    I think one of the biggest problems facing the church of today i

    I think one of the biggest problems facing the church of today is legalism or a works based righteousness. It is perfectly natural -- the world we live in judges by performance. It is very hard to give up that mindset. Some of it is just our experiences and "worldly" influence and teachings and some of it is pride. We think we need to earn it -- and that we're capable.

    In reality, we need to humbly come before God and recognize that our righteousness is like rags. We need to recognize that He is the one who saves, equips, and makes us right with God.

    It's a powerful and important mindset. I think this book delivers the message very well and backs up points with Scripture. I appreciated what he was saying - but I wish the book didn't read so much like a textbook. It would have been better if it was more personal --- and included stories from real people about how their life was changed when they accepted true grace.

    Still, it's very good book and though I am thankful Chosen gave me a copy, it in no way influenced my review.

    By Grace Alone author: Derek Prince publisher  Chosen Books Jun


    By Grace Alone
    author: Derek Prince
    publisher  Chosen Books June 1st 2013

    Having had the privilege of working on another manuscript at the author's ministry headquarters in the English countryside, I looked forward with anticipation to reading a new compilation of Mr Prince's previously unpublished work.  It doesn't disappoint. 

    From his opening statement of purpose, readers are in for a bit of sod turning. "The ultimate purpose of this book is for you to discover what does and does not matter in your CHristian walk...a matter of critical importance...confusion on this issue is the root of most of our problems." What are the issues of religious law vs grace that need recognition in our own lives? In the Church? Have we relegated ourselves to lives of rules and regulations? Lives of striving? Analysis is followed with anti-dote. God's gift of grace.

    Mr Prince leads us into a comprehensive and life-changing understanding of grace beginning with Romans 10.4, "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes." With this fresh perspective we begin to live the life of liberty and freedom that God's gift of grace provides. Mr Prince goes on to develop this in its entirety for full benefit and release from living a life of religious constraints.

    What I love about Derek Prince's writing is his ability to distill his thorough knowledge of difficult topics into accessible language that ensures our understanding and ability to apply the principles learned. The application of those truths is up to us. 

    By Grace Alone provides us with seeds of grace we can choose to plant in the soil of our heart. The impetus of the Holy Spirit will bring it to fruition. Let us keep the soil clear of religious weeds that will try to choke out the new growth. And let us pray for fresh rainfall to increase the growth of grace presented via this excellent new release from Derek Prince...
