Not I, But Christ

Overview

In the love David has for Saul we can see a faint but real foreshadowing of the love of Christ for us, even when we were his enemies. Saul was required by God to step down rather than become a better king, and to give way to David.

Overview

In the love David has for Saul we can see a faint but real foreshadowing of the love of Christ for us, even when we were his enemies. Saul was required by God to step down rather than become a better king, and to give way to David. In Not I, But Christ, Hession shows that the way to victory for us also is not in striving to be better people, but in allowing ourselves to be supplanted by Christ our true King.

ENDORSEMENTS: "This is devotional writing of a very high quality, and few will read it without feeling both the challenge and the reassurance that flow from it. Roy Hession's own spiritual pilgrimage, with its strong reflection of the blessing of the East Africa revival, could not be better summarized than by his title. He does not ask his reader to go where he had not gone himself, often at much pain and sacrifice, but always issuing in joy; and he does not ask us to offer God anything but the sin from which we ask to be cleansed." Rev. David Winter, pastor, author, former Head of Religious Broadcasting for the BBC. "Roy Hession's work comes to us as a refreshing breeze in the midst of so much arid academic theology and bare biblical exegesis. His method may strike contemporary ears as unusual, but, as he himself says, "It is not the illustration that matters so much as the thing illustrated." And the emphasis is always on the proper thing illustrated: the astounding grace of God to lost and needy people. No one can come away from reading this book without being drawn back again to the well springs of joy found in the love and grace of our Lord Jesus." Rev. Dr. Noel Due, D.Min., pastor, author, visiting lecturer at Adelaide College of Ministries, Australia, and honorary teaching fellow at Highland Theological College, Scotland.
