Nicholasville author publishes book on the Scriptures

A Nicholasville attorney has recently released a book based on the Scriptures and examining Jesus Christ’s nature.

“Jesus Christ in the Flesh: No Super Coating Allowed,” a new book by Brad Boone, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co. Inc.

The book goes through numerous Scriptures from the Bible that specifically address the nature of Jesus Christ while he was in the flesh. These Scriptures contain valuable insight from what others said about Jesus and from what Jesus said about himself.

For most Christians, the truth that Jesus was God in the flesh in turn necessitates that Jesus had all of God’s divine super powers while being in the flesh. But that conclusion is self-imposed, and is inconsistent with what the Scriptures reveal.

This book connects the dots of Scripture to show that Jesus left his super powers in the throne room of heaven in order to model dependence on God the Father just as he expects all Christians to do.

Boone grew up in Western Kentucky, knowing from the age of 10 that he wanted to be a lawyer. He became an Eagle Scout at 13, and filled his formative years with playing all types of sports, his favorites being golf and tennis, which he still plays often today.

He left his small town of Murray to attend the University of Kentucky, receiving a degree in political science. He then fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming an attorney also at the University of Kentucky. Brad currently practices tax and corporate law with Stites & Harbison law firm in Lexington, Kentucky.

Boone began his faith walk at a young age under the strong direction of his father, O.B. Boone, Jr. He began teaching Sunday School classes while in law school and has been a children’s leader with Bible Study Fellowship since 1995.

Brad is married to Laurie, his wife of 34 years, and has four grown children, J.B. and his wife Rachael, Ben and his wife Trinity, Maddie and her husband Josh, and Caroline and her husband Matt.

Brad and Laurie reside in Nicholasville.
