You know what’s better than a book? A free book. You know what’s better than a free book? An excellent, life-affirming, God-glorifying book. That’s what this book is. A couple weeks ago, I received an email offering a review copy Jim Cymbala’s new book. Well that was a no-brainer for me. I’ve loved everything of his that I’ve ever read. This book is wonderful. It’s a quick read, I read it in two days, and given my schedule right now, that’s saying something. It is a book full of the testimonies of some people who’ve been rescued, mostly from pretty horrific circumstances, by the love Jesus. This is one of the most encouraging books I have ever read. Story after story shows how the love of Christ overcomes all matter of struggle, then at the end, is a clear presentation of the Gospel along with a final chapter called “Where to go from here” which helps a reader to find and take the next steps in forming a walk with Christ.

On this blog I talk a lot about telling a better story. This is a prime example. Few things testify to the greatness of Christ better than the story of a transformed life. The Rescue will give you seven great stories of people who’ve gone from the darkness into the light of God’s love.

This would be a great book to give to someone who is outside the faith, struggling with faith, or just generally having a hard time. It would also be a great book for a new believer. Do yourself a favor and check out this book.
