Avalon Chronicles # 104: "Resources for Growth of Faith-Part I"

Avalon Chronicles #104: "Resources for Growth of Faith-Part 1"

by the Honorable Allen B. Clark            

Introduction: The United States military is an organization that engages in continuing education and training throughout one's service to our nation. For a military career at every rank there are new and advanced levels of training and growth. It is the same for our own personal education and growth for our faith walk. This message is divided into four sections over two parts for advancing levels of maturing and enhancement of personal faith comparable to stair-stepped levels of career military training. All of the following resources are in the personal libraries of my wife's or my own. Most have been read and studied by either or both of us. Others we have referred to often as helpful references.
