From the Author
This has been my most controversial book to date with many people choosing to give poor reviews. I think that many people were offended by the message of grace that this book presents. It is sad. An updated copy of this book is being worked on now and should be out by September 2016
About the Author

From a life of destruction and pain Matthew has found his loving Father in heaven again and has devoted his life to giving back to the world of Christians and to giving hope to the lost. Matthew teaches the Word of God with passion and is careful to illustrate all of his teachings with personal life experience. He has been once married and divorced and is happily single with an adult son called Brandyn. He resides in Sydney Australia. Matthew enjoys coffee, reading, movies, coffee, long chats with friends, church activities, coffee.

I was so impressed with this author's book and its affect on me, that I searched for Matthew through Facebook. I was excited to find him, and quite thrilled when he accepted my friend request! In reality, he is a wise, loving, humble, gentle, and Godly man. When I share his thoughts with friends -- they love him, too! And what's more, the Lord is glorified. Since we've been in contact, I've learned that Matthew accepts new friend requests. I highly recommend his book, and then getting to know Matthew, personally. You won't be dissappointed!
There were also many grammatical errors:
-Run-on sentences, like in “Evidence is not the issue it is our personal evil that is the issue.
-Misused possessives, as in “just one denarius’s was a normal”
-Always capitalize “the” in any position in a title.
-Constantly used singular objects with plural possessive pronouns, for example, :People wrongly blame God for negative things in their life.”
-Incorrect verbs - “This sound horrific!”
-Many incorrectly used commas - “I know my mother’s one desire, was that her mother”
-Colons used where semicolons were needed
- There were some misused words, like “then” for “than” and “simple” for “simply”
All of this sounds like a lot of mistakes. However, the solid messages in the book overrode them. I still found the book worthwhile.
