This is the perfect pamphlet for any Christian who desires to know about life and praising The Lord the correct ways. It goes through the mental/spiritual anatomy of people, why we must connect and repent, how to praise God and the key to connecting and enjoying Jesus in the Holy Spirit. A must read for ANY Christian.

God fist became man called Jesus Christ. Then Christ died on the cross to redeem man. To Receive life, repent and believe in the Lord. Glorification: fully saturated believers body in life. Once we are saved, we are saved forever. When we are saved we become children of God. We become God's temple and his spirit dwells in us. The word of God is sharper than a two edged sword. The soul and the spirit must be separated, the soul has three parts emotion, mind and will.

This is a wonderful pamphlet for anyone new to the Christian faith, curious about what it's all about, or people like me who just need a refresher. Available free online from Bibles for America, I highly recommend it and I will be reading more from this organization shortly. The chapters devoted to distinguishing the body, soul, and spirit were particularly clarifying for me and I am glad to have read it.

A basic, but thorough, introduction for a new Christian. I don't fully abide by all the small details such as OSAS the Lees seem to be embrace, but I enjoyed their indepth exploration of the "spirit". It gave me some mental food to chew on later. This is a free, small booklet but it's a good resource if a person is new to the faith.

It was a very enlightening book. Some Christians like myself don't fully understand the basic elements of the Christian Life but I read this book and it helped me. But it needed to go into more detail.

I recommend that everyone read this book.

There are 5 short chapters that can help you to be assured of the basics of being a Christian. I personally have read this book more than 10 times and have used it to help disciple others who are beginning the Christian life.
