Back to Where We Came From: Our Foretold Journey by B. Lising is a Christian non-fiction guide wherein the author details the streamlined message of the scriptures in a way that makes their consistency difficult to dispute. Over the course of seven chapters, Lising breaks down misconceptions and then leads us back, using scripture in context, to the perfection of God and His control over our lives, our destinies, and our journey. Lising begins with the prophecies that are written with absolute clarity and moves to the often flipped notion that God created darkness when in fact He gave us light, and how this transitions into baptism. From there, he transitions into one, two, and three deeply convincing outlines of the constant motion of God as the Old Testament solidifies its marriage with indisputable, correlating scripture of what is to come.
It's no easy task to put together the universal truth of God's word and what it means in a way that is approachable for even those with little more than a cursory understanding of the Bible. It can feel overwhelming and uncomfortable, not so much for what it says but for what many of us seem to believe it doesn't say. B. Lising flips this coin in a way that we understand how there really is nothing that isn't said, and the scripture is only confusing because we have made it feel that way. Back to Where We Came From is the first book I've cracked open on theology where I walked away with no questions. Zero. How it took forty-three years for me to finally begin to figure this out is beyond me, but it is not beyond God. And therein lies the crux of what should never be called into question: God is in control. God has a plan. “We all have one common journey, and every stage of this journey is a representation of that message from eternity.” Amen to that.
