Its There is a lot of really good, helpful, motivating content in this book. Louis, Missouriwhich he founded in In it, he shows how Jesus died for God—to vindicate His righteousness, and how Jesus died for sinners—to redeem, reconcile, and rescue them from their sin.

Wisdom has often been discovered not in those who have learned to give all the answers, but rather from those who have learned to ask the right questions. We are thinking of leading a tiny church as laypeople with little experience. There are a handful of quotes in the first few chapters that have thousands of repeat highlights.
