How to Live in a Dangerous World, Biblical Pictures of Modern Perils by Roger Ellsworth and published by Evangelical Press.
Our televisions and newspapers bombard us with dangers threatening our economy, our environment, our educational system and more, but the greatest dangers we face are spiritual ones. The dangers which worry us the most are often able to damage us only here and now, but mistaken beliefs can lead to eternal ruin.
Roger Ellsworth identifies many of the major beliefs and values of our day, finds Bible characters who shared the same perspectives and discovers where those beliefs and values led them. The author wants to know what we may learn from those who have gone before us and how we may avoid falling into the same pitfalls as they did. The result is a fresh understanding of the grace of God which enabled others to overcome the very real dangers they faced and which is still more than sufficient for every one of us living in our dangerous world.
