Repentance. From Jesus's own adoption of repentance at his baptism and the opening word of his preaching, the theme winds its way through his ministry and into our lives. We see Peter, the exemplar of repentance, and the unfortunate Judas, caught up in remorse. We look at sins both personal and collective, and at God forgiving and healing. Above all we see Jesus taking on the sin of the whole world and bringing the kingdom of God so very close, this kingdom of love which brings us to our knees in adoration. This book tellingly brings home the wonderful, humble love of God to be found in Jesus. ""Bourguet beautifully unveils the way of repentance--the heart-cry of John the forerunner, of Christ and of Peter--as radiant with the light of the risen One. Neither ominous nor vacuous, true repentance is indeed good news "" --Brad Jersak, Author, Her Gates Will Never Be Shut ""Daniel Bourguet offers here a study on biblical repentance that is rich and nuanced, nourishing Christian faith and practice. This excellent book offers finely tuned presentations of repentance, remorse, guilt, confession, forgiveness, and conversion in ways that clarify and inspire the path forward for radical discipleship. Bourguet's keen observations about the differences and complementarities of John the Baptist's preaching repentance from that of Jesus and the apostles in each of the Gospels inspires more rigorous reading of the Bible and longing to experience more deeply the nearness of Jesus' kingdom."" --Bob Ekblad, Tierra Nueva and The People's Seminary; Author of Reading the Bible with the Damned and A New Christian Manifesto Daniel Bourguet has been a pastor in the French Reformed Church. He has exercised a range of ministries in the local church and in theological institutions.
