Anyone can become great in faith and receive from God all that they need for successful living. Author Mark Howard Stout brings clear thinking and concise writing to exploring authentic and effective faith. He defines the nature of faith, explains its essential characteristics, and describes the particular faith of Christians. He presents the case for that faith-that God has revealed himself in the person of Jesus Christ.
"Arrowproof" first explores five essential characteristics of faith. Each characteristic is necessary for the exercise of true faith; when one is absent, what remains is an incomplete understanding of what it means to genuinely believe. The second part of "Arrowproof" presents the Christian faith as a real and full belief in the person of Jesus Christ, one that embraces all five characteristics of faith.
The Christian is encouraged to "take up the shield of faith" to defend against the arrows aimed to destroy. Just as the modern warrior is shielded by bulletproof armor, so the Christian is shielded by "Arrowproof" faith. For those who are seeking to know what faith is, or for those who desire to be stronger in faith, "Arrowproof" points the way. It makes faith understandable, indentifies what it takes to increase faith, and presents reasons why placing your trust-having faith-in the God confessed by Christians is the greatest and highest moral decision a person can make.
