Easy to Read Jul 10, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was easy to read and a refresher for what I already knew to be true. I plan to use it as a witnessing tool and to give copies to family and friends that are not saved because it provides the basic concepts in a nonthreatening way.

Lost At Sea Jul 4, 2005
Where did I come from? Where am I going? Why am I here? Who was Jesus and what does he have to do with me?
These are some of the questions Pastor Ray Pritchard has set out to answer in his book, An Anchor For The Soul. He's done a good job. There are very few actual Biblical quotes here but his book is firmly rooted in the Gospel of Christ. He makes his points clearly and concisely and his book is a pleasure to read.
For the newcomer, the curious soul wondering what it's all about, An Anchor For The Soul serves as a wonderful introduction to the world of Christianity. For the old hand, the one who's been around the church a few times, this book serves as a reminder of what it all means.
I found wisdom and enlightenment in the pages of this book. This book does not have all the answers but it will point you in the right direction. If you find yourself lost and confused, give this book a chance. You'll be glad you did.
Excellent Book For Seekers & Christians Alike! Sep 7, 2002
First off, I'm a pastor in Chicago. Ray Pritchard is my senior pastor(I don't work for him; I minister at a nearby college). I've enjoyed his sermons for almost 3 & 1/2 years now. So I'm a bit partial to him. With that said, let me say that this is the first book by Dr. Pritchard that I've actually read. It's very down to earth, clear, and easy to read. It took me all of 3 days to finish it(it's only 130 pages long). Dr. Pritchard basically tells us that we're sinners, why we're sinners, why we can't save ourselves, and why we need a savior. But most importantly, he tells us what to do to get saved and to find salvation. He doesn't browbeat the reader into submission or to his ideas. But he lovingly explains all that I've mentioned above. And he proves everything he says in this book. This book would be an excellent gift for anyone and everyone you know that doesn't know Jesus personally. Amen to Dr. Pritchard & this book!!!
Fresh Start Motivator Nov 21, 2000
An Anchor for the Soul is a primer in helping seekers and new believers capture the essence of new life in Jesus Christ. We use it at our church as part of a Fresh Start Packet for new believers and seekers. It is scripturally based and presents a great help for those seeking to grow in Jesus Christ. It also gives hope to those who are looking for an anchor to base their life upon in a world desperately looking for answers to the key questions of life. It is easy reading, but compelling. I highly recommend this little book as a means of telling the Good News that can only be found in Jesus Christ.
