Like many of us, Carl Marshall had questions. He turned to the Bible for
answers. Marshall is a self taught Biblical Scholar. Most Biblical Scholars
attend school for many years and have several degrees, Marshall's authority
comes from the Holy Spirit.
Many Christians believe their duty is fulfilled by showing up at church on Sunday
mornings. Those same people wait for someone to guide them, to interpret
scriptures for them and in general to tell them how to live. Like Marshall they
could make their own discoveries by delving into scripture.
I was raised in a Christian home. However, a time came when I began to question
the rituals of the denomination and interpretation of my pastor. I also began to
study and discovered that most of the rituals were man made. I discovered that I
was in love with the denomination, the church building (stained glass windows)
and the people. I loved the Lord but perhaps I was beginning to love other
things more. I had to ask myself if I had lost my first love. Much like Marshall
so began my journey.
Light of Innocence is Marshall's story. This book is well organized and well
written. I found this text to be inspiring. He covers many topics including
baptism, Christian living, the virgin birth and church rituals. I highly
recommend this book.

The Light of Innocence: Christian Living by Carl Marshall
Provides an excellent foundation for Christianity studies. Carl Marshall's style is
excellently suited towards Christianity studies, and will teach students the material
clearly without overcomplicating the subject. What's more, the text is available in
the Paperback format shown above (ISBN 9781432748166), as well as a number of other
formats. As of February 2010, this revision raises the bar for The Light of Innocence:
Christian Living's high standard of excellence, making sure that it stays one of the
foremost Christianity studies textbooks.
Carl Marshall's spiritually transformative The Light of Innocence (Christian Living)
is an inspiring exploration of Christian faith for "every child of God." Marshall is a
self-proclaimed "self-learner," not a "product of school, church, or religion," having
failed to find success and meaning in the churches he has attend. Marshall continues
to "seek God's children" and does so in this book in a profound and meaningful way.
This book is a great read for both the secular and the average church-going Christian,
illuminating that God, religion, and spiritual path can be found outside of Church
Vicki Reading at the beach
The Light of Innocence" is a book that will guide you in your Christian
walk,encourage you to study the Bible to improve your relationship with God.
It is very well written and his views are easy to understand and referenced
from the Bible. I may not agree with everything the author says, but I would say this book is
a good choice for those who want to walk closer to God.
Meet The Author:
Carl Marshall’s self-study has proven to him that one must be independent and
be a diligent worker with Jesus Christ in order to be exalted by God.
Christians need to be their own teachers by studying God’s testament themselves.
Mr. Marshall’s goal is that all can find the truth about the body of Jesus
Christ because that is God’s intention.
