Great Resource for Study Group Sep 25, 2002
What a great resource for a study group on this issue. I used this book as a source for presenting Biblical guidance on gambling and the lottery. The material was very straight-forward and easy to understand. The Bible is very clear on the issue and Dr. Evans brought what the Bible has to say to us on this in a way that any layperson could understand. There should be no question as to what our Father expects from us after reading this book and following up with the Biblical references that were cited in the book.
The Truth has finally been told about the Lottery! May 4, 1999
If you do not what to know the truth about Gambling and the Lottery then this book isn't for you! Dr. Evans has done an excellent job in presenting what the Word of God says concerning this issue and where we as beleivers are to stand also. In all of Tony Evans writtings he deals with the truth only, not personal feelings or opinions. Bless Your Spirit
Wonderful Apr 6, 1997
I was amazed at the wonderful insight that Dr. Evans gives in this in depth study of the lottery and gambling. I am so thankful that somebody finally had the guts to step up tothe plate and deal with this issue on a biblical base. Many times preachers refuse to deal with issues so controversial because of the reaction that they anticipate from the crowd. Thank you Dr. Evans for your biblical stance and your wonderful teaching.
