Since life is a journey, feel free to stop and ask for directions. Previously released as the bestselling The Glorious Journey, this practical volume by Charles Stanley shows readers how to put God's Word to work in their daily lives with this easy-to-apply handbook.
As believers, our desire is to follow the Lord more closely and to utilize His Word for maximum impact in our lives. Occasionally, however, we find ourselves not even knowing the questions to ask, or the best way to approach Scripture in search of answers.
Charles F. Stanley's Handbook for Christian Living is not a lofty theological work, nor is it an academic commentary. Instead, Dr. Stanley has prepared a friendly, easy-to-use help system for every believer. In this collection, he speaks with authority on such issues as:
- the real purpose of baptism
- how to treat others at work
- a proper view of those in government
- how grace saves us and how worry robs us
- what freedom reallly is
He also shares biblical insight into relationships, children, parenting, loneliness, sexual pressures, as well as strategies for personal growth. From the thorny issues of daily life to a framework for the end times (and everything in between), Charles F. Stanley's Handbook for Christian brings Scripture to life, makes sense of the hard questions, and enhances your understanding of the way life was meant to be lived.
Dr. Charles Stanley is the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, where he has served for more than 40 years. He is a New York Times bestselling author who has written more than 60 books, including the bestselling devotional Every Day in His Presence. Dr. Stanley is the founder of In Touch Ministries. The In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley program is transmitted throughout the world on more than 1,200 radio outlets and 130 television stations/networks, and in language projects in more than 50 languages. The award-winning In Touch devotional magazine is printed in four languages with more than 12 million copies each year. Dr. Stanleys goal is best represented by Acts 20:24: "Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesusthe work of telling others the Good News about God's mighty kindness and love." This is because, as he says, "It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes peoples lives."
supersjh4 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Guide and Biblical ExplanationsNovember 21, 2016supersjhQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is great book for new(er) believers and those not raised knowing some of these "church things". I feel this book makes it easy to understand important concepts in the life of a Christian. Each aspect of Christian Living is clearly and concisely explained based on NKJV and NASB scripture and highlighted with quotes from notable Christians. Charles Stanley's teaching remains very practical and always turns the reader back to the Bible. Some of the major areas covered are: Church Concerns (baptism, attendance, tongues, Lord's Supper), Doctrine (repentance, faith, justification), End Times, Personal Growth (contentment, stress), Relationships (loneliness, reconciliation, sex), Service and Outreach, Spiritual Disciplines (intercession, meditation, prayer, tithe)

Clear and easy to understand and practical solutions for todays Christian. It was larger than I expected, and heavier. As a senior citizen with arthritis it is sometimes difficult to hold for long periods of time, but well worth adding to your library.
