Of Snakes and Strategies

“Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ” by Russell D. Moore – a recommendation.

Books

If there is such a thing as a man-authored ‘must read’ book then this is it. Moore does his readers great benefit by taking a lingering look at the Temptation of Jesus. He relentlessly reveals layer beneath layer of insight and understanding and easily moves from the cosmic to the personal; from truth to application. You will come to know yourself and know your Adversary and you may never be the same again. But most of all know (and be hidden in) the One who could say “the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me” – John 14:30.

Here is rescue, hope, knowledge and nourishment. Just don’t ask to borrow my copy – I’ll be putting this one through many re-reads.
