Nine important messages, written in the author's friendly style, are embraced in this volume. The title of the book is taken from the first message, which is of such great import in these days when so many are worshipping a dead Christ. The Living Christ has a vital appeal to the young as well as to the old. It emphasizes the need and the way of salvation. In the chapter entitled "Your Permanent Writing," the author stresses the importance of character, showing how character is formed by habits--good or bad--and becomes permanent. Some day it will be revealed! Dr. Houghton turns the "Stop Light" across life's pathway, for he is a friend of young people, and points them the better way.
