob has been a believer for about 40 years. His journey with the Lord began as a 13 year old at the Northwest Covenant Church in Mt. Prospect, Illinois. There, Pastor Engseth led him to the Lord. While attending Maine East High School, mentorship from Dave Veerman of Campus Life followed. Son City at South Park Church with Bill Hybels as Youth Pastor was part of his growing experience. When college began, Craig Domeck took him under his wing in Campus Crusade for Christ. Medical school followed, and some warm fellowship with Steve Kashian, Herb Lang, and Diane Stecher in regular Bible Studies was part of the weekly spiritual diet. While in Rockford, Illinois on a 3 year medical stint, he attended the Evangelical Free Church (Lareau Lindquist was the pastor, good friend, and occasional racket ball partner). Dr. Dave Norquist was a special friend , and quality time was spent with the Christian Medical Society group, and with Eric Anderson, his travel mate to India. Post Graduate training ensued at Northwestern University, and Bible study with cross-healthcare students kept him active in God's word. Small group studies with Pete Jaggard, MD, Doug Smith, Steve Bundra MD and many others were regular. When Bob arrived in Racine, Wisconsin, the late Dr. Jim Peterson and Dr. Don Cohill mentored him for many years. Presently, Bob and his family are active at Grace Church in Racine Wisconsin. He tributes Pastor Jerry Worsham for having a large impact on his life from the pulpit for about 20 years. Pastor Rusty Hayes was a trusted accountability partner for years while he was at Grace also. Dr Bob has led Bible studies for 35 years on all sorts of topics from Genesis to Revelation. Over the years, he has had the opportunity to do short term medical work in several remote areas of the world doing medical missions; including Honduras, Haiti, and central Africa. God is at work in every nook and cranny of this globe. He has been a practicing internist for years and has kept busy trying to take care of a full load of patients. There are occasions on a daily basis to see God work His miracles in his patients. When he has time, he likes to swim (oh yes, only in those warm Wisconsin summers), fish, play guitar (a great way to worship), watch movies, dig into trivia by reading nonfiction history, do gardening (he enjoys perennials), help take care of the family's three dogs-Reagan, Maggie, and Reese (though his wife, the ultimate dog lover does most of that), help care for his aging parents, play golf (in the summer), ski (in the winter) or just hang out with the kids. One of his goals in life is to get know the B
