The victory of the lamb (La victoire de l'Agneau)
In this comprehensive book, the author traces the origins of the millennial conflict between Satan and God that culminates in Golgotha. It shows what are the stakes and the mechanisms of this war between the Creator and the powers of evil. But he consistently does so in terms of the devil's defeat and Christ's complete victory.
A book that examines how evil rebellion and its consequences through the fall of man ultimately serve the sovereign purpose of the God of grace. Christ's victory has never been in doubt. Moreover, its fruits and consequences surpass the lost paradise as much as the Lord is in control of all things.
The author gives us, among other things, an insightful and revealing analysis of the Lord's temptation in the desert. Finally, he paints a marvelous picture of Christ's final victory when he presents to his Father this glorious, pure and spotless Church, for which he gave his life.
A victory of great value, certainly, but which was accomplished at great cost, for it is the victory of the Lamb slain .
