KIRKUS REVIEW

The purpose of this book is to help everyday people get help from the Bible for everyday problems. It is intended for those whose knowledge of the Bible is often fragmentary, but whose need for help with the realities of life is never-ending and often acute. The author therefore discusses, in a vivid and practical way, some of the great biblical affirmations about life situations and questions, using freely historical, literary and contemporary sources as well as Biblical ones. He is concerned with aiding his readers to get help from the Bible in such situations as: ""When we wonder where God is""; ""When life becomes ordinary""; ""When we are sick in mind and body""; ""When we wonder what God is like""; ""When we are just plain unhappy"" -- which are the titles of five of his chapters. There are 17 others just as pertinent and helpful as these, and they are very helpful indeed. Mr. Crowe is forthright and graceful, too, a rare combination. A book to be recommended freely to all who are looking for help -- and who isn't?
