The problems of society at large translate into feelings of anxiety, frustration, and insecurity for the individual. The shakier his world gets, the more intense his search for stability and security becomes. Thus the interest in "roots," and the push back to "basics." When the building is about to collapse, it is the foundation that must be checked...In simple yet eloquent terms, Dr. Arrington brings the scriptural truths of 1 Timothy to bear on current questions concerning worship, leadership, and family. He points out that the foundation of a successful and secure life can be maintained through fidelity to the Word of God.
