Book Description

The great concern of the author is to lead us back to our Christian basics, to take back the Biblical view which has been severely distorted by the spirit of our times.

"God’s word holds these things dear and holds them
closely together: Love And Obedience; Prayer And Exhortation;
Forgiveness And Repentance. Our failure to hold these
essentials together is a failure to hold to God’s word and to
honor it by our diligent study and attention."

‘The Determined Christian’ commented on this book, “Sometimes really great books are written by unknown authors; this is one of them.” To my fault, I read Christian books from only a handful of trustworthy mainline publishers, and I neglect many books because of this. Michael Snow, the author of Love, Prayer, and Forgiveness contacted me about considering a review of his book. I’m really, really glad I did.

Michael Snow introduced his reader to the idea of ‘the holy conjunction’. Divorced from their position in Scripture, he writes how love, prayer, and forgiveness take on a life of their own. They are twisted, maimed, and manipulated for the self. “God’s word holds these things dear and holds them closely together: love and obedience; prayer and exhortation; forgiveness and repentance. Our failure to hold these essentials together is a failure to hold to God’s word and to honor it by our diligent study and attention.”[i] He is technical but not unapproachably so. More beneficial to the reader, Snow is conscious that readers with varying degrees of ‘Christian literacy’ will read this book; so, all declaratives are saturated with clarifying remarks to avoid confusion.

Snow uses illuminating antidotes, metaphors, and patterns to develop his thesis on ‘holy conjunctions’. He accomplishes this with remarkable success. His stories are engaging, truthful, and contemplative. In many ways, his analysis and commentary of contemporary Christianity in light of his thesis resembled to Schaeffer and Colson.

A personal favorite example of his wit is found in chapter two. He writes on Mormon’s assertion that a potential convert should simply pray about the truthfulness of the claims.
