“By ordinary rules, we should make him unclean, pressing upon him with our messy and muddled lives. But when we come to him in faith, it works the other way. His power makes us clean again. That’s near the very heart of the gospel.” (Pages 36–37)
“‘Everyone wants to serve God,’ declared the poster outside the church, ‘but only in an advisory capacity.’ We all know what we want God to do. We are not so good at bringing our hopes and intentions into line with what God has in mind.” (Page 17)
“Jesus is saying, ‘Look! This is God’s kingdom we’re talking about, not a comfortable way of being religious that will let you settle down and take life at your own pace!’ Are you up for that?” (Page 44)
“The whole of Luke’s gospel is about the way in which the living God has planted, in Jesus, the seed of that long-awaited hope in the world.” (Page 2)
“The Temple in the Old Testament comes into the New Testament wearing skin, bones and flesh. Jesus himself is the true Temple, the place on earth where the living God dwells with his people, revealing his power and glory.” (Page 42)
Well worth purchasing, especially since there is enough material here to keep most people going long after Lent.
