“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Award-winning speaker and best-selling author Al Carraway presents an in-depth study of the life of Jesus Christ and how it relates to our own in an intimate and personal way. Written by someone who truly knows God, Finding Yourself in the New Testament skillfully and sincerely introduces its readers to the Savior and shows them who and what He really is. Not only does it illustrate how deeply involved God is in the lives of His children, but it also provides an excellent guide to the history, culture, and context of ancient Israel and the Jewish religion.
Drawing directly from the four Gospels of the New Testament, this book will lead you to the Being who can give you the power to change; the God “who goes to the hated, the forgotten, the different, the outcast, the sinner, and the excommunicated and befriends them; the God who calls them to great things and blesses and loves them; the God who forgives in the act, reaches for those sinking, and stops for those buried in the crowd or alone in the heat of the day.”
See yourself in every aspect of the Savior’s ministry and in the lives of the people He blessed. Understand that Jesus Christ truly did come that we might have life—and all else—more abundantly.

Her passion is to tell everyone that happiness exists. It comes from living the gospel of Jesus Christ and in finding and loving Him through the hard, the unwanted, and the unexpected challenges of life. Because through it all, with God, we have every reason to be wildly optimistic.
