This book has been written primarily for the benefit of those who have the wonderful privilege and responsibility of helping to bring up some of God’s children. It is for anyone who has the opportunity of coming alongside new or growing believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and helping them to mature in the Christian faith. Whether you are recognized by your local church as a pastor, whether you lead a Bible study group, whether you have friends who have recently come to faith, or even if its is your own children who have trusted the Saviour, this book is for you.
So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us. – 1 Thessalonians 2:8
