A Relationship With God
Discovering Life Beyond Religion
Are you tired of the constant pressure of trying to be “good enough” to please God? Are you weary of the church’s nitpicking rules that seem to have no foundation in Scripture? Does church attendance feel more like a duty than a joy? Maybe it’s time for you to discover a relationship with your Heavenly Father.
Let Ken Schott lead you on a journey from legalism to liberty, from traditionalism to truth, from empty religion to relationship. Based on his own personal journey, Schott gently guides readers into the riches of a personal relationship with the God who loves you, knows you by name, and wants only the best for you. The journey will take you through changes in attitudes, changes in habits, and changes in your perceptions of God. The final result is a renewed relationship with God and a confidence in your future with Him. You’ll embrace the Father who longs to embrace you.
Trade your burdensome religion for a loving relationship with your Heavenly Father.
