About the Book

Jesus promised, "I will be with you always, even unto the end of the world." Should it surprise us that Jesus would make it to the Three Rivers City and live among us, in word, spirit and truth? And, the gospels tell us, 'He went about everywhere doing good.' - that means in your home town, too. A.Christian van Gorder takes the "cookies" of faith and puts them on a shelf where anyone can reach them and delight in their sweetness.
