From the Author
Why do you need to be living the virtuous life?
Why is this God's calling in His first and great commandment?
Why is it the sole means to inheriting eternal life?
This is what I hope you'll discover in my new book ... along with how to apply what you learn in your daily life.
I feel like this book is a great follow up to my first, "The Pearl: The Captivating Story of the Wondrous Love of God". The Pearl laid a great foundation for understanding the good news of the gospel, even taking it all the way back to the Creation account. Building on that good news, this book lays a great foundation for developing a Christian life once you are positively caught in the power of Christ's Kingdom. It also provides a great foundation in support of my Essential Spiritual Fitness Program, a Program that helps people develop for themselves the virtuous life.
As you read through this book I hope you feel as I did, in awe of Christ's first and great commandment and His moral law that is the foundation of His sublime teaching. I hope you will see that through the power of enduring faith in Christ, His sublime teaching is capable of rooting out the very vices that seek to wreak havoc at your very core. Finally, I hope you will see God's natural law and its practical application more clearly than ever before; so much so that through your faith you can even start to make sense of applying it in your own daily life.
God Bless! And don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
