Chapter One starts off with a description of the types of people that Crabb envisions would pick up this book to read it. He identifies four initial categories of folk:
1. Those who are trying hard to do what the Bible commands but feel frustrated.
2. Those who are doing quite well and feel content and happy most of the time.
3. Those who are hardened.
4. Those who are in positions of Christian leadership.
Crabb’s short responses to these categories, in order, are: There’s hope; there’s more; there’s life; there’s love.
Do any of these categories resonate with you? Maybe you can see yourself in one or more – maybe even all of them, or maybe none seem to fit.
So tell us, where do you fall?
