Study Biblical Metaphors to Grow through Your Daily Challenges. Life is full of challenges as we seek to navigate our lives and grow to be more like Christ. Jesus and the apostle Paul describe the Christians as an athlete, a soldier, a letter, an ambassador, a priest, a temple, a steward, and a handful of other pictures. This book examines 13 New Testament word pictures of the Christian life that give us insights in dealing with challenges we face daily. This book is perfect for personal and group study, Sunday School curriculum, or as part of a sermon series. Questions are provided at the end of each of the thirteen chapters for personal reflection or group discussion. When we get a biblical picture of our internal self, we are likely to try and live out that perception in daily life. - Elmer Towns, Co Founder, Liberty University Dr. Sam Hoyt has been in pastoral ministry for 31 years.
