Brief Description

Even though Jesus promised to give us abundant life when we connect our lives to his, most Christians do not experience the fullness of that life. Why? Because we allow various roadblocks to sidetrack us in our journey. Consequently, Christians stumble through their lives, knowing what they should do but not knowing exactly how to do it.

17 Roadblocks on the Highway of Life and How to Move Around Them by noted author and pastor Brian Harbour considers many of the common roadblocks which create unwanted detours in our lives. Through scriptural models, Harbour outlines specific strategies for implementing lessons of the Bible that can aid us in moving around these blocks and back onto the roads of our lives.

Specific lessons consider the roadblocks of ambition, depression, guilt, loneliness, and many others.
