by Marcel Rebiai
130 daily readings for a journey of radical and authentic change. Marcel Rebiai unveils with great eloquence our deepest human needs and puts our universal problems into godly perspective. The author reveals God’s character in profoundly tangible ways and we cannot help but be humbled.
This book isn’t written from an aloof position, but provides a deeply meaningful place from which to understand our daily issues. It is a series of teachings divided into study days but can be just as easily read through. Can be used as a devotional as 15 parts over 130 days encourage daily reading and reflection. A modern classic in the style of Watchman Nee and Tozer.
