Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book came to me at a terrific time, while my church is working to improve our fellowship. I found the writing style to be easy-to-read, yet filled with Bible-backed truth and information. Bridges presents many points in a building-block style, repeating key information as needed but without watering-down the flow of the book. I've brought the book to our Sabbath Class and am enjoying it as a group study.
