We have a hope to hold on to and to hold out to others—how do we explain it? How do we love those who are suffering or speak to the overwhelmed? Do we show tenderness and compassion?
In today’s culture, truth claims are suspect. Many stand on the shaky ground of relativistic postmodernism. Many are deeply anxious. Yet Christians possess a treasure that cannot fade or disappoint—they should be unshakable.
What does this look like day by day? Hundreds of years ago, John Newton wrote a hymn containing timeless answers to questions and issues that press us. Now Rod Mays and K. Scott Oliphint delve into the gospel truth of “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken”—and the Scripture beyond it—to discover what we need in life, what should guide us, what faith in Christ looks like, how we should engage with others, and more. Includes discussion questions.
“The authors make vivid the two-way street of our communion with God and God's being with us. Their book is full of things that we today need urgently to take to heart.”
—J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College
