The Focus of Faith
These chapters point to the heart of the Christian faith. Each chapter may be read independently of the others. You will find messages such as “The Question that is the Answer,” “Making Good News into Bad News,” “The Exciting Hope,” and many more. These messages are written for the mature Christian, the new Christian, and for people who are seeking and want to know more about the Bible. If you are not familiar with the Bible, some of the concepts may be difficult for you to understand at first. The author aims to write simply in order that even a child can understand.Many of these messages were first delivered in Japan where I served as a missionary and also in many other countries.
