"Dr. Youssef conveys the eternal truth that the only real 'self
help, ' is to admit that we are powerless without Christ. I hope
that this book reminds you, as it did me, to recommit yourself to
being a faithful and obedient servant to and ambassador for
Christ."--governor of Georgia"Sonny Perdue" (01/01/2007)
"Dr. Youssef's ability to weave modern tales and circumstances into Paul's message written centuries ago is just the antidote our society needs today. I, for one, plan to read Paul's epistle with Michael Youssef's book in hand."--NYT bestselling author"Paul J. Meyer" (01/01/2007)
