This book takes on some of the most basic issues in the Adventist faith. It is written from the heart of a successful pastor who has a track record of communicating the gospel to all kinds of people, including some of the most unlikely groups.
Part one describes the authentic, biblical everlasting gospel that is centered in Christ. Part two relates the gospel to the Adventist understanding of the judgment in heaven. Part three focuses on gospel-based worship, including how to relate to controversial and practical issues such as exuberant praise, music, applause and uplifted hands.
This book is all about Jesus, all about His perfect grace and all about freedom from the chains of legalism and guilt. “We can’t add anything to God’s perfect grace, we just gratefully accept His glorious gift of salvation full and free! Finally, off the treadmill of working our way to heaven, we can make the gospel the basis for our worship and have the rest that only comes through trusting in the accomplishments of Jesus Christ on our behalf.”
