Praise for the Print Edition

Unlike many books of this kind, the teaching is definite. Here we find food for the hungry, comfort for the perplexed, and weapons for the warrior. These pages show how practical the Bible is, and how vast the range of its Revelation.

The British Evangelist

There is a wealth and variety of suggestive thought and abundant outline and material for sermons and addresses.

Scottish Review

These are good handfuls, some almost too full; but gleaners will carry away from this field all they can hold, and return again for more.

    This became a pre-pub a couple weeks ago, and I already committed to this during community pricing. However, I just purchased a base package that has this same book included. I am confused and prepared to cancel my pre-pub unless someone can share what is happening. I don't want to pay for the book twice. Should those who want it faster, just purchase a base package? -Thanks

    This product seems to have an artificially inflated baseline of $6. Can someone please explain why? I've cancelled my bid until this is cleared up.

  5. Robert Earl Houston

  6. Richard Labelle
    It would be very helpful to know who is James Smith! Please, could you include a brief bio about him.
