Many people would be surprised to learn that God's view of them is much greater than their own. Ralph Harris, founder and President of LifeCourse Ministries, leads readers to experience a deeply satisfying, joyful relationship with Christ as they embrace what God thinks of them--that they are holy, righteous, blameless, and lovable.

With easily communicated biblical knowledge and examples of God's grace, Harris turns readers toward the love affair with God they were made for. Revealing and unique insights help readers:

  • exchange fear and obligation for delight and devotion
  • recognize the remarkable role and strength of the Holy Spirit in their daily lives
  • view their status as a new creation as the new normal--and live accordingly!

Readers will encounter wisdom, direction, and encouragement as they rest in God's truth and mercy, develop a sincere partnership with Christ, and live as confident children of God.
