Publisher's Description

Henri Nouwen once wrote, "One of the greatest challenges of the spiritual life is to receive God's forgiveness." Why is it that it is so difficult to receive God's forgiveness? Why is it so hard to truly embrace God's unmerited affection? Why do Christians so often fall back into performance-based religion? Why is it so challenging to trust God during the hard times in life? What does Genesis really mean by the "knowledge of good and evil," and how does it keep us from accepting God's grace? Why does the prayer posture of modern Christianity look like a slave cowering before a cruel master, while the prayer posture of early Christians looked like a little child waiting for his daddy to scoop him up in his arms? Brent Skilton asks these tough questions, taking the reader on a quest through the Biblical text that reveals some very surprising answers: Perhaps our problem is that we do not truly understand what happened that tragic day in Eden, and what the Father did to cure the problem through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. Could it be that something inside us wants to live as God's slave, when God wants us to live as His free-spirited sons and daughters?
