52 Amazing Things That Became True of You The Moment You Trusted Christ by Stephen Kuhn

Book description:

The Bible uses many different words to describe what happens to people when they trust Christ. The most common phrase is "in Christ." But what exactly does that mean? This compact book unpacks 52 key verses from Scripture that reveal God's answer to the question of a Christian's true identity. Here is a unique, one-of-kind collection with in-depth commentary and life application insight to help readers discover the full depth of what God has already changed in believers. Changes that are already done.

My review:

 I like all sorts of books, but really enjoy ones like these. They can be read at one sitting, or read a chapter or two at a time.

  The author came up with a neat idea and made it into this book. Backed up with Scripture, there are 52 things that become true of us when we become Christians. I don't agree with him on all 52, as he is a Calvinist and I am not.... but he still did a great job of compiling what I feel to be mostly true things that are true of us at that point.

  I liked the author's writing style, and did enjoy the book.....even the parts I disagreed with.

  I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About the author:

Stephen Kuhn has been leading recovery groups, speaking at college campuses, and providing free online counseling through Belt of Truth Ministries ever since he got steamrolled by Jesus and set free from the chains of porn addiction. His passion is to allow God to use the story of redemption in his life to encourage other men to seek healing through the work of Christ as well.

Like most native Oregonians, Stephen enjoys a good rain shower and probably drinks too much coffee. He spends his weekends hiking, climbing, and skiing, but his greatest joy is playing dress-up with his daughters.

"52 Amazing Things" is available from Faith Words, part of the Hachette Book Group. Thanks to Hachette for the review copy.
