  1. Good for Ministry Review / Tip by Shelby Burk

    Title: Making the Most of the Cross

    Author: John Chapman

    Date I Finished Reading: January 31,2013

    My Rating: 4/5

    Book Description from Matthias Media’s website:

    Every now and then, humanity witnesses a history-changing event, like the invention of the wheel or the discovery of penicillin. But there has been no other event like the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
    With characteristic candour and humour, John Chapman explains the meaning of this history-shaping event:
    » How can we know that Jesus really died?

    » How can we know that Jesus really rose from the dead?

    » How can God love people and yet condemn them to hell?

    » How can God forgive guilty sinners and yet be just?

    » What does Jesus’ death and resurrection mean for me?

    How does it affect my life?



    The cross. So many questions surround it. Why did Jesus have to die on the cross? What did his death on the cross accomplish? What does it mean in our own personal lives? John Chapman answers these questions and more in this book. Chapman covers many different topics in this book. He ranges from the purpose of the cross, to how a loving, just God can wipe away our sins. From how we can know that the Bible is true, to how the work on the cross can take away our guilt and condemnation. He does so in a way that relates both to unreached unbelievers, and believing christians alike.

    Some aspects of the book that I liked would include the fact that Chapman answers MANY questions that MANY people ask. Also, he does not over-explain or ramble. He is short, sweet, and to the point. The chapters are short, which makes for easy reading. Something I did not like about the book would be the fact that although Chapman uses scripture to support his points, there were a couple of times that I was not sure if they really applied or tied into the topic being discussed very well. It just seemed that at times the writing did not flow very well or logically. This made for the reading to become a bit confusing at times.

    Although I did not really find any of the book’s content extremely deep or eye-opening, the basic questions were answered well, making it a good resource to use in reaching out to and answering the questions of unbelievers. So I would recommend it to you as a tool to pass on to another, but I do not believe that it would be overly beneficial for a believer who is more mature in the faith.

    Note: I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. However, my opinions are my own.
