The sleeping giant of contemporary Christianity can no longer ignore this wake-up call.
Dr. Gary North, with his usual wit, wisdom, and theological prowess, has summarized the Christian faith in an easy-to-read format that is both eminently practical yet also broad in its application. The Bible does have the answers to the pressing questions of our day, and the answers aren’t vague theological pleasantries but direct, practical, understandable instructions from God’s Word.
Using the imagery of the twisted image of God in man, Dr. North shows the failure of our modern man-centered solutions, and then leads us through the biblical progression and consequences of the “untwisting” process. Untwisting doesn’t stop with individual, personal salvation, but continues through families, institutions, and cultures as everything is brought under the reign of Jesus Christ, thus reversing our cultural amnesia. Dr. North summons us to a life of unconditional surrender to “the statutes of the Lord” which are called perfect, sure, true, and righteous, “rejoicing the heart” and “enlightening the eyes” (Ps. 19:7–9).
If any book today should be considered a “must give” tract, this is it. Unconditional Surrender motivates the reader to be a doer, not just a hearer, of the Word.
