Item description for Three Steps Forwards, Two Steps Back by Charles R. Swindoll...
Overview Three steps forward, two steps back-that's how life feels most of the time, doesn't it? Just about the time things are looking up, you get knocked down again. You can't seem to get on top of all your struggles. Finances are out of whack. Teenagers seem uncontrollable? Your job is more frustrating than fulfilling. Murphy's Law seems the rule. As Chuck Swindoll says, sometimes it feels more like one step forward, five steps back. Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Back is just that practical, proven ways to cope with fear, stress, misunderstanding, inferiority, personal loss, anger, and temptation. Chuck shows you how to take any problem and "walk into it, through it, and come out stronger in Christ on the other side." You can persevere through pressure.
Charles Swindoll reminds readers that our problems are not solved by simple answers or all-too-easy cliches. Instead, he offers practical ways to walk with God through the realities of life-including times of fear, stress, anger and temptation.

This books a keeper Mar 16, 2006
I have had this book for a long time and have read it over and over again. It is a very realistic look at what a mature Christian's life can be like at times. When a problem overtakes me, it is nice to know that even great Christian leaders have had some of the same struggles and have come through - have persevered.
Would be worth five stars. . . Sep 14, 2004
but I've come to expect more from Swindoll than this. Good material, well presented. But I have come to expect Swindoll to be transcendently insightful, and he isn't here.
