What People are Saying About This

Doug Scott

"Profound and haunting. Don't read this book if you enjoy the casual Christian life. As for me, I'll never 'smell' sin the same way again."

Sin stinks. Really! But we often see sin more casually. Maybe we imagine it like a giant carnival. True, there are some weird carnies to avoid, but you can also have time of your life! Or maybe we imagine sin like breaking some dusty old rule in the classroom of life. Yeah, so, I'm passing notes and throwing paper airplanes, but what's the big deal? Well, despite our perceptions, Jesus uses some very powerful - even grotesque - images when talking about the seriousness of sin: a 2x4 splitting your face, sawing off body parts, plucking out your eye. Everts walks his readers through some of Jesus' descriptions of sin, reminding us of the thick stench that sin leaves behind. B
