Where to Find Help

Stuart Briscoe

Life can be hard. There are a lot of people looking for help to deal with the tough things in life… ongoing frustrations, temptations, and guilt. Advice columnists and talk shows dispense bite-sized solutions to big problems, but are they the best source of help? Hebrews 4:16 says: “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

When we are stressed out, we often leave our Bible on the shelf and go in search of answers elsewhere, but relevant, practical help is waiting in God’s Word. Stuart teaches from Hebrews, which was written to early believers who were thinking of abandoning their young faith in the face of difficulties. You’ll find time-tested, powerful advice in Stuart’s direct and powerful messages.
