Acknowledging that it’s time to ask for help in finding or reconnecting to your faith can be intimidating and confusing.

Who is this book for?

If you would like to encourage someone in your life who you love dearly, such as your son, daughter, or a close friend, to move closer to their faith in God to help them navigate through life’s challenges without scaring them away with too much preaching, this book can be an excellent resource for you.

By focusing on contemporary topics, keeping the chapters short, and adopting a relatable writing style, this book is crafted to resonate with believers, seekers, and skeptics alike.

Please take a moment to review the various topics discussed in the book, which are listed in the table of contents shown below.

This book does not contain any pointless conversations about sexuality and has just one chapter that briefly mentions politics, and only as a point of reference.

In addition, two thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter encourage the reader to pause and think about what they have read. This will give them a deeper understanding of how their faith in God can help them instead of dealing with everything through their own strength, while possibly giving them eternal hope as well.

Book reviews

Steve Lobrovich has written an excellent book that challenges people to think seriously and strategically about crucial issues. The book “Teaching Faith Without Preaching Faith,” is written in a very readable style, creatively utilizes short chapters, plus contains narratives about the truths related that illustrate so well. My favorite chapters were: Having Class, Marriage – Taking the Plunge, and The Atheist(s) in Your Life. Such good material for readers of ALL ages! Bravo, Steve – wish I could have read the book 50 years ago!
