Overview

Life is uncertain! But in an ever-changing, tumultuous world there are still some things that have the mark of authenticity. J. D. Wetterling focuses on six of them from the mouth of Jesus that profoundly affect anyone regardless of race or religion (or lack of it!).

What are these unshakable truths? They are found in John's Gospel - and turn out to be profound revelations from the Son of God's own lips.

NO ONE can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (John 3:3) NO ONE can come to me unless the Father Who sent me draws him (John 6:44). NO ONE comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6). NO ONE takes it (life) from me, but I lay it down of my own accord (John 10:18). NO ONE can snatch them [true Christians] out of my hand (John.10:28). NO ONE will take away your joy (John 16:22b). The cultural epidemic of today's post-modern thought provokes a common disregard for the idea of absolute truth - people say that your truth is fine for you but mine is fine for me also - but no truth covers us both. Yet, the biblical statements examined here by Wetterling show that truth can be absolute, and forever.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
JD has written a book that gives a solid foundation of truths on which to build your life. How to personally know God, how to walk with Him, and how to view all of life in the light of this - what more important issues can be considered? I highly recommend this book! ~ Frank M. Barker Jr. (Pastor Emeritus, Briarwood Presbyterian Church)

Once again JD Wetterling has opened a door that I was afraid to open. For forty years I kept the door closed on the Vietnam event-two tours, 500 hours of air combat, medals and all that. I wanted to forget it and just get on with my life. But JD opened that door in Son of Thunder so I could deal with the reality of war and accept myself again. Now, in "No One...," he has opened another door, the courage to speak publicly about my faith. This little book will always be my companion when I travel to world mission fields. I am frequently asked to speak extemporaneously and now I have a ready text with a message for all peoples and all occasions. ~ Terry Kennedy (Executive Director of SERVE )

This is a short book but a powerful book showing the reality of the gospel and also the power of the gospel. You will do well to read it and also to pass along to others. It will strengthen the faith of believers and lead others to consider the claims of Christ in a very real and practical way. ~ Paul Kooistra (President, Erskine College and Seminary, Due West, South Carolina)

"No one is a more convincing advocate of the Gospel than a man deeply in love with the Savior, his Word and his world. JD Wetterling writes with a passion for each that no one can miss, nor should." ~ Bryan Chapell (Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois )

"You, like me, probably are often casting about for a readable book to put into the hands of a thoughtful, unconverted acquaintance. I plan on keeping copies with me, as I travel, to give to people who show an interest in talking about the gospel of Jesus Christ." ~ Joseph A. Pipa, Jr. (President, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Greenville, South Carolina)

"JD Wetterling clearly explains six key verses from the gospel of John that all Christians should take to heart. He emphasizes God's sovereignty and the assurance that deepens among all those who fully trust in Him." ~ Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of World magazine and author

"JD Wetterling has given us nothing less than the gospel in all its simplicity, beauty and glory. If this message is news to you, read this book and let God speak to your soul. If this is news you have heard a thousand times, allow yourself to hear it again, and let your faith be strengthened and renewed."

~ Tim Challies (Blogger at )

"When life is shaken down to its most essential properties, when we are confronted with life and death choices, what becomes most important? In his forceful book, 'No one...', JD Wetterling touches on the essential issues and questions that challenge us to make sense of life for the present as well as for eternity. JD writes like he lives: straight and honest, with a spirit of concern for everyone's eternal destiny. He flew many missions as a combat pilot, but none were as important to him as the one he has set out in this book. Now he is fighting for the souls of men and women to know the certainty of life, which is true and eternal. And he does this by pointing us all to Jesus Christ, the only Savior who can and does secure eternal life for all who believe." ~ Dominic Aquila, President, New Geneva Theological Seminary, Colorado Springs, Colorado

"The first time I read something that JD Wetterling had written—a guest column in The Wall Street Journal—I knew I had to get to know this man better. Indeed, because what he said in those few words was so compelling, I picked up the phone and called him, even though I'd never heard of him before. JD Wetterling knew then—and he still knows—how to capture the biggest ideas in life in a few arresting words, and he does that wonderfully in 'No one...'. He's the kind of writer who makes you yearn to sit down and talk some more with him after you've finished reading what he wrote." ~ Joel Belz, founder of World magazine

"JD Wetterling is right on target. In a book that can be read in a couple of hours, the absolute truth of the Bible is presented in a compelling manner. 'No one...' is a must read for the seeker and will be enjoyed by every believer as they are refreshed again with their salvation." ~ Mack Griffith, Chaplain, US Army
