Have you ever been in a dense fog? I can remember times when I thought I would never find my way out. Then, without warning, the fog begins to break; I could see patches of blue sky, and I could actually see my surroundings! It was wonderful.
That’s how I felt after reading Scott’s manuscript. It was refreshing. It was insightful. I saw patches of blue sky and my surroundings!
Chapter after chapter I discovered fresh biblical insights that revealed God’s truth in man’s context. The Scripture says, “Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.” Scott gives glory to the Son in this book, and there is a certain liberating element contained in these pages—an element to set one free from the fog of perceptions and misperceptions of being a believer in Christ.
Christ is truth. Truth is simple and profound. It is cold steel; yet, at the same time, it is healing. “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”
I believe that Christians bound in legalism who read this book will have an “ah hah” moment. I believe that Christians who read these pages and struggle with religion or church tradition will be released into new found freedoms. I believe that Christians who are living their life according to what is expected of them by other believers will be set free. Well-meaning individuals who have modeled and taught with true sincerity yet found themselves trapped in the periphery of following Christ without discovering the heart of relationship of following Him will now have a tool to help them get out of the fog and see their true surroundings. Through this writing I believe others will find a life of freedom and liberty in Christ.
I recommend this book to you not only because I have reviewed the chapters but because I know the author. His speech and lifestyle align themselves together. You will benefit from your reading of this book, and its value will not diminish because of worn out pages.
