Oh, man, where do I start? Jen Wilkin is a treasure! She’s one of those gems who can communicate beautifully in written and spoken word alike! She loves God and it’s obvious. She cares about making the Word of God, rightly divided, easily accessible to each reader and calling all of us in closer to see more of the heart and voice of God. And I am grateful. From the first lines, I was hooked, reading page after page. I’m teaching through her Women of the Word book right now and I can see her putting her own teaching into practice beautifully in these pages, bringing the text alive and asking the right questions to bring it home. It was hard to put this book down as night approached. Jen's turns of phrase and observations, bringing out the depth of the meaning of each word, calling us to changed hearts, not just simple moralism, are beautiful. She gives us a vision for a future where “the things we have exalted will be cast down to the level of their real worth,” – and a call to place them there now, giving “undivided allegiance to the God of our costly deliverance.” But we don’t have to wait to cast off the idols of our hearts. “Why wait until the next life to esteem what God esteems? Jen calls us to put off the idols of our hearts and to worship God with single-minded allegiance, to see the building of the commandments, all stemming from the first call to worship God alone. This book is a practical call to love God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength; to love the law that helps us see Him better and be transformed into His likeness; to love the law He has so graciously given to us; and to love our neighbors as ourselves - as He has so kindly loved us. Each chapter ends with a reflection question and a call to prayer. It's so good! I highly recommend picking up a copy of this book today!
