Human Responsibility & God's Sovereignty Finds a Modern Voice May 2, 2010
It has been many years since I have found a theological work which kept me eagerly coming back. Neal's respect for the Word of God and submission to it is very refreshing. Moreover, he has been able to discuss the important issues of human responsibility and God's sovereignty in a completely modern voice while still leaning on the insights of Jonathan Edwards and John Owen as well as many others. The book is not simply a passionless description of the big questions Christians face but a warm and honest testimony to God's glory and ways.
Most helpful book Jul 14, 2009
Neil Martin has done a wonderful service to followers of Christ in writing this book. Born out of more than 8 years, during which time Neil suffered from a debilitating illness, "Keep Going" gives today's Christians significant ammunition to fight doubts that emanate both externally from our culture and internally from our own nagging thoughts. This is not a quick, frothy read, but a deep, content-rich book that offers much to contemplate and ultimately to use to put iron in our souls and courage in our faith. I think this book is helpful for all ages, but especially for young adults who are constantly bombarded with the notion that if you don't feel something is true it isn't. I have often been haunted by Luke 18:8, where Jesus asks a rather frightening question, "However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" I pray so, and Neil Martin provides a wonderful resource to help us do that.
Unique May 31, 2009
This book has really helped me to keep going as a Christian! It is academically brilliant, easy to read and very well applied. I don't know any other book that deals with some of these struggles so thoroughly and well without being dry and academic. Thank you Neil Martin!
Comprehensive, deep, thorough and above all biblical. May 29, 2009
Comprehensive, deep, thorough, lucid, passionate and above all biblical. This is just what you need if you're dealing with the issue of intellectual doubt. Whether we're dealing it for ourselves or helping someone else through it, this book is ideally suited to that purpose. Martin writes from a reformed theological perspective. As the extensive bibliography makes clear, this man has read a lot and he's read widely. Wonderfully he's gleaned from the greats the very best that there is to offer. Martin's ability to express complex truth in straightforward language is something to admire and perhaps covet! The chapter on divine sovereignty and human responsibility is brilliant and something I've returned to on more than one occasion. But this is not a detached theological treatise on intellectual doubt. It's warm and pastorally apposite, as befits someone who has had to battle these issue for himself. It was written to help fellow strugglers persevere in the Christian faith and trust God when the questions fly round in our heads. But I've also found it helpful in giving to thoughtful unbelieving friends who want to engage with a cogent presentation of the Christian faith. If you've not got it. Buy it. Then buy another copy. And give it away!
