Book Description

A reviewer described Maurice Roberts’ earlier book The Thought of God as ‘a contemporary work with the depth of the classics which speaks across denominational and cultural lines’. His new book has the same classic quality and universal Christian appeal. The theme is the Christian life as a high and glorious calling, with present enjoyment, duties and conflicts, leading to the unutterable glory and holiness of the world to come.

Readers will glimpse afresh the beauty and majesty of God and the priceless privilege of being called to an unending fellowship with him.

  1. Thiago Gomes

    This series, which has three books on the Christian life, is one of the best daily devotional books I have ever read. They are lively and spiritual, and at the same time carry doctrinal precision.
    They are very useful and warm readings. I have sincere respect for Maurice Roberts and his writings.
