This book explains very well what does it mean to be justified in Christ as well the LOST doctrine of regeneration. It clearly shows that salvation is a super-natural work of God whereby the Christian is a completely new creation. It also contains a lot of Scriptural references.

Thsi book explains the whole crux of our Christian faith. The whole reason for God giving us his word and Jesus sacrifice is for our re-birth through Christ who is our propitiation in order that we will be justified.

I have found nothing that explains this more clearly than this book.

I believe this book to be a very wonderful explanation of mans natural disposition apart from Christ.

I believe it is suited Christians from all walks of life, for the most it answers a lot of questions.

This is an excellent read. It pointed me to Scriptures that helped answer some of the many questions I had.

I don't know a better way to commend this book but to say barring the Bible and Pilgrims Progress there is not a book I have read more times.

“For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:3-7” 0 likes
