by D. Min. Henry Blount, Jr.
In this collection of essays and articles, including sermons and columns written for the Cen-La Focus, Henry C. Blount, Jr. D. Min walks us through his faith and unique way of seeing the world. Wise, worldly, and always quick with a quote or a witticism, these are meditations on life in a time of uncertainty that will bring comfort to anyone seeking it.
Living Faithfully in the Age of Terror is the culmination of a lifetime of study, and brings together the experience of a man who has counseled families for decades. It offers Blounts spin on subjects from displaying Grace to thumping watermelons, truly demonstrating his commitment to a dynamic Christianity that seeks truth wherever it may turn up sometimes the most unlikely places.
