I am impressed with this work, because Mr. Ray shows that God's word is much larger than the petty corners of Christendom. Way back in the first century the gnostics thought their way to heaven was through special inside knowledge. It is amazing how the denominations take pride in their "special" understanding of some topic from God's word, without considering the whole counsel of God. When you look at all of it, you find yourself in deep water, needing balance. Too many stay in the shallow water espousing some corner of truth.

Thank you Gary for making me think and sharing truth, something sorely needed in this godless relativistic world gone mad.

If you like this book, I recommend C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity, Francis Chan - Crazy Love, John R.W. Stott - Basic Christianity, Lee Strobel - The Case for Christ

Really interesting, really enjoyable read. It covers varying Biblical topics: salvation, apologetics, prophecy, heaven, among others--all with a focus on remaining steadfast despite a growing "darkness" in culture and a dead church. I would sum it up as "light versus darkness". The first chapter is an excellent refresher on Christianity 101, which is surprisingly lacking at many/most churches.

A grammatical thing or two (like most books out there), but it doesn't detract from this great read at all. Some pretty profound chapters, especially on the topic of Heaven and eschatology.

Ok, so this book has MANY great parts, but some of the chapters just blew me away. I won't spoil it for you, but the chapters on heaven were breathtaking. If you read and enjoyed "The Shack" and "Heaven is for Real" then you absolutely MUST get this book. Seriously.

There is plenty of other great stuff in there too: a great chapter on the scale of the universe and the human body. Oh... and a chapter with lots of original research ("You are not alone").

Like I said, I really don't want to spoil it for you. You will enjoy it. Totally worth the 12.95. GET IT!
