I am new to the teaching of Andrew Wommack and this is the first book of his that i've read. I found it a pretty easy read, and Andrew's teaching is clear and quite well presented. It centres around our understanding of how God relates to His people, and what His true nature is. This is for anyone who struggles to understand the supposed difference between how God acts in the Old and New Testaments, how the OT Law works and fits in, and how we, as NT believers should understand God.
The book was encouraging and challenged me in a number of ways. I always understood the Old Covenant to be Law-based and the New Covenant to be grace-based, and while this is true in one sense, Andrew points out that God didn't ever intend to work by the Law to save us. In fact, God dealt graciously with His people for many years before the Law was ever introduced. Andrew explains why it was introduced and what it was for. He goes on to show that many Christians still relate to God in a "works" or "Law" kind of way.
The book felt fairly short, but perhaps that was because I got into it! If you're a good reader then you can probably get through this fairly quickly.
It was a challenge, and very encouraging too. I'd recommend this book if you're interested in the above and want to understand more about God's love.
