OVERVIEW

As a pastor, professor, and father, Philip Nation has had many years to practice the habits and ways of the Christian faith. This book pulls together all of those years in an uplifting and encouraging manner, perfect for every church library. Stepping through each separate practice of holiness from fellowship to fasting, he gives practical and applicable ways for every believer to grow closer to the community of faith and their God. He uses anecdotes, personal experience tales, illustrations, and contemporary examples to help readers get a better handle on aspects of Bible study, prayer, meditation, and Christian service.

This book is a must for every believer, church library, and pastor’s office. Filled with advice and personal experience from his family life and career, this convicting book is a lifelong journey and commitment, wrapped in an unassuming and simple package. Easy-to-follow guidance is presented in a kind manner without condescension, and no one is exempt from being convicted by the message of this book.
