Once again a book crosses my path that made me think a little bit, and even reflect on my past, contemplate my present, and plan my future.  I read a book on money!  I have read the Christian argument for giving from every possible angle in the Christian circles.  Some people will quote lots of Old Testament passages like Malachi 3:8-12 and other related ones and say that God absolutely commands that you give 10% of your income or else you may not even be a Christian.  Some people say that giving is not even required to live a Christian life.  Like most other doctrines the truth lies somewhere in between these two poles.

Grace for You

We are all prodigals.  We run from Christ, righteousness, and holiness.  But in this message, unlike usual, I do not want to dwell on that.  I want to focus on the response.  In a way, this will be a review of a little book that I just received from John MacArthur entitled Grace for You, which is a summary of the A Tale of Two Sons: The Inside Story of a Father, His Sons, and a Shocking Murder.

Suppose there is a book endorsed as a having "the potential to do our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his." We would assume the presence of a book that Christians would want to flock to for some keen insights. Well, that book is being flocked to, but with some concern by some Christians. I, personally, am quite concerned about the new best-selling book "The Shack" by William P. Young.
