Teaching Faith without PREACHING Faith

A book to help encourage you or someone in your life who you love dearly to move closer to their faith in God without scaring everyone away with too much preaching.

Starting This Journey Doesn’t Have To Be Difficult. Even When You’re Ready To Find A Way To Work Through Your Faith In God To Achieve Stability And Confidence, It May Feel Discouraging:
  • You’re frustrated because you believe in God yet haven’t figured out how to connect with your faith to help you effectively manage your personal challenges.

  • You have doubts because you have never considered turning to God for help before and don’t quite know how to approach faith.

  • You’re becoming anxious because you know you are repeating destructive behaviors and are looking for help to escape from these habits.

  • You want to become a spiritually driven person yet have doubts and fear that it is socially unacceptable within your circle of friends.

This book can also serve as a useful resource for…

  • Parents, legal guardians, relatives, or friends of children 15+.

  • Anyone 15+ to seniors curious to learn more about faith and how it can help them.

  • Anyone who might be struggling or is confused about life and is considering turning to faith to find answers and solutions to their concerns.

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!
