Book Review: Gospel Deeps
Chapters address different facets of Jesus and Christian theology (hence the diamond on the cover): the Persons of the Trinity; the meaning of atonement; why God allows suffering; characteristics of God; our longing for heaven; redemption; joy found in the Gospel; and the glory of Christ.
This book reawakens the beauty, joy, and wonder of the Gospel. I loved it because I'm not satisfied with a casual, "Jesus is my buddy" kind of Sunday morning Christian faith. I want to go deeper. Jared Wilson is awed by the majesty and excellencies of Jesus and he respects his readers enough to bring us along with him. Yes, there's some deep theology in here--but dive in--you can handle it.
