Extracts from this book
The new birth, as every believer has proved, ushers in a life of fellowship with God, answered prayer, guidance, help, peace, learning of him and anticipation of eternal glory. The Christian faith teaches that death instantly transfers the soul of the believer to the paradise of Christ, waiting for the end of Earth’s present history and the day of the resurrection of the body.We can only faintly imagine the physical aspects of Calvary, and although they move us and stir our indebtedness and love to Christ, we are saved not by contemplating them, but by resting our faith on the invisible accomplishments of our suffering Saviour. We hold our gaze not on Christ’s physical agonies, even less on movies depicting exclusively the physical aspect, but we look with the eye of faith at the compassion, love and mercy of the incarnate God, and at the greatest accomplishment ever – the purchase of eternal souls.
“The Faith” is a simple exposition of ten important topics of Christian theology.The topics dealt with are the mysterious nature of a soul, God’s exclusive attributes, two chapters on the ‘reflected attributes’ of God, the Fall of man, the three hours of Calvary, the new birth, the importance of the Resurrection, prophecies of the Resurrection, and the Trinity.- English Churchman
