The Gospel Call and True Conversion is a book that each and every long time christian should read. This book will biblically give you tools to examine yourself to see whether or not you are really in the faith. Paul Washer shows in laymen terms how a believer can and SHOULD compare his/her life with what the bible teaches about salvation and whether or not one has truly commit oneself to God or not. Washer does not teach that others can assess someone elses salvation rather this book is designed to show what salvation looks like from a biblical perspective and what one should see in their "christian walk". Are you a false convert? How would you know? Washer masterfully shows through scripture that the wolves among us sometimes don't even know that they are wolves. This book is a must read!
Never heard of Paul Washer til Dec. 2013 when I; by the title of the book was being tested and judged; purchased his works here. Paul has what it takes to wake people up (if they know they should be! - and we all should be!), he has BIBLICAL Instruction, reminders and absolute BIBLICAL concerns that are to be TAKEN SERIOUSLY - whether one likes it or not! So...I look him up and watch some messages etc. AND May God continue to BLESS his Ministry. PURCHASE THIS BOOK; and you can know why I'm going on and on.
Today there is much confusion on what constitutes the gospel. That is of major concern since the gospel is of utmost importance (I Corinthians 15:1-3). Some pastors have been accused of preaching "gospel lite." While I understand what that means I believe it is misleading. You are either preaching the gospel or nothing at all. There is no middle ground. So we need to have a Biblical understanding of what the gospel message is. In Paul Washer's book The Gospel Call & True Conversion he clarifies what it means for us to proclaim the gospel to a lost and dying world. This is part of a series on the gospel that Washer is writing. It is from a series of sermons he preached.
In this book you will learn more about what is the gospel call, having new hearts, and being new people. In a systematic way Washer takes us through the many aspects of the gospel, clearly articulating his points and giving the reader a fuller understanding of what God desires to do in the life of new and even mature believers. For those who have been a child of God for years will be reassured by Washer's writing, reassured that God has changed their life radically and will make them into what He wants them to be. In other words, even the most veteran believer will benefit from reading this book.
What struck me is how easy this book is to read. You won't find yourself stumbling over difficult words and when some are used they are explained so this won't be intimidating to the average reader. Also he uses an extensive amount of Scripture references to validate his points. This is important. The gospel isn't a human invention. It comes straight from the Word. And to the Word we should go for what it means.
If you are looking for a book to give you a better understanding of the gospel message then this is for you. You won't be disappointed.
