    Entering into the Experience of Resting in God's Redemption

    Dr. James P. Gills, MD has a unique way of distilling information into one concise summary statement: the essence of a page in context, a chapter's concept, or a book's content. He capsules the theme of his book "Resting in His Redemption: The Basis of Prayer and the Christian Life" in this way: "The essence of the entire Bible is the divine love story of God reaching down to man to redeem him back to Himself." Real life examples, heart warming stories, and relevant illustrations capture the imagination, engage the intellect, and challenge the reader to better understand this Biblical concept. I found enjoyment in the challenging quotations from Oswald Chambers, Charles Spurgeon, John Newton, and other classical writers as well as contemporary Christian leaders like Charles Colson, R. T. Kendall, and many others. The use of sidebars, inserts, and topical headings produce an eye appealing, reader friendly format. Thought provoking questions for personal meditation provide the means of reflection, assimilation, and application of the amazing Biblical truths introduced within the content of each chapter. These same questions can be adapted for use as discussion material when in study groups or classes. Gill's writing is well organized, Biblically based, and masterfully articulate. He writes with clarity and conviction. "Resting in His Redemption" is relevant, instructive, and encouraging. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's guidelines. As Reviewed for Midwest Book Review.
