Product Description

For each of us, there comes a time in our lives when we want to know God's grace. But for some people, the gospel message of Christ's atoning sacrifice sounds too good to be true. Forgiveness is God's great work because it is all-inclusive and everlasting. In this book, John Ensor helps his readers understand the human experience of God's ongoing, outworking grace.

    The theme of The Great Work of the Gospel by John Ensor is about our human experience of Gods outworking grace (p. 11). From its first chapter to the last, this well-paced book explores the power of Gods saving grace in the life of man. Ensor writes emphatically concerning the work of salvation, But it is not a partnership. It is not I do half and God does half. It is Gods work (p. 15). Throughout, Ensor is quick to remind us that the work of grace in a believers life is Gods work; He is the sovereign craftsman building grace into our lives so as to produce a work that would glorify Him. <P>Ensor organizes his book around the central themes of the gospel, core truths that comprise what we would consider the saving message of Jesus Christ. He begins with the forgiveness of sins and the reconciliation a sinner can have with God as he takes hold of Gods mercy. Because, as Ensor puts it, God desires to make his mercy the apex of his own glory in the eyes of all creation (p. 28). From that foundation of forgiveness, he moves through the entire process of salvation, from owning up to our guilt before God to pushing past our grudges by forgiving others just as generously as God forgives the repentant sinner. In between these two poles, we read about Gods holy wrath against sin, hope in Gods forgiving grace, Jesus Christ as the incarnation of Gods outworking grace, the wrath and mercy displayed on the cross, experiencing a clean conscience, and having a glad heart to obey God. In each chapter, the author displays a skillful handling of the Bible and a warm, personable tone that invites the reader in through real-life stories, vivid illustrations, and gripping quotes.
