"Christians With Pervasive Issues" by Annie Brown is a very small book of 54 pages. Pervasive actually means “existing in or spreading through every part of something”. As Christians we also have these issues that prevail through us. It’s what we do with these issues that count. When we have certain things that tend to be pervasive throughout we need to escape from letting it take over and spread throughout our life. Just as cancer can be a pervasive issue in our life, the main problem we look at as a Christian is sin. In the church, the body of Christ, there are many of these issues that affect each person: drugs, alcohol, adultery, selfishness, jealousies and many more. One can find a list of these in Gal. 5:19. These have been in the world since the beginning and many who have become Christians have at least one of these issues in their life and although they have accepted Christ they cannot easily find a solution to these pervasive issues.

Being a small book with each chapter being no more than four pages,it is a very fast read. What I got out of the book is that the time is drawing very near for the Lord to return for his people. None of us knows the time of the hour, but we should all be ready. By that I feel we all need to examine our self and make sure we are not carrying any excess baggage around with us. When the word convicts us we need to obey and quit making excuses for our behavior or any pervasive issues that keep us from walking in his victory. If we see someone who as a Christian has issues we need to help them along the path. I think this would be a good book not only for new Christians but also those of us who have been Christians for quite some time.
