Searching for God

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, 1990 - 137 pages
A practical book for making good second starters in prayer, morality, choice of church, and questions of religious content, Searching for God is more concerned with choosing a good church than it is in finding the one, true church. It presents prayer as the beginning of contact with God and love as the foundation of morality.
