Behold what Christ has done.
That is just what this book was. For interview with author go to link .
We live busy lives and the story of Christ death and resurrection has been heard so many times, that i fear at times we do not ponder and marvel at it.
Thabiti's mission in this book is simple--to get Christians to gaze at Jesus, especially in his death and resurrection. We can often make things so complicated, but sometimes we must reorient our schedule to contemplate the two events which turned the whole world upside down. This book puts us back into worshiping Jesus!
The book is split into five sections, which are question found in the Biblical books of Matthew, I Corinthians, and Luke. They are: Is There No Other Way?, Why Have You Forsaken Me?, Where, O Death, Is Your Victory?, Why Do You Look for the Living among the Dead?, and Do You Know These things? Each one was great!
I really enjoyed reading this book and finished it in a few days. It's a mere 100 pages and the writing is very clear and simple to digest. I highly recommend it. It powerfully brings forward the gospel with many of its implications, and it would be a great read for just about anyone at any time, and I will read again many times.The only way for us to please and glorify God is by picking up our cross daily and following Jesus. In Gethsemane, Jesus shows us not only what God has done for man but also what man owes God” (18). so many lessons to learn!: http://youtu.be/M8rD3dj8BpU
Thanks for letting me review this book!
