“Doug’s books have been used in an incredible way in our church. Plus, they have made a big difference in my own marriage, family life and personal walk. I use them in teaching and preaching, and have made them available to my children. The thing I like about them is that they provide practical, reader-friendly tools and lessons not only on what to do, but how to do it. They get into your heart. I urge you to check out these materials. There’s subject matter that covers almost all areas of personal life.”
— Rick Cole, Senior Pastor, Capital Christian Center (Sacramento, CA)
