Introducing this work on practical Christianity, I want to tell you a little about myself. In getting to know me, you will understand why I write the way that I do. I am not ashamed of personal references, except with reference to those things, which will not edify Christ Jesus, and cause you to be built up in the faith. The book that you are about to read was written by me in the mid 70's when I was a student at Biola University in La Mirada, California. In Chapter One, I deal with the supposed contradictions that the critics and liberals say that there are and give answers for refutation. With this in place, then the book is ready for studying knowing that there are not really any contradictions in the Word of God. In Chapters Three- Four, I teach on love being the primary motivation for living the Christian life and then earning rewards, the secondary motivation for Christian living. In Chapter Five, I teach on faith and works, the indivisible twins. Calvin said, "Faith alone saves, but faith that saves is not alone." This chapter, I teach on Abraham, the man of faith and works. In Chapter Six, I teach on temptation and how to fight it. I share how three parts of man are tempted requiring three different responses. In Chapter Seven, I teach on witnessing and how to do it. This chapter thoroughly goes into basic answers to the heathen. In Chapter Eight, I teach on the will of God and how to find it. Basically, the will of God is found in the Word of God. In Chapter Nine, I teach on what the Bible teaches concerning prayer. In Chapter Ten, I teach on what the Bible teaches concerning humility. In the Appendix, I teach on both Christ's first and second advents with commentary.

This great tool for the new or mature Christian has it all: well thought-out progression, step-by-step teaching, excellent illustrations (as Jesus Himself taught with illustration), and applications!. Challenges both new a mature Christians to greater love and Christlikeness, and serves as a valuable resource in my own library for discipleship!
