Swindoll does a great job again in making you feel as if he's your grandfather sharing his knowledge with you. Each chapter is a great sermonette on many real issues of today.

I used this as a devotional with my daily bible readings. This was my first book by Charles Swindoll, but definitely not my last. He explains areas of scripture in plain, easy-to-understand language, to encourage and help getting through some of the more difficult things in life. I highlighted so many things while reading, that I will definitely be using this as a resource on those days when it seems like everything is falling apart and life is just plain hard!

The touching and emotional break down he describes that happened to himself i ...more

I was impressed with this book from the beginning and Swindoll continued to impress until the very end. In his book about how to deal with the tough stuff in life (temptation, anxiety, divorce, prejudice, death, author Swindoll creates pictures that remind you of times in your life when you were face to face with the tough stuff. Then he brings in Scripture to show that Jesus faced the tough stuff in His time on earth, too, and we have no better fellow traveller on this planet than Christ Himsel ...more
