Review:

Matthew Henry brilliantly said it, "God has wisely kept us in the dark concerning future events and reserved for himself the knowledge of them, that he may train us up in a dependence upon himself and a continued readiness for every event."

We tend to think of prophecy as a revealing of future events, but in the New Testament we find that the prophetic gift is second only to that of apostolic ministry and is a special form of the teaching gift. Its about making known of the divine will, so that we might receive His Son, Jesus Christ. Aaron Chalmers offers something really rich and hermetically excellent in this resource. The 'going deeper' and 'considering this' sections are the real treasures in this volume.

Here there is a well thought through methodology which will assist many in the interpretative work on texts. Greatly scriptural confidence will result, from this. Soulish believers are rightly inordinately curious. This is a nourishing, wise and insightful volume that will assist many.
