Authority: For He Taught Them as One Having Authority, and Not as the Scribes. Re. Matthew 7:29 (Paperback)
"Never man spake like this man" (re. John 7:46). The authority to speak in the name of Jesus Christ is given to them whom, by suffering association and self-denial, have taken up their cross and followed him, not straight to heaven but to Gethsemane, Pilate's Hall, and then Calvary. The cross of Jesus Christ is my cross, and it is yours. By appointment, we are given place in midnight wrestlings to win the power, and by progressive grace and truth, we are given place. This is authority to have place in Christ and to speak out of that place for Christ. Mainstream Christianity has no viable witness of Jesus Christ because they do not live for Jesus Christ; they live for themselves. Christians talk about everything but Christ. Someone has to say it, and this book without apology does just that.
About the Author
The author challenges those us who call ourselves Christian to rise to a viable witness for Christ. Out of personal experience, and out of what he calls, "the agony of greater Grace," this fresh voice confronts the Truth of a compromised church and world- conciliatory Christianity. This is a raw, unsparing testimony.
