It is a quick read, but I found myself pondering each chapter bringing up the content while talking with friends.As ...

    The message of Ephesians jumps off the page in new ways as I read it side by side with this book. Alive in Him is like a commentary of sorts but full of references to old and New Testament scripture, details about what things mean and also personal illustrations and application. The author dissects ...

    C.S. Lewis said it well. Theologically, we often resemble little kids, happy to live in the ignorance of mud pies because we’ve never stood on the sandy boundary that slopes into oceanic depths. This is a critique with teeth, and it bites. But sometimes we need to be told to theologically grow ...
