God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you, but you have to decide if you want to know God and obey His Laws - He will not force Himself upon you. This book is about God; His character and attributes; His Son, Jesus Christ; What you can do to get to know Him; His Word, the Holy Bible; His Law, The Ten Commandments; Prayer.
It is also about getting 'Right' with God - Righteousness and about Trusting and Obeying God. We will also talk about Heaven and Hell, Sin and Satan, Judgment Day, what happens when we die, and why did God have to send His only Son, Jesus, to earth to live among us as a man? What prompted God to do that? Why did He feel it necessary? More importantly, what should you do with or about Jesus Christ? What about religion, how does that fit in? The book's title promises Joy and Peace - how does God factor into that discussion?
The target audience for this book is three groups of people:
1. You do not really know very much about God, but you know in your heart that God exists, you have questions and you are searching for answers. You have come to the right place and you will be made aware of additional resources by the end of this book.
2. You have been brought up with religious training, but you have doubts and questions. You want to know the Truth. You want to know what God wants from you and what He expects of you. You have come to the right place as well!
3. You consider yourself a Christian; you answered an altar-call or recited a prayer asking Jesus into your life, but it has not really led to a change and you have doubts about your conversion and salvation. By the time you finish reading this book, you will know where you stand with God and, if necessary, what you have to do to ensure you are 'right with God.'
