I'm glad when any book encourages people to read the Bible, and Rich makes some good points in this one, but I feel it is overall theologically unbalanced - a corrective that goes too far.The book's main point, the belief that Rich is really excited about, is the sovereignty of God: the fact that the Lord has control over everything in heaven, the world, people's hearts and minds, our lives. I have to agree that's important, but Rich is not a trained theologian and I think he has gone a little too far with it into a kind of hyper-Calvinism. (He doesn't seem to have a place in his understanding for free will in any form.) I appreciated Rich's point in Ch. 5 that a Christian has a new identity as "child of God" instead of "sinner." He is right on in saying that Satan is not battling the Lord for victory; he has already lost. I also appreciated his way of looking at the practical implications of some of these beliefs. Overall, some good parts and good points, but needs some discernment in places where the author has gone too far.
