Everyone has a problem.
Wherever I go, I hear unhappy people asking for help. Perplexed and adrift, they cannot understand how they have lost their bearings. Instead of growing more serene with the passing years, they feel themselves pulled this way and that. With their families breaking up, their children running wild, and their own lives plunging toward the depths of personal degradation, they do not want to act as they do but they cannot help themselves.
Does the Bible hold an answer for them? Or for those persons whose difficulties are in the fields of business or ethics? Indeed it does!
For many years, I have searched the Scriptures for answers to problems that have come to me through my daily newspaper column, telecasts, broadcasts, and evangelistic crusades. I have written answers to these questions in a daily newspaper column called "My Answer," with a daily circulation of more than sixteen million.
There is overwhelming documented evidence that the answers based on the Bible have helped thousands. Young people have found guidance in difficult years of growing up young married couples have been helped in the gravest period of adjustment broken homes have been reunited and lives have been changed, as a Biblical answer has been given to the perplexing personal and social problems of
our time. Business and laboring men have been prayerfully guided in the problem of ethics in critical and perplexing situations.
We have received several million letters in the last few years asking every conceivable question, and presenting almost every possible human situation. Every one has received a personal answer either from me or from one of my able and faithful associates.
I have read many books and consulted many well-known professors of psychology, sociology, and philosophy but always I have returned to the Bible for the basis of my answer. There is a burning conviction in my soul that our problems are a result of our ignorance of divine moral law, Judaeo-Christian ethics, and God's purpose for human redemption in Christ our unwillingness to obey God's rule, suggestion and imperative for abundant living in any circumstances.
Now this book is called My Answer; my devout hope is that it might equally well be called God's answer. I have a far deeper conviction today than when I began that the Bible has the answer to every moral situation known to man.
From a mother whose heart is crushed because her son is in revolt to the husband whose wife is faithless, from the youth who wants one more fling to the aging saint who feels that he is not wanted by his children, the teachings of Jesus Christ provide the only ultimate answer.
It is my prayer that this selection of over three hundred questions and answers will be of help to you as you see your need expressed through someone else.
He who is "the Way, the Truth and the Life" can guide and help you to a new hope and courage to live joyously and abundantly in a difficult world.
