The Most Important Thing in Life (It’s Good for the Mind, Body, and Soul) gives readers a strong understanding of the author and his origins. The subject matter of each sermon is relevant and relates to what readers might want to know about God and His Word. The variety of topics also keeps readers interested and demonstrates how the Bible can provide appropriate advice for any situation we may encounter.
The sermons in this non-fiction book address the deepest need of humankind, which is the need to have a relationship with our Creator, the God of the Universe, as revealed through Jesus Christ. This need has not changed, and we never outgrow it.
“The singular goal of the book is for the reader to experience renewal and transformation as they come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their life,” said Dancel, Jr.
