In every life, there is happiness and sorrow; however, for some, the sorrow can be overwhelming. In the book, By Faith, the author starts his healing process by demonstrating that faith encourages healing and allows one to carry on his or her life's mission.
Using biblical verses, as applicable to everyday issues, the author summarizes challenges, victories and encouragements. He uses childhood lessons, sports, mentors, family and friends to provide insights; explaining that whether it is money, success, or temporary failures and defeat - the Bible provides guidance for every situation.
Although sometimes stressful, he explains that if we follow the teachings of Jesus and God's purpose for our destinies, our changing world can be full of joy. We see that the life and insight of historical figures blends with Christian attributes.
Each chapter opens with a biblical verse and then the targeted topic is explored. In order to clarify and to strengthen the spiritual significance, uplifting messages are brought forth. The "final thought" is delivered and the lesson is summarized in an inspiring manner.
