Tending His Sheep
Tending His Sheep
Essential Practical Theology for the Maturing Christian Working in the Kingdom of God.
About the Book
This workbook is a study on Practical Theology and living as an "ambassador" within the "Kingdom of God" and the "Kingdom of Heaven". It builds on the knowledge gained from "Feeding His Lambs" and adds the topics of our current and future roles as Christians within the "Kingdom of Heaven" and the "Kingdom of God". Furthermore, it provides a gentle introduction to various essential teachings (aka -also known as- "doctrines") found in Systematic, Historical, and Practical Theologies, — their origins, their motivations, from those early years toward encroaching heresies and heterodoxy, and their "final traditional agreements" incorporated into today's church dogma. The "sparring sessions" become more intense as we review these ancient "heresies and heterodoxies".
Links are provided to various external scripture translations, lexicons, topical commentaries from the Blue Letter Bible and other proprietary resources. These external links provide additional background information, and concepts for deeper spiritual growth from notable Theologians found throughout the modern-day Body of Christ. I generally quote from the New American Standard Bible and will indicate otherwise when I use another translation. I assume the reader is ready to "eat spiritual finger food" and is beyond the need for, and "weened from, "spiritual milk". (criteria found in Hebrew 5:13-14 and workbook #1 online lessons) I have incorporated several of my dad's — Rev. C. G. Gose, Th.D., D.Div. — sermons, lectures, journals, and articles throughout this entire collection.

C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
The book is almost daily updated. These incremental updates ease my interaction with the proofreaders.
