Most Helpful Customer Reviews
One of the two books that I have already recommended to more Christians than I can count.
A great book for learning how to speak to people's hearts rather than doing behavior modification. Tripp, though wordy at times, emphasizes the importance of incarnational ministry.Key Quote = "We must not offer people a system of redemption, a set of insights and principles. We offer people a Redeemer.¿
Great book on personal ministry and biblical counseling!
