Most people think that the cause of modern social problems; from divorce to homelessness, conflicts to physical fights are limited to poverty, hatred, jealousy, greed, abuse, infidelity and indifference; yet they overlook one crucial aspect- the absence of genuine Friendship. If genuine friendship exists among the human race there will be no such evil. Genuine friendship is a sure refuge from all harsh conditions of life, it keeps the young out of trouble; it comfort and aid the old in their weakness and it incites those in the prime of life to noble deeds. Friendship is the basis for happiness and it is the only glue that can stick the world together. it takes time to develop and cannot be artificially created. "Worth A Friend" has been written to elucidate more on how friendship can flourish, yielding lifelong blissful union. It recommends carrying out a personal "friendship audit" in order to identify essential amenities and to sharpen each relationship in line with its strength. It is scored in conformity with the modern lifestyle; explaining the supposed and practical aspect of the relationship as far as possible, in a simple and ample approach. IT is intended to convey indispensable knowledge for the achievement of a relationship and empowering the reader with crucial gears used in the progress of healthy relationships

Glimpses from the Life of Joseph - From the Pit to the Pinnacle
Self Help & Motivational
InsightHouse Publishiers
Joseph is one of the favourite Bible characters for the many people who identify their lives to that of his. The struggles that Joseph overcame, namely, a broken family and betrayal by his brothers, the pit, slavery, removal from his home and country at seventeen years of age, Mrs Potiphar, prison and cupbearer, represent the struggles of many Christians today. In this book, you will find some fresh perspectives on Joseph's life. The author has not just highlighted biblical principles from the life of Joseph but he has paid attention to the context of the Bible narrative for a better appreciation of joseph's life. The author has exposed some perspectives of Jewish tradition and the original ancient Near East socio-cultural setting in which the story is situated. The book seeks to encourage seekers that God is sovereign and he created humans for a divine purpose. While the process to the purpose may be unknown, you can patiently trust in His divine providence and power to work through everything for your good. Your current condition is not your final destination. Joseph overcame all odds and rose from the pit to the pinnacle.
