Christ, His Church, His Cross, His Crown

Robert Lightner

The last book written by our very own Bob Lightner asks the question "What if Jesus is not the Christ?...Then His death is just a tragic end to a noble life and His cross, His church, and His crown have no significance for today." He explains in his book that these are four quadrants of one truth that can never be divided from one another.

Newton's Grace: The True Story of Amazing Grace (not rated)

John Newton was a troubled young man with a violent temper and a penchant for vulgarity. Whipped for desertion and sold into slavery, it seemed his life would end early in a West African grave until he was rescued by a sea captain sent by his father. Later he was appointed captain of a slave ship himself. In an age when human bondage was considered the norm, it would take time for Newton's conscience to be transformed, but he came to hate the slave trade, becoming a spiritual leader in the fight to end slavery. This is a true story of a real prodigal son, the story of miraculous forgiveness and change that lies behind the powerful words of one of the world's most beloved hymns.
