In many parts of the world today you will meet people who say they are “born-again Christians.” Numerous individuals claim to be “reborn” or “regenerate.” But what do they mean by this? More importantly, what does the Bible have to say about it?
In this volume, Gary Brady dispels many misunderstandings of what it means to be “born again” and outlines the biblical meaning, explaining why it is necessary, how it happens, and how lives are changed as a result. He shows that it is not a change of outlook, or even direction, but an everlasting change of our very natures, brought about by a work of God himself.
It is the author’s belief that “no subject in religion is of greater importance than that of the new birth,” and it is his desire that in reading this volume you’ll not only come to understand what it really means, but that, if it has never happened to you before, you will come to experience it for yourself and be born again.
The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of numerous Christian topics. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important apologetic concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
