The wisdom of God's Word speaks for itself in 24 major life-topics, each with related Scriptures grouped together into a simple, easy-to-read, condensed format. Gathered from various books of the Bible, the life-topics explain God's principles for the most important subjects pertaining to life and death on planet earth--principles given only by God in the best interests of his creation. They are able to edify and enlighten, and will establish a strong self-identity and sense of purpose for anybody who learns from them. Readers will quickly understand the highlights of God's work throughout history to reconcile the human race back to himself, including the central focus of the Bible...the grace and peace offered to all people through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is truly sad and regretful that most people are not taught these basic truths prior to adulthood, saving millions of us from countless years or whole lifetimes mainly in pursuit of what is temporary; what will pass away. But, young or old, now is surely a better time to start than never. So, for anyone interested in gaining an inner spirit of peace and fulfillment, let the light from these pages shine into your heart. Everything needed to be accepted and personally known by God himself is included.

About the author (2010)

About the Researcher/Author Sam Shepherd is one of millions of people who grew up with almost no knowledge of the Bible or the principles of God it contains. His parents were decent, law-abiding people like many others, but the Scriptures were never read at home, nor was church attendance a part of their lives. God and Jesus Christ were brought up only when used as curse-words; about the same at school as well. After serving in the Navy, Sam attended college and lived in California throughout his 20's until, at age 30, several circumstances came together at once, causing him to accept an acquaintance's suggestion to buy a Bible and read it for the first time. In so doing he became captivated by the human history it contained, by the common sense of God's principles, and by the mercy and obedience of Christ's sacrifice on the cross. Shortly thereafter Sam moved back to the Midwest where his roots and his relatives were located. Ever since returning 35 years ago he has been a student of the Scriptures, plus a student of being led and blessed, or taught and disciplined by God's inner Spirit daily, as any seeker of God experiences. All the while he worked in the fields of marketing or manufacturing until his recent semi-retirement. Sam has one daughter, and refers to himself as simply an average citizen (adding that it puts him in the same social class as the original 12 Disciples and early Believers). He plans to spend the rest of his earthly life encouraging people everywhere to... "know the truth, and the truth will set you free"...in the midst of a world full of human voices and opinions.
