There is much talk today about the spiritual disciplines. The age-old tools of Bible study, prayer, witnessing, church attendance, service, and obedience are still relevant today. Outlining the various stages of spiritual growth and how we can find Christ in every circumstance, this study enables believers to lay aside every sin and weight that would hinder them in their walk with God.
Insight from one of the world's most popular pastors for Christians who desire to be all that God has called them to be.
"In this world you will have trouble…" We will have trouble. God has already promised us this in His Word. Tragedy is an inevitable part of life. And that means that we will also experience grief, anger, and overwhelming questions: "What do we do now? How do we respond to this tragedy? Where is God when this happens?"
Dr. Charles Stanley has heard those questions-has even asked them himself-as he and those in his congregation have faced individual moments of tragedy. Tragedy, whether on a national scale or as part of a private life, has the same devastating effect. "But in the Bible there are answers," Dr. Stanley says. "God's Word shows us how to live when tragedy strikes." And we can be assured by the conclusion of John 16:33 to "take heart!" He has indeed overcome the world!

Love has always been the need.
Jesus has always been the answer.
"The world is hurting for love," writes pastor and Bible teacher Charles Stanley. "Because God is infinite and full of compassion, He heard our cries and responded in the form of a perfect gift, Jesus."

From this simple but profound premise, Dr. Stanley unfolds the riches of the giver and the glories of the gift. Stanley explores the many dimensions of God's generous nature, first in His character, then in the revelation of Himself through His Son, and finally in the impact of His magnificent gift.
