About For One Books™

The vast majority of what passes for “Christian literature” today is theologically shallow and self-serving. Many people who profess to be believers in Christ are too busy to read books containing sound doctrine and are, instead, enamored with pop psychology and self-help manuals that claim to be Christian merely because they quote a verse from the Bible every now and then. Too many people want books that tell them how to “get the most” out of their Christian life. They are guided by the question, “What’s in this for me?”

If you are looking for the kind of book that is all about you and how God can help you have a “wonderful life” then For One Books™ isn’t for you. You can find “Christian” self-help books just about anywhere. But we should all understand one thing: The Bible is NOT our self-help manual.

This focus on man in the church is a relatively new thing. For centuries, believers in the Lord Jesus Christ understood the biblical doctrines that place the focus on God — not man. They knew our lives are to glorify God (1 Corinthians 10:31). They knew the good works done in His name are for His glory (Matthew 5:16). They knew that God grants to us gifts so that He may be glorified (1 Peter 4:10-11), and they understood that even Christ’s crucifixion was meant to bring glory to the Father (Philippians 2:8-11). Their lives were guided by a different question, “Does my life bring glory and honor to my Lord?”

For One Books publishes books designed to reacquaint Christians with this biblical doctrine that has been all but lost in our post-modern mankind-centered world.

While we are certainly the beneficiaries of God’s redemptive plan, we need to understand that His plan is first and foremost for His glory. The Bible was written for us — but it is about God.

Likewise, the books published by For One Books are for us — but they are about God.
