I”m surrounded by prolific readers who make helpful recommendations. So when I heard several recommendations for Tony Reinke’s book and then was given it, I looked forward to reading it.
But I wasn’t expecting a book about books to knock me flat on my face to worship!
I can now see the magnificence of our Savior. He is fully God and fully man. He is the Lion and the Lamb – the Sovereign and the Sufferer. He is the Prophet, Priest and King – speaking, dying, and reigning. He is Light to the blind, Health to the sinfully sick, Strength to the spiritually weak, Food for the spiritually famished, Joy for the sorrowful heart, Comfort for the despised, Deliverance for lost souls, Drink for the thirsty soul, and Triumph for the abused. He is my Savior, my Shepherd, my Friend, my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End.
