Editorial Reviews

Review

''Elyse Fitzpatrick has given us a helpful, encouraging, and stimulating book that explores the practical impact of God's great love for his people in every aspect of Christian living. Her rich insights into God's revealed truth will certainly equip and inspire Christians to better fulfill their chief end of glorifying and enjoying him forever!''
Carol J. Ruvolo, author of Grace to Stand Firm, Grace to Grow, and No Other Gospel

''The Spirit of God seems to be initiating a widespread recovery of the gospel and its implications. Because He Loves Me is another and welcome indication that fresh gospel breezes are blowing. If you love the gospel of Jesus Christ, you'll love what Elyse Fitzpatrick has written in this book.''
Donald S. Whitney, Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life

''What Elyse Fitzpatrick has written is inspirational and overflows with practical application that pushes me to take the gospel into the otherwise private corners of my life.''
Edward T. Welch, Counselor and Faculty Member, Christian Counseling and Education Foundation

''Elyse Fitzpatrick reminds us why the gospel is such good news-not only when we hear it for the first time, but even after a lifetime of familiarity with the message. This is a moving exposition of gospel truth showing how the doctrinal content of our faith is not merely dry, academic stuff, but wonderfully personal and practical truth.''
--Phillip R. Johnson, Executive Director, Grace to You

''Many Christian books focus our gaze on the difficult duties of the Christian life, leaving us either triumphant in self-righteous pride or burdened down with a backpack full of guilt. Elyse Fitzpatrick shows us how to lay down that burden of guilt at the cross and put to death that self-righteousness, not merely once but daily as we glory increasingly in the gospel.''
--Iain M. Duguid, Professor of Old Testament, Grove City College

'Because He Loves Me will provide hope and a desperately needed supply of 'spiritual oxygen' to many Christians who have lost sight of what they have and who they are in Christ and are struggling to live a life they can never live apart from him.''
Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author; Radio Host, Revive Our Hearts --Reviews --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

The author gives you plenty to think through and presents the gospel through out the book.

Elyse Fitzpatrick reminds us of truly how marvelous the love of Christ is for us and what His sacrificial gift means for us each and every moment of the day.
Tracy Almanza
Our only work is to believe, to look to the crucified and risen Christ, and even that is something God works in us first.

Format: Hardcover
In her latest book, Because He Loves Me, Elyse Fitzpatrick asks an interesting question: In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind? You may be wondering, how is that possible? Do you remember the biblical account of Mary and Joseph's return to Nazareth following their celebration of Passover in Jerusalem? After a day's journey, they realized that Jesus was not with them. They hurried back to the city and found him in the temple, speaking with the teachers. Fitzpatrick uses this story to illustrate what many Christians do in their relationships with Jesus. "By definition, we Christians joyously celebrate our Passover Lamb, our salvation with Jesus, but then, like his parents, we eagerly head on back to Nazareth, back to living out our beliefs without a conscious awareness or acknowledgment of his presence. Of course, we assume that he is somewhere nearby. We haven't felt his absence because we're so preoccupied with living life for him" She goes on to clarify, "What I am saying is that once we've been saved, once we've understood and accepted the message of the gospel, the person and work of the Redeemer becomes secondary to what we're focused on -- living the Christian life." Because He Loves Me is written for the Christian who thinks the gospel is just for "getting saved," who knows he is supposed to be different, but isn't seeing the transformation he expected, or who wonders about the difference Jesus is supposed to make in his daily life. Fitzpatrick teaches Christians how the gospel is central to everything.

The book is divided into two parts: How God's Love Transforms Our Identity and How God's Love Transforms Our Life. In the first section, Fitzpatrick does something very interesting.

Format: Hardcover
Have you ever been driving home, surrounded by clouds, lost in thought, barely seeing the road ahead of you, when suddenly the sun breaks through with stunning brilliance? Or have you ever seen a familiar word in print, and suddenly it looks strange, unfamiliar, as if you are seeing it for the first time? Elyse Fitzpatrick's new book has that effect on me.

I've been a Christian for over thirty years. I have read alot of Christian books. I know my Bible. I know how to live the Christian life expected of me. So I trudge dutifully through my days, head down, thoughts immersed in the crisis of the hour. My Christian beliefs hover somewhere overhead, clean and complete, somewhat disconnected from the messy ground where I spend my days.

In Because He Loves Me, I find the truth about Jesus Christ, who he is and what he has done for me, pulled out of the sky and onto the street where I live. Elyse connects the facts of the gospel--the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of the Son of God--not just with the problems I face today, but with the ways I think and speak about those problems. It startles me awake and makes me see my Savior again, for the first time. I am surprised, helped, and filled with wonder.

Format: Hardcover
This is the phrase that Elyse Fitzpatrick uses to describe herself as an adopted daughter of the most Holy God and it is a phrase that has helped bring a new love and thankfulness for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how this truth impacts and changes my daily life. I cannot tell you how many times, as I was reading this book, I would speak out loud, "why didn't anyone teach me this?"

I'm 37 years old. I grew up in the church and was "saved" as a child. I attended a Christian college. I have a Masters of Divinity (something I find hard to imagine bestowing on anyone) from a seminary. I worked as a chaplain in an oncology hospital for a little over 8 years and I'm just now starting to get the Gospel. My intent is not to run down the local church or its educational institutions, but the truth is, the doctrines of grace were never shared with me. Many years after seminary, I learned of the rich heritage of the doctrines of grace in my own denomination that sadly have been replaced with works and self-help.

I am married to a wonderful man that I met in seminary. I have a 21 month old daughter and I stay home and do my best to try to take care of them. When I quit work to become a mother, my life in Christ truly began. I went through a year long depression following the birth of my daughter and experienced the "darkness that could be felt." After a horrifying weekend on anti-depressants, I emailed the head of the women's discipleship at our church and she began coming to my home once a week and still does. I had never been discipled before. (This has been more of "church" than anything else I have experienced.) I have theology degrees and ministry experience, but had never been discipled the way Titus 2 commands. This book is priceless. Every woman I know will have a copy. Elyse, thank you for taking the time to write this bedrock book.

Next to the Bible this has been the best book I've ever read. It's been transformational in my walk with the Lord and have been highly recommending it to people. Even if it takes you 3 yrs to go through it because you're too busy to read - do it!

Elyse, I'm thankful that God had moved on your heart to write "Because He Loves Me".

I have been feeling like my mind has been altered in the last few months, maybe it started around December last year...I have no concept of time so it could have been 5 years ago. Anyway, I was having a hard time putting into words how my thinking was changing, how it was impacting my life, and how it was changing the way I see myself and also how I counsel people. God's love was becoming central in my thinking and His saving grace, the gospel, became like my heartbeat. It was there before, I was mindful of it, talking about it, teaching about it, but it wasn't central in my mind. I think my weakness, fear, dependency, and pain has helped me to see the Gospel as Glorious, my Savior as Father, and my failure as His strength. I started reading your book a few days ago, and thought, "This is what I've been talking about...this is it...this is how I feel". It was so great to connect the dots. I loved how you weaved Scripture together in the first chapter, and I was either tearing up or overcome with thankfulness as I was reading it.
