The gospel of Jesus Christ is not about what Jesus can do for your life. It is not even the answer to the question, “How can I be saved?” It is the declaration of a victory. In His coming to earth, His suffering, and His Resurrection, Christ conquered demons, sin, and death. In Arise, O God, author and podcaster Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick introduces us to the spiritual war that Christ won by His victory, how we are caught in that war’s cosmic crossfire, what the true content of the gospel is—and how we are to respond.
A Concise Understanding of the Gospel
This book provides a concise description of the Gospel as understood by the Orthodox Church. Fr Andrew writes clearly without using theological jargon of more advanced texts.
I would recommend this to both Orthodox and non-Orthodox readers. For the Orthodox to understand better what their own Tradition teaches and for the non-Orthodox to gain understanding that the Orthodox Church is far deeper and richer than just ‘smells and bells’.
Absolute must read for any Catechumens or anyone for that matter.
Absolutely eye opening. WOW. As a new orthodox this just blew my mind and gave me a brand new, fresh lens to view the Grand scale of the Kingdom of God and our roles.
Thank you Fr!!!!!!!!
