Having read this one Kindle edition from Multnomah Books, I would be hesitant to buy another Kindle edition from the publisher.
By the way, if you’re from Multnomah and are looking for someone to do Kindle conversions, feel free to get in touch.It appears that they took the print edition, converted it to the Kindle format, and posted it without any proofreading.There are numerous cases where words that needed to be broken across lines in the print edition are still hyphenated in the Kindle edition, or where characters that apparently didn’t convert properly are either missing or display strangely in the Kindle edition.Joshua Harris, the former lead pastor of Covenant Life Church, the founding church of Sovereign Grace Ministries in Gaithersburg, Maryland, is now apologizing to Christians he hurt when he advised against dating in his best-selling 1997 book,"Part of the reason this has been so hard for me is that I have so much of my identity tied up in these books.It's what I'm known for," Harris told writer Ruth Graham earlier this month in Vancouver, British Columbia, in a report for Slate."It's like, well, crap, is the biggest thing I've done in my life this really huge mistake?The first step is to change your attitude toward relationships. But in Ephesians -24 (New Living Translation), Paul shows us how we can transform our lives: "...throw off your old evil nature and your former way of life, which is rotten through and through, full of lust and deception.
