Has the world really changed since Paul's letter to the Philippian Church? M. L. Gillis's Upward Living in a World Gone Mad reveals that those times are much the same now as then. And that Paul's solution is timelessly the same for us, today. As in the days of the Church of Philippi, it is possible to live a surrendered life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The introduction presents a clear picture of the difficulties under Nero's evil rule. It was in this Mad World that Christians were being persecuted, imprisoned and even martyred. Sin and evil rulers are still rampant in the world. This Study Guide takes the reader step by step through Paul's letter, explaining scripture and asking straight questions for individual assessments. Clear directives are given for repentance, how to walk out the choices that bring spiritual life and receiving Surrender's fruit, humility, rejoicing and peace. The author is very effective in giving an informative history of the Roman period and relaying Paul's practical steps to living a Christian life. It is a blessing and delight to read quotes from Pastor D. Evans. The journey of personal questions and scripture study make the book of Philippians relevant to my trusting Jesus and submitting to Him in every arena of my life. Being in a daily devotional form gives me an ongoing challenge to apply the truth. This also helps me to continue evaluating my choices and experiencing the benefits. The meditation & memorization of God's Word sends it deeper into my heart and mind. The Holy Spirit opens my eyes. The revelations and blessings from yielding to the Lord Jesus compel me to yield more. This is an excellent work book if you are serious about developing a closer relationship with Jesus Christ a Lord of your life. It is written to be easily understood with simple questions that sometimes require hard answers. Ms. Gillis presents a no excuse plan to live an overcoming Godly life in an ungodly World Gone Mad. Regardless of your circumstances, surrendering to Jesus truly is Upward Living.

I did this amazing study with eight ladies from my neighborhood. All of them were in crises. As we went through this study God did a powerful work in our lives! Our situations were difficult, but not more difficult than the jailed Apostle Paul, who proclaimed, "Rejoice in the Lord always...!" As the weeks went by the Lord knit us all together. Near the last week of the study, we all pulled together to deal with a particularly tragic situation. As always God was faithful. We had new strength and insight, because we had completed this course. Thank you to M.L. Gillis for putting together this piece of God's heart for His people. And, the leadership guide was perfect...excellent study! Thank you!"
WOW! What can be added to this study? Marcia has given a word by word description of a time that brought about a revolution in His honor, by the our Brother Paul. In this study she points out how we as Christians may have come along way in a world that has yet to escape the madness that remains. We learn the words that saved us and why they mean so much to us. I recommend to all of those that want to catch a glimpse of why Paul relishes his works in us.
