Rev. Ball is a graduate from Clear Creek Baptist Bible College and comes from a rich background of 44 years of hands on experiences in ministry, including pastoring 5 churches and various preaching opportunities. He has held multiple associational service positions and has served in multiple ministries such as jail, retirement homes, etc. In addition to his ministry positions he has been bi-vocational for much of his ministry and held numerous secular positions in the construction industry such as commercial and residential construction as well as surveying, mining, and highway construction. He has dealt with people where they live and counseled them with their problems. He knows what the demands of the world are on the church member and what the limitations are in balancing life.
Seeing the struggle of Christians to balance their lives with all its demands and the volumes of misinformation on how a Christian is supposed to act and live, the idea of writing this book was born. One of the most basic principles of life for the Christian is the principle of faith, yet most Christians struggle to implement it into their lives. Faith is a mystery to the carnal mind, but it should not be a mystery to the spiritual mind. This book is his effort to dispel misconceptions about faith, state the objective of faith, expose how it works, identify basic steps of faith, explain why it will be tried, how to fight the forces of evil with faith and to touch on the victory that is ours when we stand on faith. It is a manual on faith that you will want to go to again and again as you implement the principle of faith into your walk with the Lord.
