Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from University Student This book changed the way I view the doctrines of the Church. By grounding all his points and reasoning in the Bible, Chuck Swindoll shows how much he desires to provide people with a true faith firmly rooted in Scripture. A fantastic book, Swindoll shows clearly how deep his insight into the Bible and it's doctrines runs. By using relevant quotes and providing personal stories, he also demonstrates his ability to write a very readable book. Again, a fantastic book.
