The Art of Turning (La joie d'une conscience pure)
Consciousness, in a way, appears to us as a mysterious phenomenon. How should we listen to him? Can we trust him? What is its role in our life? We often don't know the answer to these questions.
In The Joy of Pure Consciousness , Kevin DeYoung teaches us that consciousness is not a concept to be debunked, but a gift from God to be celebrated. The author argues that in order to be free from our guilt and shame, we must listen to our conscience and turn to Jesus Christ. This book, firmly anchored in Scripture and easy to understand, will lead us to discover the joy of turning to Christ daily. This is how our conscience becomes pure: when we understand that the blood of Jesus covers all our sins.
Kevin DeYoung is the pastor of Christ Covenant Church in Matthews, North Carolina. He is the author of numerous books, many of which have been translated into French. Kevin and his wife have seven children: Ian, Jacob, Elizabeth, Paul, Mary, Benjamin and Tabitha.
“All Christians should experience the joy of a pure conscience. Kevin DeYoung explains why this is important and how to make it happen. I strongly invite you to read this book, then to buy several copies for those around you. ”
- Matthieu Giralt, pastor and blogger on ToutPourSaGloire.com
"Kevin DeYoung gives us a thought-provoking explanation of what awareness is, how to have a clear conscience, and why it matters."
- Andy Naselli, Assistant Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Bethlehem College & Seminary
“Here is a wonderfully clear teaching on the subject of pure consciousness. It is instructive, and perhaps even surprising, to find out all the Bible tells us about this subject that we too often overlook. ”
