God's love has the power to change lives. Christians, then, should exhibit the greatest transformation of all because, rightly understood and cherished, God's love makes them increasingly more like the One who has lavished his love on them. So why do we so often struggle to exhibit God's love? Biblical counselor Elyse M. Fitzpatrick asks one simple question: In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind?

We need to be rescued from our identity amnesia and pointed to our true identity as God's beloved children - adopted by the Father, united with the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Fitzpatrick shows how a genuine transformation of identity leads to a transformation of our daily lives. Those who struggle with either legalism or lawlessness will find encouragement to return to God's love, the source of authentic and lasting change.

    " Beautiful book about the gospel message and how it impacts our lives. What a joy to get away from the me-ism of works centered "gospel" messages...i.e. Glory Story. It is His work that matters, and His alone. Only because of His love am I able to love and serve others. Sometimes simplicity is the most beautiful. "

    " this book is transforming my life right now "

    " written as "the gospel for believers" this was one of the best books i've read in a long time. "

    " I was disappointed in this audiobook and gave up halfway through. Instead of it being an encouragement to live in the reality of the transforming love of God I found it very condemning. I enjoyed the introduction the most as it was very down to earth and easy to listen to although it was challenging. The narration by Renee Raudman is excellent and had me feeling that I was in an intimate setting, but it was let down by the heavy theology. At times without realising it my mind had wandered off and I'd missed segments of the chapter, it really couldn't keep my attention. I would only recommend this to listeners who come from the same theological background as the author, or maybe someone who is studying this particular subject as there are lots of scripture passages. There are so many better audio books out there that are far more encouraging. Thanks to christianaudio.com Reviewer's Program for this copy. "

    " You know when you read a book that is so wise and insightful that you genuinely want the author to be a part of your life? This book is one of those rare gems. Elyse does an excellent job of getting at the heart issues that keep us from growing in Christ rather than prescribing a list of steps or actions. So often we take the gospel for granted, and she reminds us of just how powerful the good news is, and how life-altering it should be. Again and again she focuses our hearts on the amazing truth that "I am more sinful and flawed and than I ever dared believe, more loved and welcomed than I ever dared hope", and how truly understanding the good news of Christ redeeming us frees us from self-improvement mantras to depending on the work of Christ in our hearts and lives as we continually encounter Him. "

    " This book took me around 5 months to slowly read b/c so much was jam packed...it is a good practical working out of living by the gospel paradigm. Overall, I left with a really good understanding of indicatives come before imperatives...in other words, God does not just tell us to do something w/out reminding us who we are and in whose power we accomplish it...and it comes to grips with really living out of who He says I am...excellent book" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marliss | 1/18/2014

    " Very strong encouragement not to leave Christ behind in our pursuit of godliness. Christ's incarnation, death, and resurrection should always inform our lives, not just when we are new Christians. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia | 12/31/2013

    " I am still reading this, but I have heard enough quoted from it to know that it is excellent. Also, a dear God loving friend recommended it. "

    " Wow, the first book to put my calling of christian in perfect perspective in light of the cross. AWESOME "

    " God really used this book in my life to remind me of the gospel in a meaningful way. What a blessing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 12/11/2013

    " This is a great book for people who have been Christians for a long time...to remind you of the power of The Gospel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 10/21/2013

    " Excellent, excellent book. Do you really and truly know the gospel and does it inform your everyday life? You will and it will after this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debi Walter | 4/24/2013

    " What a wonderful reminder of the rich truths of the Gospel. This book helps you "preach the Gospel to yourself" everyday. It is God-focused, not man-centered - a refreshing, yet convicting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 4/2/2013

    " This book will change the way you read the Gospel. Definitely worth the read. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Indira | 3/2/2013

    " Elyse Fitzpatrick is able to articulate clearly why the gospel transforms our everyday life. Though scripture, she will help you fight off the temptation to do good works and feel worthy of God's love and rely on the power of the gospel to change you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/17/2013

    " March 2013 - Wow! New favorite. This book is Gospel soaked and warm, inviting women (and men too) to bathe in the reality of their new life in Christ. I'm recommending it to all my girlfriends as well as the women's ministry at our church. Definitely one I'll read again! "
