Back Jacket;if you only remember hearing a single verse in the Bible, itis Probably John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." However, it amazes me how many terrific 3:16 verses there are in the other books of the New Testament. in fact, these verses tell the whole gospel story and are enough to show us the way to Heaven.Like the little lights that mark the path down the aisle of an airplane, or those that shine on the darkened stairs in a movie theater, this daily devotional book uses these verses to show you how to start your walk with God, and enables you to stay on the road that leads to Heaven. This 40 day journey, complete model prayers and a daily Bible study, will answer the great questions of life; Where will I spend eternity?" and "How do I get there?"
Order yours today.Suggested donation for a copy is $2.00. Larger orders will receive a substantial discount.
