How does God work in the life of a new convert? Emilio Ramos uses Scripture and the writings of Christian leaders to help the reader understand the mysteries of conversion. The book is an excellent preparation for all who are called to be evangelists, pastors, teachers, and church leaders. Convert: Adam to Christ is about what God does in converting people by taking us out of Adam and putting us into Christ. Emilio's friend Ray Comfort writes, ''We are living in an age where many are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. An unbiblical form of Christianity is not only accepted but promulgated throughout the contemporary church. . . . So it's refreshing to find men like my friend Emilio Ramos who have a deep and abiding love for the Word of God.'' Here is an excerpt from the book: ''Paul's commitment to biblical truth was so uncompromised that once the gospel was undermined he would not hesitate to defend the truth even at the expense of significant earthly relationships with other apostles. This is what makes Paul's commitment to the truth so penetrating, that he lived out what he said at the opening of the Galatian letter, 'But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!' Paul would stand up for the gospel even at the cost of significant relationships, friendships, and ministry opportunities. Although doing this was not easy or comfortable, it was necessary.'' Emilio Ramos is committed to taking this same stand for the gospel, and his writing gives the reader insight into what conversion to Christ actually entails.
