i just finished this book last weekend. it was one of piper's easier reads. i am not sure if i am just getting smarter or if someone told piper he needed to take it down a notch so that us non-theologians could get through a book of his and understand it. either way, i recommend this!
piper does a great job explaining what it means to be born again, a term we often ignore, because if we were honest, our understanding of it is not better than nicodemas'.
here are a few things that i really enjoyed from the book. i really liked (and needed) the reminder that being born again is something that god does. he initiates it. i cannot. i know that, but my little heart keeps trying to prove that i can. i loved his explanation of 1 john. so many reassurances of salvation! i was challenged by his explanations of the implications of being born again. what does that mean for me? it was a great read.
