What does it mean to be "born again?" Many Christians aren't even sure what it means, and those outside the church often equate it with judgement and hypocritical behavior. In Finally Alive, John Piper argues that this term has lost it's true meaning. To that end, he takes you back to what the New Testament says about being born again, and shows you how powerful, transforming and radical new birth in Christ really is.
This book is an amazing read. I have enjoyed every chapter, and studying the Scripture along with the text. It's challenging and seems to always call me to "test myself to see that I am in the faith." Again, another wonderful book from John Piper !!
I can't say enough good things about this book. It details biblically what being born again really is, how it happens and why God gets all the glory. This is much less a novel or a narrative than it is a long expository sermon. Piper basically takes you verse by verse and explains the new birth piece by piece and step by step. He also exposes biblically false convesion. Finally, after finishing with that...Piper shares the ministry we have and our duty to share with others "the good news that was preached to you," so we can be used by God in order that dead people would be finally alive.
Great Book I think all young&older christians should read this. Why because it explain truly how regeneration(being saved)work and what roll the individual play in being saved and if the person were to get off track the book explain how to get back in line with the LORD. Finally Alive Great Book!!!!!
