How to Live in a Dangerous World
Biblical Pictures of Modern Perils
The author has put together a series of 34 biographies from Biblical characters, describing people in various states of danger in this world. Dangers from rejection and animosity, danger from love of this world, danger from self-deception, and dangers from perils suffered for standing for Christ.
