Reviews - What do customers think about Made For His Pleasure: Ten Benchmarks of a Vital Faith?
I gave it to all my deacons for Christmas Jul 3, 2002
This is a great heart-felt and heart-warming little book about being a disciple of Jesus Christ. It is easy to read and beneficial for any Christian at any stage of their spiritual walk. I whole-heartedly recommend it.
Great foundational summary! Apr 28, 1999
Begg does an excellent job of focusing the new disciple of Christ on the road and job ahead as well as refocusing and truly maturing the less recent convert to Christ. Begg pulls no punches and speaks the truth boldly.
A great foundations-of-the-faith book Dec 18, 1998
This book is a great foundational manual. Alistair has a way of bringing the truth out in the open and not apologizing for it. This book is appropriate for both veteran Christians, new believers, and those seeking God.
