The Potter and His Clay How To Know God's Present Purpose For Your Life Now, Starting Well and Finishing Strong, The Christian Grace Race Written from a heart to help all believers discover and know the perfect will of God for their lives. Some who have discovered His will, have been sidetracked and detoured from it. In a marathon it is not how you start the race, but how you finish This book is a study of the process in making clay pottery in ancient times, and how in allegorical language it relates to the spiritual journey of our Christian life today. The ultimate goal of this book is to give scriptural guidelines on how to help you finish the Grace Race and complete God's destiny for your life "Your message is so timely and powerful. Wow I pray that your book will make it into the hands (and hearts) of everyone who so desperately needs to read it I agree with you that we are living in somewhat of a paradoxical time. Sometimes it seems as though everyone has given up on revival and living for Jesus. Yet, we also live in a time where so many hunger for more. Your book sounds an alarm while simultaneously raising a banner of hope for those who think true Christianity has done nothing but disintegrate." -Michael and Kathy from Plano, TX Alan Burns is founder and director of "Rivers of Life Outreach Ministries."
