Pastor Darryl Reinsel says...
Awesome Book Especially Chapter 6. Listened to the Entire Book now about 8 times. Would recommend it to all pastors and those who really desire to know what kind of faith God has called us to. One has to ask the question, "When the Son of Man returns, Will He find Faith on the earth?" So much of what is called 'faith' today, is nothing more than religion. Pastors simply copy and paste instead of studying the Word for themselves. They don't want to provoke people to a Holy Life, they just want everyone to feel good and keep coming.

This book is such a powerful tool to build up the Church in love and holiness. This book shows beyond all doubt that our God commands us to love Him and serve Him with our whole being--nothing less. What is so incredibly obvious through the Bible (and, naturally, this book) is so rarely taught in the United States today, especially towards our nation's youth. As a middle school teacher at a private Christian school, I can say with full certainty that J.P. Shelly's book should be required reading so both youths and adults will know that the Bible is the absolute Truth and nothing less.

I've enjoyed chapters 10 and 14. By the table of contents I couldn't if you touch on a certain topic in any of the chapters, namely, the teaching that Jesus was separated from the Father while on the cross and that God "turned his back on Jesus" while on the cross. I think the message of both John and Psalm 22 teach otherwise and I was wondering if you touch on that in your book.

Unfortunately, the book is not available in print at this time. However it is a priority of ours and we hope to have it available in the coming months.

I have just begun reading and I find it very thought-provoking indeed. It's too bad this book is not in print form as it would be easier to read and refer back to it.
