This book briefly explains the "thirty life principles", really, a set of ethics, used by Dr. Stanley to address issues like finances, parenting, personal crises, emotional matters, and relationships to have it all be productive in the life of a believer in Christ. It is very impressive material.
For example, those familiar with his program have often heard the closing to "obey God and leave all the consequences to him" - This is life principle number two that he derived from the story in Exodus 19:1-7 and elaborates with a reading of Exodus 3 in addition to other Bible verses in the old and new testament to have the reader to trust God with her/his life, wait for an answer, and prepare for to endure conflict (among other things).
If there is any flaw, that book is short and only introduction - no more than three or four pages are dedicated to a principle and most of the elaboration is taken up by blank areas for users to write-in answers. Those seeking further elaboration should probably consider the Life Principles Bible or the Life Principles CD/DVD series sold at the intouch ministries website.
I have some of his other books and his writing is very clear and easy to understand. I don't want to spend my day looking up bible passages and answering questions like "What do you suppose life was like I the garden of Eden before Adam sinned"
This book is a study guide that requires Bible reading with Q & A throuout this book. I like this better than passive reading because many thought provoking questions are asked which challenges your faith to grow. You see examples of Bible characters & how they responded to God's call & how God empowered them to do His will to do great & marvelous things if they would obey. God still works today in the lives of believers just as He did in the Bible days. The book moves me & makes me feel as eager to serve God as when I was a new Christian.
Each chapter may only be a few pages long, but the book is an excellent educational tool. More importantly the book is also life changing for the Christian.
Since I have begun working on completion of this book, I have found it very useful to incorporate the use of the Believer's Bible Commentary by William MacDonald which is useful to give background information to specific passages as well as the meaning of certain passages. Sometimes this commentary specifically answers the question leaving no doubt as to its meaning. I like an indepth study.
