First, Marshall support everything he says directly with Scripture.
Second, against the timeless 'antinomian' error he shows that a faith that does not include faith for sanctification is not a saving faith.
Third he shows in detail the difference between works and faith. He goes deeply into the psychology that entraps so many people, especially of 'holiness' type traditions, from actually receiving the transforming power.
In essence, he shows what the Gospel is and what it is not, in the most convincing way. The church, especially the charismatic church (I'm a charismatic), would benefit greatly by learning more deeply the truths in this book, and in fact many do teach them, but few with the depth and insight that Marshall does here. Moreover, Marshall leads you to Christ through His Word-- all other ground being truly sinking sand.
This book is difficult to read however. Though it is small, the print is tiny, and the material is dense, and the presentation plain. The langauge itself however, is not a barrier.
It was this book that was instrumental in the young life of A.B. Simpson founder of the Christian Missionary Alliance
Second, WOW! What can I say? Those of us who are Christians only THINK we are. We are NOWHERE near being a Christian than the unsaved\uncoverted are...not by any stretch of the imagination.
This Scripture applies to us: "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12). Why? Because this book cuts right down to the inner heart. It shows us that we that think we stand, take heed, because we don't.
Third, this book is a call to sanctification (Webster's: to make holy; consecrate; to purify or free from sin), to set yourselves apart from the world and do what He asks of you.
Are you ready? Only by His strength can any of us begin to live like this.
