Christians believe God inspired the words of Scripture, which is why the Bible is called the Word of God. This volume shows you how these sacred words will empower your life today. It provides the answers to life's ultimate questions: Who am I? Where did I come from? What is my purpose? This book will help you understand the Bible's timeless truths and guide you to become all you were meant to be
