Understanding People

Have you ever stopped at a high mountain overlook to view the road or valley below? It puts you in an advantageous place to understand both the problems and successes you and others experience in reaching that pinnacle. Understanding People is a mountaintop book. It places you in a position to view human development in such a way that you more readily understand the progress of people as they journey on the highway of life. Grasping its content will help you better relate to people in ministry as well as in your own family.


The book explores a brief introduction to human development from a Christian perspective. To view people in terms of their physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual characteristics contributes valuable insight for sharing the truths of God. The common stages of development are presented in eleven easy-to-read chapters with practical applications for ministry.
