about

From the introduction:
It may be incongruous to use a text for an introduction to a book, nevertheless I am doing just that. When I contemplated the central theme of the messages in this manuscript I was struck with the thought of how wonderful it is that God is accessible to sinful humanity. From there it was a logical step to Ephesians 2:18, “We … . have access … . unto the Father.”

Amazing love, unspeakable mercy, infinite grace God not only deigns to listen but He encourages, He urges us to come. And best of all, in accordance with His many promises, He responds. While we are still afar off He sees, before our cry is articulated He hears our very yearning.

The emphasis in this volume is that God’s coming into our hearts and lives not only brings a blessed consciousness of His presence, but it also brings a dynamic that changes, that impels, that motivates, that empowers, that makes a worm thrash a mountain, that out of weakness makes strength, that transforms a shrinking timid personality into a courageous, valiant soldier of the cross.

Doctor Chapman is no novice in the field of writing. His following totals into tens of thousands. His philosophical approach, his enlivening humor, his refreshing and seemingly inexhaustible store of anecdote are all employed here. However, my impression is that in these pages is a depth of thought and a keenness of analysis surpassing anything that has yet come from the pen of this gifted writer and church leader.
