Book Review: An Anchor for the Soul
An Anchor for the Soul: Help for the Present, Hope for the Future
By Ray Pritchard
Moody Publishers, 2011
English, 192 pgs
People have honest doubts and questions about God that deserve solid answers. How do we explain the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way we can all understand? Ray Pritchard has updated this best-selling presentation of the gospel in a clear, straightforward way using simple language and clear Scripture references.
An Anchor for the Soul is written with doubters, seekers, and skeptics in mind. In a clear, straightforward presentation, he answers questions such as: What is God like? How can I know Him? Who is Jesus and what did He do? What does it mean to be a Christian? Through stories and illustrations, Pastor Pritchard very personally, yet gently, challenges his readers with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
This is a simple, easy to read, explanation of the Gospel of Christ. I've actually been reading one section a day to my 4 year old son and he's starting to understand, I think. This is a book that needs to be given to those you know who are searching for significance or have undergone something which makes them question God and maybe rebel against Him.
I like that each chapter as "going deeper" questions and there is a chapter about the steps for the new believer. Great book.
I received a copy of the book for review purposes. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
