This book grabbed my attention because Lawson reviewed it and I respect him! This was a wonderful read which I am happy to share with my readers of my blog, Google plus and Amazon.
The theological precision was marvelous and I was touched deeply by the truths on each page.
It was hard for me to put it down and i read it every chance I could get,
Now I am going to use it a Bible study for myself.
In the opening chapter Jeremy hits right upon some truths of why we need Christ " We do not begin life as a believe in God."
This book humbled me as I saw God's gospel goodness, This just not just full of the authors ideas but verses were scattered as well as quotes from other men on every page!
Indeed this book teaches the doctrine of the scriptures, how one must be born of God and he must draw us to him.
I was broken down at such a loving saviors mercy towards sinners and I even cried ( yes that's how much this book moved me) especially as I read " there hangs the bleeding dying lamb..."
One night I stayed up hours to finish and my faith was deepened.
By the first chapter I knew this one was the book I would recommend to all I knew. This is one book everyone should read this year!
" We must cry to God who gives grace, to the humble.. Leave the saving to a sovereign and merciful God."
Each chapter has questions which I recommend using in your "quiet time."and then it would be perfect for a women's Bible study or used at family devotions.
I could go on and on about this book but most of all I hope it affects me in a lasting way.
For if one is in Christ he is a new being. See how life is when one is united in Christ.
"The spirit gives a new heart which turns to Christ in faith."
I loved the down to earth examples of every day people in chapter two as they hit hoe.
" We rise to newness of life in Him- ought we to be rid of our grace and clothed and set free to live as God intends. Unsearchable riches in Christ are not to be kept hidden.
For " electing love, a love which chose us when there was nothing in us worth choosing. it is a love vast as the ocean, loving kindness is full flood."
This book must be shared with all.
