“This book was born twenty-five years ago on a very bad night. As a young Christian (I converted at eighteen) I struggled greatly with the sin that was all too noticeable in my life. Some of my teachers at the time believed in the “victorious Christian life” theology. Victory over sin was mine, they taught, if I would just walk by the Spirit, if I would just “let go and let God.” I tried, with all the faith I could muster, to do just that. It didn’t seem to work. However I tried to “let go,” I found myself just as much a prisoner of selfishness and lust as I was before. One night—the bad night—I confessed this frankly to one of our leaders and asked for help. His answer changed my life.”
Thus begins the introduction to Righteous Sinners by Gutenberg tutor Ron Julian. Originally published in 1998 by NavPress, Righteous Sinners is available as an e-book from Gutenberg College Press at Amazon.com.
J. I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology at Regent College, commends the book: “Biblically exact and pastorally profound, this book is a gem!”
Paperback copies of the original book are also available from Gutenberg College.
