Our Unmet Needs: God Has an Answer For...

Charles F. Stanley, Author Thomas Nelson Publishers $19.99 (253p) ISBN 978-0-8407-9143-6
Popular Southern Baptist pastor Stanley (Enter His Gates) contends that we all have unmet needs for love and acceptance, and for financial and emotional stability. Using Philippians 4:19, ""My God will supply all your needs according to His riches... "" the author asserts that God provides totally for all our needs. Stanley says that people's addictions are ways that they try to meet the needs they have, and that many people avoid meeting their true needs. For him, God's purpose in meeting our needs is ""essential for our well-being and wholeness... essential to our deepening relationship with God... and essential to a positive and enriching relationship with other human beings."" The author notes that human sinfulness creates the necessity of having a right relationship with God. Throughout, Stanley stresses that the most basic need we have is a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Once this relationship is established, all other needs can be met. Stanley's book will prove popular among his followers. (Mar.)
