If you want to explore key Christian tenets in a fresh and imaginative format, this is the book for you. Ross Cunningham deftly juxtaposes core truths to expose and address some of the tensions arising from them. The book examines apparent contradictions in the divine nature, then in the experience of salvation and concludes with apparent contradictions in the characteristics of being a Christian.
So, for instance, we learn how God is three and one, how Jesus is God and man, how Christianity involves both perseverance and preservation and how the Christian can be confident and humble. The author ably demonstrates how these seemingly opposing theological aspects hold together when Scripture is correctly examined. The start of the 23 sections have striking illustrations which cause us to ponder these paradoxes. After reading this book I was enlightened and thankful for such a great salvation.
This is a smart book for a smart age, attractively presented and of great use to both new and more experienced Christians and also for explaining the gospel to non-Christians.
This book is available to purchase from Christian Focus.
