The chapter on forgiveness used many of Christ's and the apostle Paul's examples and teachings that posed challenges every Christian must face. It would have been much appreciated if the question about forgiveness when none is sought had been addressed. We must ask forgiveness for our sins, but what about those we should forgive?
The chapter on confession also presented challenges, such as relying on a partner or confidant that we can trust with our confessions. Not everyone can easily put himself into such a position. This chapter could also have discussed the theological question of whether confession is required for forgiveness, or did Christ's death atone for all sins a priori?
The chapter on being holy didn't seem to progress very far, but that may have been the author's intention. After all, this is an attribute that stymies most of us.
One possible view is that this book represented a survey of these new testament commandments, and that an entire book could easily be written about each one of them. Ms Dormon could do well with her writing style in tackling these weighty subjects. The reader can follow what is being said without needing a doctorate in theology to do so.
I would recommend this book for use by lay people, such as church Life Groups. There is a lot of room left for lively discussion in each chapter, and in the title itself.
In her clear understandable style, Sara’s passion for the needs of the poor, the widow, the single parent and even your next door neighbor inspires and calls us to heed the call of what being a Christian is all about - that is. . . being “the hands and feet of Jesus. . .” on this earth.
This daunting task can only happen when we ourselves have experienced the unconditional love of Jesus.
