Simply outstanding. The author skilfully addresses the all too common arguments for spiritual isolation and indifference.
This is easy to read, easy to understand and easy to evaluate your life against the backdrop of Scripture in the areas discussed.
Donald wisely speaks to the many popular misconceptions regarding what it means to live for Jesus Christ in todays confused church environment.
Informative, challenging and inspiring - yes, this is another must read.
