5.0 out of 5 stars Benjamin Williamson, 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a simple and clear explanation of a tricky phrase in the Apostle's Creed. The books sets the phrase in it's historical context and provides us with a good basis for retaining the phrase. I will continue to say the whole creed with confidence.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good introduction, 1 May 2013
Biographies of living people are always somewhat frustrating real analysis only comes with time and as they say only time will tell. Such a biography will no doubt come and indeed will certainly focus on the years to come.

However as an introduction to the man who now fills the Archbishops throne this is a readable and interesting introduction. Full of fascinating insights and snippets of his thought and actions hinting at his future. Time will tell but for now this is a warm and insightful portrait.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderfully Helpful Little Book, 6 July 2011
In many ways this is 'Guidance and the Voice of God' for 2011, it's fresh and easy to read. DeYoung demonstrates a brilliant understanding of both God's word's approach to guidance and the modern heart which has found ways to excuse sin by 'searching for God's will'.

DeYoung unpacks how the traditional views of guidance often shows a lack of trust in God, a refusal to take responsibility and a misunderstanding of God's character. DeYoung demonstrates how following God's will in his word liberates us from a lot of the confusion and worry we face. Despite the light style DeYoung is not afraid to call things the way they are and his penultimate chapter 'Work, Wedlock and God's Will' helps us put all this into practice.

This is a great short book for anyone trying to get to grips with how God guides. I cannot recommend it more highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful exposition of biblical teaching on Holy Spirit, 21 Oct. 2001
Wherever you stand on the spiritual gift debate this certainly a valuable contribution. Particularly as the first eight chapter are simply looking at who the Holy spirit is and what his role is. Where it does deal with spiritual gifts it does it sensitively and biblicallly both defending the cessationist position and refuting conter arguments. Any one who has not properly considered this position must read this book. But the main delight of this is how it reveals through scripture the role of the third person of the trinity and the applications of that to the way we view God.
