How do we cultivate a truly biblical ministry? Just what is the personal ministry of the Word?

Bob Kellemen examines life’s ultimate questions, and then guides readers on a journey that explores the biblical narrative of creation, fall, and redemption. Kellemen builds on the foundation of the written Word and provides a gospel-centered resource for understanding people, diagnosing problems, and prescribing biblically-based solutions.

Praise for the Print Edition

I love this book and the gospel that is so beautifully portrayed here where the rubber meets the road, in our daily lives, in our struggle to believe and to live in the light of all he’s done. What a blessing!
