This helpful book assists the reader in checking the health of their spiritual life and walk with God. Author Mark Nysewander paints a number of "portraits" of typical "saints and sinners", describing the spiritual condition of each person's heart. He does so in order that each of us might better understand ourselves, and how the strengths and weaknesses in our personality affect our relationship with the Father. Among the portraits in this book are many that show spiritual flaws. These flaws can create serious problems in your life. For that reason whenever your discover your portrait, your should ask, "Do I like what my spiritual condition is doing to my life?" Yet the author has much hope and encouragement for us, and teaches that even a badly flawed portrait can be changed and made new through Christ. In simple, practical terms, he shows how this can happen and guides us into a place of restoration and freedom.
