A Face Like Flint
It is all very well to say that a Christian should take the Lord Jesus Christ as their life model, but where do you find simple, clear teaching written with a pastor’s heart on this vital subject? This book is the answer: in short, easily read sections Jeremy Walker follows the determined path of the Lord in saving his people, and shows how the Christian can pattern mind and life after the Saviour. The brevity of this work betrays its significance. Rarely have I been so challenged and encouraged by a single book. It is demanding and convicting, and yet instructive and hopeful. Like a compass, it turns the reader back to the heart of true discipleship. Initially, it deserves multiple readings, and then, it should be read once a year to help the believer maintain the course. Paul Washer, Founder and Missions Director of HeartCry Missionary Society This is a great little book that is much needed at the present time, written by a real man of God for whom I have huge respect. It considers the Lord Jesus Christ as he sets out on his way to Jerusalem to accomplish our salvation. The Lord Jesus of the Bible, the one to whom this book points us, is what a real man should be: clear-eyed with unflinching determination, conviction, self-discipline and courage. But he is not cold or stoic. To quote Jeremy, “Christ had a face like flint because he had a heart on fire.” I recommend this book enthusiastically and pray that we will have the same flint-like determination to seek God, make our salvation sure, put sin to death, increase in holiness, be godly husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, children, church members, and to carry out whatever we have been called to carry out for the kingdom.
