Look Inside

Above all else, we want our family members and friends to rejoice with us in God as our Savior. Yet, those closest to us often present us with the greatest challenges for our witness.

This is the captivating, real-life story of how one man returned to faith through the witness of his son-in-law. Written over a period of almost two years, Rev. Preus’s letters to his father-in-law, Lloyd, contain devotional and doctrinal insight. Preus offers personal anecdotes and advice to help readers who are struggling to reach out to friends or family members who have questions about Christianity.
