* How should a Christian deal with sin?

I am not a new believer, I have been a believer for many years, but it is always good to go over the fundamentals of Christianity. I recommend this book to everybody, to the believer and unbeliever!
JennOKC, OKAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5August 5, 2010JennOKC, OKAge: 35-44Gender: femaleThis is the best discipleship book I have ever come across. The terms are explained in very plain and easy to understand language. The bible is the central focus of the study, and the author has worked hard to help the student easily understand the key themes of the Gospel. I enjoyed this study even though I have been a Christian for over twenty years. I even bought extras so that I could have them on hand when people started asking questions about how to be a Christian.
Anne MathewsColumbus OhioAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5June 26, 2009Anne MathewsColumbus OhioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleI love this book. I was recently baptised as a Christian and accepted Christ as my Lord and and Savior. I was raised Catholic and for many reasons left the Catholic Church and for a long time I did not go to church. I have recently joined a church and was baptised! But, I had a lot of questions about Christianity, yes I was taught Catholic doctrine, but never really taught (or encouraged ) to read the bible, never taught how to actually pray, or what it exactally means to be a Christian. This book has answered these questions for me and has really sparked an interest to find out more. Has a matter of fact I have bought it least 10 of the Following God Series books and can hardly wait to get started on them. I have told my pastor that I may be interested in doing a bible study in the fall using some of the books.
Williams Lyons5 Stars Out Of 5January 11, 2009Williams LyonsThis book is extremely good for new members class, and even for those who believe they been in the church but they got nothing out of it,due to canal pastors.I strongly recommend this book to all churches.
