If you have ever dared to think that the church has veered off course from being what God would have it be, that which is developed in the pages of this book could prove to be an important starting point from which to understand the problem and pursue a solution. The very reality of individual conversion hinges upon genuine repentance. A strong, effective church hinges upon true conversion of the individual members. Too often, our evangelistic efforts aim at changing what a person does but fails to address why they do it. Genuine repentance is a "why" issue. It is a matter of abandoning outward action that is motivated by supreme self-interest and establishing the prevailing purpose of pleasing, loving, serving and worshiping God, through Christ, by the Spirit. This book represents my humble contribution to the effort of getting a derailed church back on track. "Michael Wolfe's teaching is positive, in that it exalts God in a Biblical manner. It is probing, in that it touches the hearts of those who listen, and it will be hard for them to leave as they came. It is Biblical, in that it presents in a very interesting form the great rescue operation we call 'salvation'. It is exactly the kind of teaching we need in order to have a revival in this time of our culture and our world." Rev. Dean H.
