Sometimes human nature disappoints us, and we are left longing for a love that we just can’t hold on to. We are constantly let down, or our expectations are crushed by hurt which makes it hard for us to trust love.

We are living in a world where love, as a gift from God, is misunderstood, has grown cold, and is needed more than ever. The good news is, we are actually loved more than we realize, and the source of that love is Love himself—God. The love we want and need is available to anyone who reaches out and receives it.

Perfect Love: The Eternal Gift helps define love and includes chapters such as: God’s Love and the Cross of Jesus, Love and Forgiveness, Love and Our Use of Money, and Love and War. The book explains how love can overcome problems in all areas of life and how it is the only power that can heal our families and world.

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him” (1 John 4:9, NIV).

Psalm 127:1 says, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.” A house isn’t built all at once. Preliminary things must come first, then the foundation, then the structure. Perseverance is needed to overcome unexpected hindrances. Building a life with God is, in every way, similar to building a house. Many think a life with God is all about personal salvation and going to heaven. God’s plan is much bigger than that. We live in a world of growing instability and troubles. People need a house that offers them safety and well-being. Discover in this book how the Lord builds a house that provides what people need. Those who build a life with God will build a house that others will find welcoming and life-giving.

Faith always has an object. What you and I believe in is what we rely on to give us what we need and want. There are two important questions to consider: (1) Is what or whom we believe in, capable of giving us what we need and want? (2) Is what we think we need and want the same as what we truly need? This book defines faith, answers questions about faith, shows how and why faith works, helps us identify weaknesses and strengths of our faith, challenges us to consider God as the ultimate source of faith, and gives insights on how faith enables us to overcome problems we face. Examples include how faith helps one overcome addictions and how faith helps one establish a positive self-identity. The goal of this book is to help readers grow in understanding and practicing genuine faith, thus becoming the person God created us to be.“Our faith is the victory that overcomes the world.” (1 John 5:4 ISV)

Troublesome times are increasing. Scanning the news and seeing what is happening around the world leaves many with anxieties, fears, and depression. Moral decline, increasing violence, terrorism, and threats of war are everywhere. Americans fear things like a divided country, not having enough money, identity theft, natural disasters, mass shootings, and walking alone at night. Employers complain of difficulty finding reliable workers, and experienced school teachers say it’s harder to teach. For Christians, increased persecution is at hand. What’s the world coming to? is a common thought in people’s minds. Good news! There is hope!

This book offers hope and mentions three different kinds. The kind of hope you have makes a difference in the kind of life you live. You can experience a hope that brings joy and peace of mind in the midst of adversity. This book is about knowing the Creator of hope and how this Creator would have us live in times like these. It’s about finding life-giving hope that fulfills its promises for a trouble-free world.

Based on Jesus’ words that He is the Light of the world, this book will help believers better understand their faith and enable them to live a richer and more satisfying life. It will assist those who have not yet trusted Jesus to understand what the Christian Way is about so they can come to a more intelligent decision on whether to follow Jesus, or not. To discover Jesus’ love, wisdom, and peace is the ultimate aim of the book, but requires that we come out of darkness and into the light.

The book contains 26 chapters on various subjects because the author believes learning to see all areas of life from God’s point of view enables believers to make sense out of life, experience the energy of new life in Christ, and have hope to sustain them through life’s difficulties.
