I was tempted to say that Elyse Fitzpatrick is trying to "bridge the gap" between faith and works, but of course that would be terribly inaccurate. What she is doing is showing that the gap doesn't exist, and only our misunderstanding of the Gospel creates a chasm.
She does an excellent job of showing how the only true good works are those born of "faith working through love" as the Bible says. She hammers home the truth of God's Love in its rich fullness...not the bubble-gum love of the so-called "prosperity preachers," but the real Gospel love that transforms lives. She helps the reader rest in God's love, not as a place of self-indulgence, but as a base for godly living.
The narrator does a very good job with the text. My definition of good narratior is that she helps the listener immerse herself in the text, without calling attention to herself in the process. Raudman accomplished that at least 90% of the time.

This book is a must to do with 1 or 2 other women. powerful. It just keeps getting better and better with each chapter. There is so much truth in this book.
Brilliant book on the gospel! Even though I have been a Christian for many years I have never truly understood the immense implications of the gospel in the Christian life. I have never really understood what we have and who we are in Christ! This is the first gospel centred book I have listened to (and read it twice already). After this book I have read Tim Keller's Study of the Letter to Galatians (by the way, it was recommended in this book) and got even deeper understanding of the precious gospel of Jesus Christ! Before I got to know the gospel I had been living a performance centred life. What a bondage that was. I don't want to ever come back to that kind of life! I pray for every listener (and reader) of this book to really grasp the gospel, start living in it every day and share it with others!
