COMING TO TERMS WITH JESUS CHRIST encourages people to seek reconciliation with God by combining compelling testimony and convincing theology. The book includes a solid argument for the gospel using athletic analogies and many other concrete examples. Then it follows that up with testimonies from people such as former Steelers Tunch Ilkin, Craig Wolfley, Gary Anderson, Tony Dungy, Jon Kolb, Robin Cole and Mel Blount; former Pirates Sid Bream and Lee Tunnel; current Steeler quarterback Tommy Maddox and the former Miss Pennsylvania USA Stephanie Fallat. It stands as one of the few books that combines theology and testimony in such a readable fashion. It bridges the gap between theology and testimony, since many people get into testimonies that have no substance while others have only a cold theology.
It counters the false teaching Paul spoke about in II Timothy 4.3 when he talked about teachers and preachers who "tickle the ears", giving people only what they want to hear instead of the truth.
