This may involve Christianity’s history, psychology, philosophy, etc. Books under this category are a resource for anyone interested in learning more about how the diverse stories and themes of the Bible and religious traditions fit together as a whole. Topical studies hone what the Bible says about a particular issue and dig deep into it to prove a writer’s point.

The 72 Hour Authentication of the Christ
The 72 Hour Authentication of the Christ: Christ’s Only Sign is the complete title of this illuminating work of Kelly Don Ford. Published in June this year, Kelly Don Ford’s work is available to purchase in the market. This is a short work but an enlightening one that will strike any Christian. Ford uses paired theological analysis with scriptural detective work to closely examine the centuries-old mystery surrounding the timeframe of Jesus’ death and resurrection three days (72 hours) later.
Ford compares the gravity of this timeframe to the critical hours after a disaster. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) makes known that the first 72 hours after a disaster are the most critical. The actions and responses during this amount of time can determine whether one lives or die. And, if you live, those actions can determine how comfortably you can survive the disaster of the aftermath. Ford notes that this timeframe is critical because Christ was meant to fulfill prophecy. And that anything less than accuracy in the testament undermines the truth of Christ’s prophetic and messianic role in salvation.
In today’s world, a lot is going on in each of our lives as well as our country, and for that matter the world with the current pandemic. When a disaster strikes or a crime is committed, we have learned that the more prepared we are beforehand or right after, the sooner we act or react, the better the outcome or an adaptive solution. 72 hours has become a statistical time that works out best. Cases tend to get cold and weaken outside that perimeter. We refer to them as the 72 Critical Hours. 2,000 years ago that timeframe might not have gotten much attention, but there was a Prophet who knew the value of those hours and how they would misdirect nations do not believe the importance of who He is and what He said. After all, He is the WORD! Go with us on a journey to uncover the truth about the 72 Critical Hours after the cross. (Book description)
