Overcoming Fear of Death - Richard J. Gehman

Overcoming Fear of Death explains the riches of salvation that are found in Jesus Christ which, when embraced by faith, will deliver every Christian believer from the fear of sickness and death.

For many years, scores of pastors and church leaders expressed the need for a comprehensive book on salvation according to Scripture in the African context. To the knowledge of the Author, this has never before been done. Other pastors shared their belief that Christians often lapse back into African Traditional Religion during times of sickness and death because they lack a full grasp of their salvation. Being insecure in their relationship with Jesus Christ and not understanding the priceless privileges they have as children of God, they panic when trouble arises and lapse back into their old religious beliefs and practices out of fear.

This book provides biblical teaching that will address this two-fold need to strengthen the Christian Church in Africa. Overcoming Fear of Death is written for the layperson who knows little of their faith. For the biblically trained reader, this book will deepen their understanding of salvation and strengthen their faith.
