Experiences like this express the gap which exists between what we are and what we want to be. This book is all about bridging that gap!

In a vivid series of images and parables, the Christian life is depicted not as a drear duty, but as an adventure of faith--living each day by the guidance and power of Christ's indwelling presence.

Review: The Renewed Mind

User Review  - Maggie Kapnisis -

I first read this book many years ago, as a baby Christian, and it really helped me at the time. So much so, I've since bought several copies to give away. I thoroughly recommend this book, particularly chapter 5, 'The Old Landlord'. Read full review

Review: The Renewed Mind

User Review  - Jeffrey Flynn -

A good book for one who wants to grow as a Christian. It's presents an effective way of controlling ones thinking and staying away from sin. Not an easy read, had to re-read some stuff to make sure I absorbed what the author was presenting, but once I got there it was well worth the effort. Read full review
