This edition of the series has been completely revised and updated, and includes two brand-new lessons from Dr. Stanley.
The Charles F. Stanley Bible Studies Series brings Scripture to life in twelve lessons filled with teachings from one the most respected Bible teachers today. Each volume includes study questions, commentary, and reflections to help readers apply the 30 Life Principles to their unique situations.
Advancing Through Adversity -Why does God allow adversity? God has a plan and a purpose for each of us, and He can turn things to good regardless of the situation we face. These two key principles–rooted in Scripture and evidenced in the lives of Christians throughout the ages–should color the lenses through which all followers of Christ view adversity. In Advancing Through Adversity, Dr. Charles Stanley provides a new perspective on the trials we face, revealing what questions to ask and what lessons can be learned from such times. Understanding God’s role and bolstering our courage can help us advance through adversity rather than be overcome by it.
Experiencing Forgiveness - True freedom is found in forgiveness. God wants us to experience His complete forgiveness and the freedom to embrace all of the blessings, challenges, and joys that He has for us–both now and in our future. Unfortunately, many of us live in bondage to guilt and unforgiveness that stifle our ability to love and receive love. In Experiencing Forgiveness, Dr. Charles Stanley identifies the components of forgiveness and teaches us how to forgive others, accept God’s forgiveness of sins, and find the freedom and blessings of a full and abundant life.
Listening To God - Does God speak to us today? Although most of us can talk with ease to our best friend, many of us aren’t so good at being quiet and hearing what our friend has to say. So it is with God. For true communication to happen with Him, we must learn to listen through understanding His Word. In Listening to God, Dr. Charles Stanley presents a sound way to explore God’s Word and hear His truths. He reveals how we can identify with passages of Scripture, reflect on their meaning, and then develop practical steps to apply what we have learned.
