Resting in His Redemption: The Basis of Prayer and the Christian Lifeby James Gills
The Scriptures teach clearly that God desires to live in intimate fellowship and communion with mankind. He wants us to enjoy His love, peace, joy, and companionship and to rest in His redemption, experiencing the perfect harmony and contentment and fulfillment of purpose for which He created us. God’s original purpose for creating mankind was simply for us
The Scriptures teach clearly that God desires to live in intimate fellowship and communion with mankind. He wants us to enjoy His love, peace, joy, and companionship and to rest in His redemption, experiencing the perfect harmony and contentment and fulfillment of purpose for which He created us. God’s original purpose for creating mankind was simply for us to enjoy relationship with Him, the kind of fellowship that the first couple, Adam and Eve, enjoyed in the Garden of Eden, when God walked with them in the cool of the evening (Gen. 3:8).
Then, sin entered the human experience and separated all mankind from that divine fellowship. But when we place our faith in Christ’s sacrifice for our sin, we are redeemed by the blood of Christ and justified in the sight of God. But that is not the end of the matter; it is only the beginning. God’s intention is that we be completely restored--spirit, soul, and body--to the divine rest found in His redemption, He wants us to experience that mystery of intimate communion with our Creator/Redeemer.
In this book we will discuss four important aspects of fulfilling the deepest desire of the human heart--to know God personally and intimately in the way God’s great, loving heart intended. To know the love of God that brings true heart contentment, we need to walk in the understanding of these divine principles:
The biblical basis for all prayer is resting in His redemption.
The biblical basis for all Christian living is resting in His redemption.
The biblical basis for total forgiveness is resting in His redemption.
The biblical basis for divine contentment is resting in His redemption.
Your life can be transformed when you allow Him to make them a reality to your heart. The love of God can fill your heart and make you a victorious lover of the Christ. You will be ruined for any lesser, temporal pleasure or love once you taste more deeply the wonders of resting in His redemption.

This book will really kinda pull you out your shell and teach you how to build a great relationship with god
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.
This book fills you with the absolute presence of God, as you read Dr. Gills inspired words, revealing how being intimate with God, our Savior, brings a total relinquishing of oneself to Him. Each page filled my Spirit, and increased my desire to love my Lord, and KEEP Him alive in my daily walk. Dr. Gills is truly inspired by the Holy Spirit in all of His books.
