God So Loved, He Gave: Entering the Movement of Divine Generosity is written by Kelly M. Kapic Professor of Christian Studies at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia, along with Justin Borger, who serves as the Generosity Content Director for the Maclellan Foundation. The book is broken down into three sections: First, from belonging to bondage, second God Reclaims all by giving all: Son, Spirit and Kingdom, and in the final chapters concludes with living in the gifts: cross, resurrection church.=

Jerry Bridges, in the endorsing, this book notes that this work should be read attentively and prayerfully, and he’s spot on with that statement. This is an important book, one that is grounded in the premise that God’s generosity in creating the world, and specifically in sending the gift of His Son to do His work in the Cross and Resurrection.

This work is thoroughly grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The authors explain how God created a good and perfect world, but that world turned from him and now- the Father loved the world and gave the Son, and the Father and the Son pour out the gift of the Spirit into the hearts of humanity bringing about praise, hope, and new creation. The Gospel in this work is never assumed but rather explained in great detail.

As the argument continues to unfold in the book, the reader will get a greater sense of the work of God in the creation and the Word of God. The authors conclude this book by looking at the practical ramifications for all they have said, but even then they do not revert to self-help but ground all they say in the Word of God.

This is a book that received glowing endorsements from many men, I highly regard such as Justin Taylor, Dr. Bridges, Dr. Horton, and Dr. Chappell and their endorsements are well deserved. This is a book that will challenge you to see the gift of eternal life and how God calls you in every area of life to live out the precious Gospel of Jesus Christ. I recommend you get this book and be challenged to see the preciousness of the Gospel anew as a gift from God.
