If you are seeking a book that goes beyond first principles, this book is for you. If you are seeking a devotional book that not only inspires but also teaches deeper truth regarding Godly living, this book is for you. In his book, "Seeking God's Truth in a Troubled World" Richard covers a plethora of subjects from fear, anxiety, forgiveness, prayer, plus many other pertinent subjects.
As you read this, you will realize Godly change results when we surrender completely to God. And once we are surrendered, and the old nature is crucified, we begin walking in the Spirit and Christlikeness ensues.

I loved this book Richard has taken a very honest and direct approach in showing us what Jesus did, as well as what He tells us to do.
The premise of the book is based on a solid foundation of Scripture which should not be debated. He also addresses the provisions in which God has given to us that enable us to live holy and Godly lives. Maybe just importantly Richard shows us ways in which we are to love Jesus.
These are 36 powerful chapters in which Jesus is brought to bear in all of them. I see this book in light of the Kingdom of God. Kingdom is a word that is rarely used by the church today, yet Jesus used it all the time. If we are true believers we understand that we are living in the Kingdom now and not in some distant future when we die.
Richard has brought honesty and clarity to the Scriptures contained in the 36 chapters of this book. These are passages that represent well the wisdom of Jesus in the Scriptures.

I couldn't put the book down. Thank you for being so transparent. It is a book that I wanted to race through, getting more and more excited with each page. I found myself saying "ouch" every few pages. (But it is an "ouch" with hope and inspiration attached by the Holy Spirit that "yes, you can do this, with my help"). Now, I just want to take each devotional slowly, perhaps over several days or more, and ponder and pray, and live it out in obedience. Richard's book is so refreshing, and very encouraging. He carries the heart of God. It is written in a very conversational style, like he is sitting down and talking to you across the kitchen table. May it draw thirsty people from all walks and stages of life, and give them a long, cool, drink of living water they won't forget.

The author shares from his lifelong passion and dedication to serving our Almighty God. In this revealing account of a life lived out through Jesus Christ, you will be challenged to explore the depth of God's power available to all of us. Richard shares from his own lifetime of experience just how deep in God's love we can all live. The truths of these devotionals about God's grace should be proclaimed to the ends of the earth.
