In a post modern world that has all but eliminated the concept of immutable truth and where churches are more concerned about being socially relevant than scripturally accurate, MacArthur's work stands out as a clarion call for teaching after the pattern of Jesus. This is a balanced approach to standing for the truth and the Gospel essentials. I would recommend it to any who seek to know what Jesus did, how He handled confrontation, and His stand regarding false teachings.
How manyn times have you read or heard about the paralytic being lowered through the roof and being healed, but did you ever truely grasp what happened in a instance? John MacArthur states it this way, The Bible sometimes understates the obvious. "the man's bones, fragile from nonuse, hardened perfectly. His muscles restored at once to full strenght and functionality..." This book has shed new light on the Light of the World. Without hesitation I would recommend this book, in fact I am ordering copies that I can give my family members and to friends.
