Reviews - What do customers think about Stone That Became A Mountain, The?
Knowing the future helps Jul 14, 2003
In this very readable and helpful book Bewes sets out to remind us of the greatness and inevitable triumph of what we as Christians belong to. His point is that we are part of Christ's Kingdom, the stone that unavoidably, inexorably and relentlessly, in Daniel's dream, grew to become a mountain. This is a vital vision for us in the 21st century. He says, "If we lose sight of that, then with the rest of the world we shall lurch on, baffled by every twist and turn of this chaotic age."
He writes simply and clearly, and with great illustrations from history, from his own vast experience, both worldwide and in a busy multicultural London congregation. Here is a book that will encourage you to keep going and growing in the Christian life. As he says, "Knowing the future helps."
And for those of you who haven't yet checked it out, he also has a superb little commentary on Revelation, "The Lamb Wins."
