It is markedly notable that the author uses the term "Biblical principle" to indicate a verse is going to be shared. This subtly communicates to the reader, whether Christian or not, that the Scriptures are not stories or ideas, but principles on which to base our characters, decisions and actions. The author shares that his father and stepfather did not lead him spiritually, and in so doing creates a bond with the audience. The topic of this book is a sensitive subject, and people tend to assume that those who speak about godly father figures are those who had one. By including himself in the audience, the author demonstrates that this book is coming from a unique angle that holds credibility. The author's clarity in drawing concrete correlations between social problems and the state of one's spirituality is invaluable. Many feel Christianity is airy, and often are told they need to pray or have faith, which sounds abstract and unrealistic. The author discusses real life scenarios and suggests changes in behavior for the reader who sincerely wants to have a better life.
