Slave by John MacArthur
This is another book that I got to review before Christmas. I sat down and started the book several times but I just couldn’t get into it. I think it was because of the time of year with Christmas excitement and the so soon arrival of Thomas. I will definitely go back and read this book someday when life gets a little less crazy – like, maybe when I’m 60! Slave has received great reviews from other bloggers – so it’s worth checking out.
Book Description from Thomas Nelson:
Best-selling author and pastor Dr. John MacArthur reveals one crucial word that revolutionizes what it means to follow Jesus.
Throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are commanded to submit to Him as their King. They are told to obey and follow, faithfully and without hesitation. Every time Christians utter the word Lord, they make a subtle yet profound declaration—that God is their Master and that they belong to Him. In fact, the Bible describes believers as His slaves. They have been bought with a price and now live for Christ as a people for His own possession.
But go into most churches today, even flip through most Bible translations, and you won’t see or hear the word slave anywhere. That’s because it has been lost in translation. In this gripping book, Dr. John MacArthur uses deep Bible teaching and historical evaluation to expertly uncover the one forgotten word that restores the Bible’s definition of true Christian freedom.
