People under Construction
By: Edwin Zackrison, Ph.D.
About the Book
The issue of recovery is not new to twenty-first-century human beings. We struggle with the need for recovery from injury, disease, and pain. These are largely medical concerns and they can fill our lives with details.
People under Construction deals with spirit and relationship. Often a “self-help” book presents a series of steps and secrets. This is not a “self-help book” and the author does not plan to present many steps or secrets. Every chapter will deal with the Spirit and build an understanding of what Christianity does to show the working of the Spirit.
