Dear Fellow Sojourner,
What can I do to get you to read this book?
I have read thousands of books in my lifetime. Only a few have impacted me profoundly, and only a handful changed my life.
This book is in that category. After reading this, I sat down with my wife and told her how important I think it is that people read it. I've never done anything like this in my life, but after prayer and serious deliberation, we committed our personal resources to provide this book for you.
We believe this book will change your life ...
I think showing him the depth of her conviction through her own giving is part of that example.

Colombia, South America
In Colombia, South America, a missionary couple was driving along a rugged mountain road known for occasional attacks by bandits, when suddenly their car was blocked by thieves brandishing assault rifles, who ordered the couple to sit on the roadside while they ransacked the car.
The missionaries fearfully complied, wondering if they would be shot and killed, as often happens. The thieves took nearly everything, including the projector they were using to show the JESUS film in nearby villages. As the thieves began to leave, the husband boldly called, “Wait, you forgot to take the film.” Amazingly ...
Some of these are one-a-day questions, others could be asked several in succession. Decide according to your preference. You can ask these questions over a forty day period, ten days, or in a single setting, depending on whether you want to spread out the self-examination, or go for the cumulative effect. You can also read them through once, then go back over them slowly to digest them. It’s up to you.
