How encouraging! Dr. Grimstead’s new book appears at a most critical time; makes the correct analysis; and offers the needful correctives. The future of churches, missions and—yes, civilization itself—depends on whether or not Christians clearly understand and carefully heed the central thesis of Drawing a Line in the Sand.

“Conceived in ancient times of formative church councils, nurtured by the Protestant Reformation, challenged by theological drift in the 19th and 20th centuries, the multifaceted vision of Dr. Jay Grimstead to return the modern church to its biblical roots has been birthed in our time. For many of us who shared in his labor pangs, the vision at times seemed too grand to be realized and its vessels too weak to carry it forward. Yet in the late decades of the 20th century and early years of the 21st, the vision took real shape as the Holy Spirit guided an impossibly diverse group of churchmen to network and cooperate in shaping movements and creedal statements declaring biblical truth in the face of resurrected old and innovative new heresies. This book is a valuable record of how dedicated Christians can reawaken the church to affirm eternal truth and renounce falsehood. The book is a library in itself of how we should think and live in an age when truth has fallen in the streets.”
Dear Dr. Clingman,
Blessings on your work for the Int. Church Counsel Project! Your pastor’s visits on public schools is exactly as mine over the past 30 years. I am so happy you are in this warfare with Satan and our public schools. Your work may not be recognized in your life-time, but that one child “rescued” will be worth it all! Helping our dear brother Dr. Jay Grimstead is a work God will reward generously. Thanks much! At 88 years old (Nov. 24, 2013), I am now ministering on a different level, but I can pray for you a lot, and will. Holy Spirit Blessings on your great work! Your brother in Christ’s Love, Bob
I feel privileged to be a member of the International Church Council Committee headed by Dr. Jay Grimstead. This man of God has labored untiringly in the defense of the inerrancy of the Bible and to reestablish evangelical Christianity as the moral foundation of our nation since 1977 when he was a prime mover in founding the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy. This current, united effort of Christian leaders to reestablish the historic, biblical standards of doctrine for the Body of Christ in the 21st Century has my full support.

I am happy to endorse the international Church Council under the leadership of Dr. Jay Grimstead, for the efforts that they have made for many years for the defense of the infallibility of the Scriptures and the returning of the Church to its historical orthodoxy. In the midst of the massive theological confusion and relativism of our time, I think the International Church Council is a much needed organization for our day.

This project is awesome, needed, important, vital, astute and a priority for the world-wide Church for all Believers to read and understand. Be sure to get a copy of the book REBUILDING CIVILIZATION ON THE BIBLE: Documents on the Church’s 24 Controversial Issues by Dr. Jay Grimstead and Dr. Eugene Clingman.Published by Nordskog Publishing.
A well crafted creed or confession will send the noble, Berean-minded Christian straight back to the Scriptures. To avoid presuming upon God, we must know what we believe before we act. The ICCP bridges the gap between theory and practice with clear, actionable statements of Biblical faith.
It may look right now as if the Church is suffering from a tremendous state of apostasy, drifting and confusion. But in areas where things look bleakest and darkest, sometimes you can see a tremendous transformation if you are just willing to take a stand and work towards clarifying issues.
