If you've read David Pawson you will expect a tightly argued, clearly and lucidly structured and presented approach from arguably the best Bible teacher of this generation. This book is no exception. Clarity of insight and non technical wording come as standard with Pawson.
The key framework is understanding repentance, faith, baptism in water, and baptism in the Holy Spirit as elements of Christian birth. He cuts through non Biblical contemporary evangelical terminology that often muddies the waters, and also provides an exegetical approach to a whole host of new testament passages in light of the theology presented. Each of the four elements is taught with clarity and insight, so I go back to them time and again e.g. if speaking at a baptism.
Most books on the subject are not without controversy. The practical implications of Pawsons conclusions are quite profound and far reaching. However I havent read better. Prepare to be challenged!
A Future Christian Classic For Effective Christian Living
This book is destined to become a Christian classic! If you are a Christian and haven't yet read it do so immediately! It covers the basics of full 'Christian Birth'. A hasty 'decision for Jesus' at a Billy Graham Crusade can be a poor foundation for living, instead a Christian needs to be certain about Repentance, Believing in Jesus, Water Baptism, and Receiving the Holy Spirit - this book will help. It also looks carefully at the so-called 'problem passages' that many Christians struggle with.
