A long-time Gospel preacher in Mississippi, this book is dedicated to his life of service in God's kingdom. All of his lessons are Bible-centered and sorely needed in these days of severe challenge to the truth. This is the first of three volumes of sermon outlines by brother Thornton. These outlines are divided into four sections, with thirteen lessons in each group. Section titles are Abiding in Christ, What Everybody ought to Know, Finding My Place in the Church, and Some "Fear Nots” of the Bible.
