In this issue of Theology for Life Magazine, we’ve been considering the subject of divine justice and how it impacts the life of the Christian and ministry. We understand that we haven’t covered everything on this topic, but it is our prayer that—hopefully—readers of this issue of Theology for Life will grow in their understanding of God’s justice so they can grow in His grace.

If you’ve found this issue helpful and would like to study this subject further, please check out the following reading list below. These books are at the top of their genre in both excellence and readability.

  • Dark Clouds, Deep Mercy by Mark Vroegop
  • The Cross of Christ by John Stott
  • Pierced for Our Transgressions by Steve Jeffery, Michael Ovey, and Andrew Sach
  • It is Well by Mark Dever and Michael Lawrence.
  • In My Place Condemned He Stood: Celebrating the Glory of the Atonement by J.I. Packer and Mark Dever

I hope you find these as helpful in your walk with the Lord as I have.

In Christ Alone,

Dave Jenkins

Executive Editor, Theology for Life Magazine
