Michael Horton is my favorite Christian thinker and writer. Most of what I have read from him has been in the Modern Reformation magazine of which he is editor in chief. I have started in on his books now, this being the first one. I loved this book! The ideas he puts forth in it are challenging to me in a very good way. I was so encouraged and liberated.
