Earlier in the year I reviewed a book by Frank Viola, The Untold Story Of The New Testament Church, and said that it was pretty much the best Christian book I have read in a very long time. Frank’s book has held onto the top honours for a few months now, but today I am excited to say I have a new favourite…
Today is actually the 3rd anniversary of Charisma Ministries. 3 years, 3 books, over 350,000 hits from over 189 countries. Thanks to all those who have helped make this possible. As a 3rd anniversary gift I am honoured introduce to you the first book by my friend and mentor, Paul Ellis.
The Gospel In Ten Words is simply the best book on grace I have ever read. I don’t know how well you think you know grace, or even if you have never heard about it before, this book will be an invaluable resource to you from the moment you start reading it.
I have only read it once, but it is one of those books that will teach you something different every time you read it. Some chapters I have already gone over more than once simply because the revelations contained in them are so liberating.
In the book Paul looks at 10 different aspects of the gospel by looking and examining 10 words that are basically synonymous with the gospel, the core of the good news message. If you had to explain what the gospel is in 10 words, what words would you use? Some of the ones Paul chose include union, forgiven, loved, holy, righteous and new.
Each word and each chapter unfolds the gospel message over and over until you basically end up with 360° panoramic view of the most amazing story ever told, the story of a Loving Father and His Family.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I know you will too. Thank you Paul for taking the time to write this book. It is going to revolutionize thousands of lives across the globe!
Important Note: There are 3 different formats of this book. Good old fashioned paper and of course electronic. The e-formats are a little different. There is a kindle version and an e-book version. The e-book version is a better option because it contains a supplementary scripture index and a list of over 100 FAQ’s about grace and other topics. Paul couldn’t include these properly in the kindle version since kindle doesn’t make use of page numbers. The scripture index and FAQ’s are only in the paperback and e-book versions.
The official release for the book is 17 September, but it is already available on Amazon. To visit Paul’s website and find out more about the book, simply click here.
