Have you ever seen yourself in the gallery of pictures presented to us in scripture? Maybe you see yourself as a Job pondering what Gods purpose is. A Jonah as he is given a mission he doesnt want. A Mary, unsure of the path before her but willing to be Gods instrument. This books purpose is to shed light on these questions that we bring before the throne of God. Many times the response is to move forward and walk on water. In these moments of our journey with Him we rejoice; feeling the excitement of Seeking and Finding a God who is dreaming with us. Other times we are presented with Be Still and Know lessons which cause many to stumble and question God as they feel swallowed up by the sea of life. This study dives into the heart of both areas. In doing so we will enter a much broader topic of pain and suffering, where Gods silence and His answers meet.

A Second Look at the Savior is a thoughtful and inspiring testimony. Byron walks us through Scripture and his own personal faith journey. He leads us on a quest to recognize Gods calling to live a life of faith in the darkness. He reminds us powerfully that God can be trusted in our most vulnerable moments.

Dr. Mike Williams, President Faulkner University

About the author

Byron Smith has worked in several ministries over the last 20 years. After receiving his BA in Biblical Studies through Faulkner University, he served as youth minister, Inner-city evangelist, and presently the Director of Gulf Coast Bible Camp. Throughout all these works, He has primarily been tied to youth and their families.

"I am not a preacher, but I often speak from the pulpit. I am not a counselor, yet I spend endless hours counseling young people. I am not a fund-raiser and still I have been responsible for raising funds for a Bible Camp the past ten years. I am not a plumber, lumber-jack, or a list of other titles and yet I find myself doing that work as well.

I am a student of God's word, who is not afraid to ask questions and learn. And because I seek to dwell in His presence, He has made me successful in everything I have attempted to do. And so I decided to put Him to the ultimate test and write a book :)

Over the years, I have hurt with a lot of people who have struggled to hear God. Because I suffer from the human condition, I have had my share of trials as well. This book is my gift to Him and I pray that He uses it as He sees fit. May God receive all the glory, honor, and praise that it can produce."

One of the great fears many of us face is that despite all our effort and striving, we will discover at the end that we have wasted our life. In A Guide to the Good Life, William B. Irvine plumbs the wisdom of Stoic philosophy, one of the most popular and successful schools of thought in ancient Rome, and shows how its insight and advice are still remarkably applicable to modern lives. In A Guide to the Good Life, Irvine offers a refreshing presentation of Stoicism, showing how this ancient philosophy can still direct us toward a better life. Using the psychological insights and the practical techniques of the Stoics, Irvine offers a roadmap for anyone seeking to avoid the feelings of chronic dissatisfaction that plague so many of us. Irvine looks at various Stoic techniques for attaining tranquility and shows how to put these techniques to work in our own life. As he does so, he describes his own experiences practicing Stoicism and offers valuable first-hand advice for anyone wishing to live better by following in the footsteps of these ancient philosophers. Readers learn how to minimize worry, how to let go of the past and focus our efforts on the things we can control, and how to deal with insults, grief, old age, and the distracting temptations of fame and fortune. We learn from Marcus Aurelius the importance of prizing only things of true value, and from Epictetus we learn how to be more content with what we have. Finally, A Guide to the Good Life shows readers how to become thoughtful observers of their own lives. If we watch ourselves as we go about our daily business and later reflect on what we saw, we can better identify the sources of distress and eventually avoid that pain in our life. By doing this, the Stoics thought, we can hope to attain a truly joyful life.
