It's never too late.

Whether you're a new Christian or you've walked the road for decades, it's never too late to find the critical truths that make life make sense.

We often start out believing that common sense will be enough, that we're prepared for the road ahead with our good values and quick thinking.

It doesn't take long to learn otherwise. A broken friendship. An obse

Chuck Swindoll is my favorite Bible teacher. He always is so practical. I pray the quotes from this book will bless and challenge you:


It’s never too late to start doing what is right. p. x

Donald Grey Barnhouse said, “ Love that goes upward is worship; love that goes outward is affection; love that stoops is grace.” To show grace is to extend favor or kindness to one who doesn’t deserve it and can never earn it. p. 5

This is one of Swindoll's better written books. In many ways this book is a type of the Christian discip[line life books. Comments in this book were "Prayer is not bargaining or pleading","To do what is right is to side with the truth of God", "We need to bow low before our God". This is a book I will reread at some later time in my life.

Chuck Swindoll is one of my favorite Bible teachers. This book is so simple but has so much insight. I plan to add many quotes on my blog, http://timchavel.blogspot.com/ as time permits. Let me just give one quote at this time:

God often does His best work in us when He catches us by surprise and introduces a change that is completely against our own desire.

I highly recommend this book!

I skimmed it, as it is very basic. It's a summary of many of Swindoll's other books. Solid, good reading, simple.
