Have you ever been puzzled as to how God’s promises work? Others talk about answers to their prayers; but somehow you do not experience such wonders. The author understands such questions and doubts and has dedicated his long ministry to making “the science of Christianity” understandable and personal. He shows the reader how Peter’s promise becomes a thrilling reality to fellow Christians: God “has granted to us his precious and very great promises; that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion; and become partakers of the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4; RSV). Find promises for problems such as a tendency to criticize; family dissensions; wayward children; problems with infidelity; loneliness; a search for a Christian mate; and a joyless home environment.
