About the Series
Pocket-sized booklets produced by different men and women who are well qualified and experienced in their field and in some cases, writing from personal experience. Some are pastors; many others are Christian counselors. As the titles suggest, these deal with a variety of issues covering specific sins and facing crises such as cancer or the loss of a baby. Each booklet follows a similar format. If sin is involved, then it is clearly identified and the reader is called to repentance. The principles that are explained and the practice of righteousness that is commended are sane, well balanced, faithful to Scripture and yet encouraging, aiming to point the individual to forsake sin and walk in God’s ways. Tough questions are not avoided, either in dealing with sin or facing sin in the lives of others. Genuine help and sympathy comes from those who are writing from personal experience. Each booklet concludes with personal application projects and provides reliable web sites, organisations and books from which to obtain further help. One commendable feature is the fact that the booklets do not assume that all their readers are Christians. Each points the reader to Christ and urges the reader to come to him in faith and repentance. If you intend to use one of these to give to someone who is not yet a Christian, make sure you read it yourself first so that you can respond helpfully to them once they have read it. A warmly commended series! Evangelical Times Sept 2011 – Austin Walker Crawley
