bookshelves: theology
Recommended for: those I love; those who will wrestle with these ideas
Read in July, 2007

God has used this book to transform my life. Of course it is only one of many things He used and I cannot promise the same results to you, but is is a very worth-while read. It helped me to see that my view of the gospel was way too self-focused. It shifted my theology and made it way more God focused, and the more I meditate on the delight of God in Himself the more I delight in delighting in Him!
But this book is not for the faint hearted, or the uninterested... I mean I wrestled, pondered, meditated, and rejoiced. It's one of my all time favorites.
