Perspectives for Life

Minibooks - Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation

CCEF publishes nearly 200 minibooks that address a wide range of everyday issues like marriage, parenting, mental health, and much more. Each minibook is small enough for the average reader to finish in less than thirty minutes and are filled with practical gospel-centered counsel.

Many of these minibooks can be found in the entryway to the church. They are free. Why not take a few home to read for yourself or to share with family and friends?

Hint - Before visiting the website at the button "Available Minibooks" located below, watch this 14 second video.

The books are tagged by subject.  The video shows you how to limit the display.
