5.0 out of 5 stars 'Magnificent Obsession - Why Jesus is Great', 22 Dec 2013
This review is from: Magnificent Obsession (Paperback)
From the author of 'The Dawkins Letters', 'Magnificent Obsession' consists of 10 Chapters - Man, Miracles, Messenger, Murdered, Marvellous, Meaning, Mission, Modern, Maranatha, Magnificent - each in the form of a letter to a non-Christian friend, setting out in a compelling way the case for Christ.

As a Christian minister and apologist, David has been asked numerous questions about his Christian faith. Many of these are dealt with in this book - and he presents convincing arguments to substantiate the reliability of the Bible, the deity of Christ, the sinfulness of man, the purpose of the Cross, the invincibility of the church, the reality of Hell, the glory of Heaven, the way of salvation and the character of faith.

'The good news is NOT that if you are good you will get to Heaven. In fact, the good news is that you can never be good enough to get to Heaven. Which doesn't sound like good news until you see the Cross.'

'Unlike the death of any wise man, guru, religious founder or hero in the history of mankind, Jesus' death is where the story begins, not where it ends.'

'The message of the Cross is not only that there is nothing that you can do to oblige God to accept you, but nothing you need to do. It's all been done. But we have to have the humility to accept it.'

Well-researched, (with useful quotes from a variety of sources), well-written and well-argued, the book reveals David's love for Christ and his consuming desire to make him known. He is a worthy successor to Robert Murray McCheyne as minister of St Peter's Church, Dundee.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It will enlighten those who are seeking truth and will encourage those who have already found that truth in Christ.
