Biblical, practical, straightforward, and timely are the main qualities that these brief booklets will offer to those who read them. If you're looking for a relevant word for your difficult path, read them hopefully and receive much needed direction. After you've read them, by placing these booklets into the hands of a hurting friend, you may also be giving that person just the thing he or she desperately needs in order to receive a ready word for a difficult situation."See All

"Here is a series of booklets that will provide the pastor and interested layman with a veritable arsenal of material for attacking problems that people have! In them, my fishing buddy, Lou Priolo, has cast his lure accurately and will retrieve many a roaming fish from the problems of bitterness, lying, manipulation, divorce, and wondering about self his image. All fishers of men should buy and distribute them in counseling and generally. Churches should fill their tract racks with them. They will bless many."See All
This hard-hitting booklet is designed to persuade individuals who are intent on pursuing divorce (on other than biblical grounds) to reconsider their plans. The first portion focuses on the likely consequences of such an action. The second refutes nine of the most common justifications for divorce. There is also an entire section (appendix) that addresses the issue of being "in love" with someone other than one's spouse.
