Read an Excerpt


We do well to keep in mind that the person who is esteemed by God is not the one who waxes eloquent as he develops one biblical idea to the detriment of others, but the one who is humble and contrite in spirit and who "trembles" at God's word (Isa. 66:2). We may not always find it easy to reconcile the various truths of the Bible. Nevertheless, we must humbly keep in check both our desire for logical consistency and our outrage at truths we do not like. God will no doubt reward our search by giving us ever-greater insight into the relationships among the truths He has revealed about Himself. We may be quite sure that all that God does is, in fact, logical and self-consistent. But we should not presume to reject that which we have not had the patience or humility to accept on God's terms.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The story of God's gracious pursuit of the sinner leads us into many deep questions about the relation of His purposes to human inability.  His love to His holiness, and His mercy to His justice.  This book explores these matters biblically, theologically, and pastorally in a way that is both brave and helpful.
-David F. Wells, Andrew Mutch Distinguished Professor, Historical and Systematic Theology, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

One of the most winsome, discerning and compelling presentations of the seriousness of sin and the grace of God.  It is among the few potentially life-changing books -- to believe it and live a careless Christian life should be an impossibility.
-Iain H.Murray, Author and Conference Speaker
