Life is one crisis after another. If you don't believe this, just wait, it will surely come! We are a people drowning in a quagmire of economic, political and moral confusion. So much of our activity is nothing more than a cheap anesthetic to deaden the pain of an empty life. We blame our circumstances, our government, our family and even God for our despair. We must recognize the frailty of human life, the reality of sin, the meaning of life, also the enigma of pain and injustice - all tools in God's polishing process in our lives! This book is a compilation of life-changing insights about a loving God whose character portrays His desire for fellowship with us and our need to accept, appreciate and experience His attributes in our emotions, pains and joys of life. By understanding ourselves, we will then be equipped with the ability to live today with laser-intense purpose! Dr. Peter Angier has served with The Navigators for 34 years, of which 13 years were spent in Lebanon and Jordan mentoring men. Following the 1975 Civil War in Beirut, he served as Pastor of Evangelism and Missions at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood; Executive Director of Gospel Literature International; later as Pastor of Evangelism and Assimilation at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, California. Peter's education includes Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from California Graduate School of Theology and Bachelor of Science from California Polytechnic State University. Dr. Angier is the author of Foundations for Life-Long Significance. He received a Proclamation Service Award for 50 years of Christian ministry by the Board of Supervisors of Los Angeles County. Peter, his wife, Ida, reside in Glendale, California where he mentors businessmen and professionals. They have two sons and eleven grandchildren.
