Deserve

Last night I had to fight off tears (this happens to me a lot these days) when I read the following words from Ezra 9:13: “… you, our God, have punished us less than our iniquities deserved.” The Lord had destroyed the temple and driven the people into exile–yet this was an act of mercy, in God’s accounting.

We live under the same mercy. So be thankful. We are getting less punishment than our sins deserve–because of Jesus.

Chris Castaldo: “Splendid”

More praise for The Seven Signs of Jesus:

“In this splendid book, Stan Guthrie is persuaded that God performs miracles in the lives of men and women. He contends that such divine interventions are more common than we realize, if only we had eyes to recognize them. More than wonders at which to marvel, however, Stan illustrates that God’s miracles are signs that evince the supreme miracle and ultimate gift toward which every sign points—salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Chris Castaldo, Ph.D., Lead Pastor of New Covenant Church, Naperville, Illinois, and author of Talking with Catholics about the Gospel

Prayer

“No one can believe how powerful prayer is and what it can effect, except those who have learned it by experience. Whenever I have prayed earnestly, I have been heard and have obtained more than I prayed for. God sometimes delays, but He always comes.”
― Martin Luther

John Wilson: “Chesterton Would Have Approved”

Here’s what my friend John Wilson says about The Seven Signs of Jesus:

“The miracles of Jesus? Well, you know, we don’t like to talk about them too much. That’s almost as bad as talking about heaven. Of course we believe they happened, but . . . Refreshingly, there’s no such waffling in Stan Guthrie’s new book, which manages to be lucidly commonsensical about the extraordinary. Chesterton would have approved.”
John Wilson, Editor, Education & Culture

Music

“Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through music.”
― Martin Luther

Eric Metaxas: “Highly Recommended”

Here’s what Eric Metaxas says about my new book, The Seven Signs of Jesus:

“Thank you, Stan Guthrie, for these wonderful ruminations on the seven signs of Jesus! They’re eminently readable and delightfully informative; and most importantly, they lead us beyond the signs to the One behind the signs, which is the whole point, after all. Highly recommended.”
Eric Metaxas, New York Times Bestselling author of Bonhoeffer and If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty
