Books have been released in hope to get to the readers- each telling a story.
Eg. "The Hole in our Holiness Goes Even Deeper"- this book shows how important sticking to your religion is, noting how switching religions can affect you deeply!
Eg. "The Need For Creeds"- It's not just that a creed (a public, established statement of a church's most important beliefs) is a useful tool for teaching doctrine, holding leaders accountable, defining the boundaries of church membership or cooperation among churches, and telling the world what a church stands for.
