    As a writer of Contemporary Fiction as well as non-fiction and a

    As a writer of Contemporary Fiction as well as non-fiction and as a servant within the body of Christ I see a lot of confusion in Christiandom. “The Truth About the lordship of Christ” by John MacArthur will assist followers of Jesus in understanding why they believe as well as what should not be believed The basics of faith are adressed with a substantial amount of scripture to support the information presented. Despite being only 132 pages the discussion on what it means to be a follower of Christ is quite extensive.
    I was very pleased to read how John MacArthur addresses the issue of God’s love for all people not just believers in the beginning of the book. I suspect that many will avoid reading this book or take some things out of context primarily because as with many of his teachings “The Truth About the lordship of Christ” is without apology. Often we ignore unpleasantries found in the Bible:
    “Committing your life to follow Jesus Christ means you would not only forsake your family; if need be, you’d give your life.” (page 41)
    There are so many churches that label themselves as “Christian” that teach: spirituality or deny the deity of Jesus making it easier for people to live lifestyles that do not line up with scripture. By addressing Christian beliefs such as: justification, salvation, sanctification and holiness as well as confession and repentance, “The Truth About the lordship of Christ”, will lead the believer to making personal adjustments in his Christian walk.
    I recommend this book.
    A complimentary copy of this book was provided to me by Book Sneeze in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    I highly recommend The Truth About The Lordship of Christ by John MacArthur to all Christian readers. This book will appeal to anyone who loves God and Jesus Christ and holds a Christian worldview. The author focuses on Christian living, sanctification, submission to God's will, confession, repentance, and holy living. In today's world, where the church looks so unchristian and so ugly with all its easy acceptance of sin, this book challenges readers to be real Christians, not just Christians by name. Live the life you claim to live. MacArthur encourages readers to stop living hypocritically and to start bearing fruit as evidence of their repentance. If you are truly saved, you should be producing fruit as evidence of this salvation (but not as a means to get saved). This book touches on salvation and our eventual place in heaven with rewards for our labors.

    This is a short book but it is a quick direct read. It focuses on matters that are important to all Christians. No fluff in this book. Direct and to the point. Easy to read.

    Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher for this unbiased review. I am not required to give positive reviews.

    Wonderful read full of scripture quotes

    I enjoyed this book very much. I am a born again Christian and actually found it hard to believe that anybody who has been blessed as one of His elect would ever doubt His Lordship or want to deny His Lordship, however, if you do or ever have, this is a very important book for you to read. Thank you John MacArthur for another wonderful book based on scripture.

    When you select a book from John MacArthur you can expect it to theologically sound. This book is certainly that. Usually his books are . . . a little more challenging than I found this one. Maybe that's because the subject matter is both difficult for many and important enough that he wanted to make it more easily understood by everyone.

    I think the title can be misunderstood. People could read it and think it's going to be about Jesus. It's really about us and how we relate to Christ -- what our role as Christians and disciples is. That is important and often misunderstood in this era of me first, what feels good to me, what pleases me, what I like, what I think, and so on. We are so centered on ourselves that it can be incredibly difficult to give the reigns to someone else.

    I don't agree with everything said by anyone but I think this is a book that should be in every church library to help believers understand what is meant by Jesus being the Lord of their lives.

    I was given this book by Thomas Nelson as part of the Book Sneeze program but it in no way influenced my review.
