It isn't always easy to relate Christianity to our day-to-day activities and concerns. Prayer, Bible study and theology are important to our spiritual growth, but what do they have to do with the clothes we wear, our hairstyles, the medication we choose to take, the celebration of wedding anniversaries, or our spending on cars, vacations and housing? Christian truth is for the routine and not just the crises of our lives. This Handbook offers over 460 articles, from 114 expert (and diverse) contributors on common but key concerns—covering everything from: • Adoption to Automobiles • Chocolate to Craftsmanship • Gardening to Gossip • Shopping malls to Storytelling • Taxes to Television The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity includes indexes arranged by life stages and passages as well as by topic. Unsurpassed both for fascinating browsing and for consultation at moments of special need, this down-to-earth reference work merits a spot on every Christian's bookshelf. About the Editors Robert J.
