Many people are in the Valley of Decision. They've relied on their works to get this far, but their salvation is in question because they have not truly given in to God and accepted the gift of grace from Jesus. If this is you, I pray that this book will challenge you to make your decision for Christ. We'll look at X, and Y and Z, and by the end, I hope that you'll be convinced that the gospel is about Jesus' gift, not your works, but also that your salvation is worth fighting for, and worth making hard decisions for.

Slaton gives us, in this work, a fantastic devotional to help spur our faith along through the difficulties of this world. To be honest, my presupposition in approaching this book was that it would be theologically intellectual by nature. Having a theology background, I was preparing myself for doctrine and philosophical interaction. For a moment there was some disappointment when I realized that was not going to be in this book. However, that disappointment quickly dissipated. This book is a devotional if I’ve ever seen one, and Slaton has done a good job with melding scripture and anecdotal stories to lead the reader through the very tough topic of making that continual choice of choosing God or the world, committed obedience or prideful freedom. In my opinion, the backbone of this story resides in the personal testimony of Slaton which comes through in most every chapter. The transparency that she shows brings a life to the message which lifts this book above most other devotionals that say similar things. Due to this, I would recommend this book as a must read, and applaud Slaton for including some tough stories of herself. Good Work!
