"But Now" The Gospel Perspective
To follow his two volumes on Scripture verses containing the phrase ‘But God’, Tony Bennett offers this volume of 31 devotional expositions on verses containing the phrase ‘But now.’ This phrase usually presents a biblical truth in a ‘then . . . but now’ format in which the ‘then’ is what happened before Christ died, or before we came to a living faith in him, whereas the ‘now’ is what resulted from Christ’s death,
resurrection and ascension and our coming to that moment of saving faith in him.
And what tremendous words they are, what the great preacher of the last century Martyn Lloyd-Jones called ‘the great turning point in God dealing with the human race,’ whilst another commentator calls them, ‘God’s great “nevertheless” in the
face of man’s failures.’
