Book Details

Life happens. No matter what we do to rein it in, it happens at a speed that sometimes takes our breath away. While life is blitzing down the highway, faster than the speed of accumulating wisdom, we are challenged to get a perspective that will help us navigate the twists and turns that lie ahead. We hear and see pictures and words and wonder what they mean. Is there something hidden between the lines? Is there a message I can’t afford to miss? Am I being told something that doesn’t match what I’m seeing? What do I believe? In all areas of life we have to deal with the real world. It’s not my truth or your truth. It’s whether I gave the right answer on the test. It’s whether I was going the speed limit. It’s whether I stepped out in front of that truck coming down the road. The consequences of wrong actions are all realities that do not change based on my beliefs. What you believe does not change what’s real in the physical world or the spiritual world. So, we must seek and know truth.” Through four decades of ministry, Dr. Tom Kinnan has observed and written on life, faith, and culture. You’ll read about such topics as:

• Affirmation
• Influence
• Bitterness
• Certainty
• Common Sense and Logic
• Following the Science
• Intimacy
• Reality
