It’s never too late.

Whether you’re a new Christian or you’ve walked the road for decades, it’s never too late to find the critical truths that make life make sense.

We often start out believing that common sense will be enough, that we’re prepared for the road ahead with our good values and quick thinking.

It doesn’t take long to learn otherwise. A broken friendship. An obsessive career. Financial distress. Even empty success. We come back to God, searching for insight, for hope. And He provides.

Nothing can replace studying the Bible. Best-selling author and pastor Charles Swindoll has spent decades studying its pages and teaching its precepts.

But if sixty-six books seem overwhelming, The Owner’s Manual for Christians is the perfect starting place: a biblical summary of the major truths that anchor the Christian life. From grace to freedom, these chapters walk the reader through the keys to a life well lived – drawn from the Creator of life itself.

Life is often confusing, but it does not have to be impossible. Read The Owner’s Manual for Christians and find hope for the road ahead.
