New Book


I just received Complete in Him, A Guide to Understanding and Enjoying the Gospel, in the mail. I stumbled upon it through someone mentioning what a blessing it was to them and that it was now back in print for a limited time, so I grabbed it and have skimmed it and looked through the chapters and appendices so far. I think I can already say that this is an invaluable resource to deepen my love for Christ’s work on my behalf. Let me share the chapter titles and subthemes:
