Harrison Authors Help Readers Cultivate Good Relationship With Christ

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

In their new book on Christian living, “Desperate Dependency,” authors J. Kirk and Melanie D. Lewis help readers to cultivate a good relationship with Jesus Christ.

Kirk and Melanie Lewis note that even Christians often fail to recognize God’s plan to complete their lives. The Heavenly Father has designed people for a relationship that is desperately dependent on Jesus. Only when they embrace this relationship will they find satisfaction and a way to fill the void in their hearts. “Desperate Dependency” identifies the deceptions people believe in and points their searching souls to Christ, the only one who is relevant and sufficient to deal with the intricacies of life’s problems and pains.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher or on boostore websites.

Kirk and Melanie Lewis have ministered as a team for decades, challenging people to an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ. As counselors, they are committed to using biblical principles to facilitate healing and liberate weary souls from emotional bondage. Their counsel is founded upon the belief that Jesus Christ is the center of one’s well-being, that the Bible is the authority, and that psychology is the applied aspect of theology.
