About the Book

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being sinful and worthless and 10 being absolutely perfect and righteous, how do you rate yourself, really?  On that same scale, how does God rate you?  The Alpha Series is a systematic study of all that God has done to make you a 10 and a course on how you can begin to see yourself the way God sees you.

Knowing what God thinks about us gives us a choice in what we are going to believe about ourselves.  Believing what God says he made us to be allows us the hope we need to cope with life.  The joyful, confident expectation about our own future gives us the liberty to care about others. 

The Alpha Series  may be used as a counseling model, a discipleship course, a faith based recovery tool, and a training curriculum.  Along with the companion workbook it is suitable as basic curricula for all types of study groups and recovery programs.
