In this book, Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson examines the wonder of divine grace. You’ll get seven looks at amazing grace, each structured around a stanza of the hymn “O How the Grace of God Amazes Me.”
Taking the time to thoroughly examine the theology of the cross, Moltmann explores the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. He seeks to revolutionize the concept of God and make his theology of hope more concrete in the eyes of the reader.
Burnout is inevitable. Apart from the sustaining presence of God, the pressures of ministry are more than any man or woman can bear. Learn from Elijah, Moses, David, Jeremiah, Peter, Paul and the Lord Jesus. This book on Christian ministry burnout will help you, so that, like Jesus, you will be able to declare to the Father, "I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do."
Whether you are a pastor, a missionary, or church leader, this book is a "must read." If you are struggling with burnout now, you will be greatly encouraged. If your heart is free and your ministry is going well, you will receive strong protection for the days ahead.
"Whether they know it or not, every Christian is in fulltime ministry—at home, at school, at recreation, and at work.

It examines the biblical basis for justification by faith alone and then compares that with Roman Catholicism and the New Perspective on Paul.
|Author||Francis A. Schaeffer|
"As one of the foremost evangelical thinkers of the twentieth century, Francis Schaeffer long pondered the fate of declining Western culture.
