My biggest problem with this book is simply this: If you take out the key words the author is trying to prove, words like "Jesus" or "God," and replace them with complete nonsense words like "schrebble" and "hofnor," then you walk away with no convincing evidence and not even an enticing story to believe in either schrebble or hofnor. It's just plainly not a good defense of the faith. Disappointing.
My life changed when I met Jesus. He was that special gift that someone shared with me. They didn't have this book to give to me. It would have helped me understand who He was. They didn't have this book to share with me. It would have made me think about what I was living my life for, and where on earth I was going. But this book, this gift, it can change a person's outlook on life. This book is just what that special someone needs.
So give the gift that keeps on giving...and you'll never have to say... Forgive Me for waiting so long to tell you this.....
This is where you can recommend Forgive Me for Waiting So Long to Tell You This. David Servant has written an easy to read book that you can use to help further your conversation with your spiritually thirsty friend.
Let them read this book with you and talk about each chapter together. Let the chapters of this book become conversation starters between you and your friend.
Servant starts with God as the creator. Then he moves into talking about the character of God.
After that, he spends a few chapters talking about our sinful nature and how that nature expresses it self in our selfishness.
Sin deserves a consequence - if not, then God would not be just. God's justice is the only fair remedy for our sin.
But in God's justice, mercy is evident. As seen by the Exodus encounters, God granted mercy to the Egyptians for many years, delaying His judgment. God granted mercy to the Israelites through the Passover, setting up the illustration of how Jesus died for us to shield us from God's wrath.
Skipping over the rest of biblical history (which is fine for the point of the book), Servant jumps to the existence of Jesus, his death, and the resurrection.
Once a person believes in what Jesus did for them, they have eternal life and Servant speaks a little on the effective habits of new Christians.
Forgive Me for Waiting So Long to Tell You This is not an academic book. It is not heavy on big words. It is not quoting long dead scholars nor dependent on generally inaccessible scholarly material. It is written for a popular audience so that you can further your conversation with your spiritually thirsty friend.
If your friend is hostile to the Christian faith, then this book may not be the right one. If your friend needs scholarly quotes from religious philosophers, this book is not the one. If you want a book on finer points of Christian theology like election, eternal security, and all the other implications of the gospel, this book isn't it. It's straight to the point about how Jesus died for our sins according to Scripture. If you have a theological pet peeve, this isn't the book to argue it.
However if your to spiritually thirsty friend is open to reading this book and discussing its contents with you, they will find it an easy and winsome read.
As you read it with them, you'll recall the basic gospel outline - Jesus died for our sins according to scripture.
As you discuss it with them, you'll have the joy of sharing your faith with your friend who has a tremendous spiritual thirst.
