Nonfiction Review: Unparalleled

I was pleasantly surprised by the way Jared C. Wilson presented many of the same points I have read before in new and thought-provoking ways. His book, "Unparalleled," presents the Christian Gospel through the frame of how it perfectly and uniquely fits real life. Wilson discusses how Christ's sacrifice satisfied God's wrath and allowed God's grace, and he presents that grace as separate from other works-based faiths. "Unparalleled" also uncovers the way the Trinity explains our need for love and relationships, considers how Christianity defines human-kind as worth-while in itself (not just for its use), balances fallen man with the sacred nature of life, gives clear Biblical support for Christ's claims, and concludes with a strong and orthodox presentation of the Gospel message and call to salvation. Wilson's stories and points are eloquent and worth a second read. I will be going back to take notes on this one.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
