Evangelical Repentance (Qu'est-ce que la repentance selon la Bible ?)
Repentance - is there anything more unpopular, if not frightening?
Indeed, it demands that sinful man humble himself before the God against whom he has stood up. It also demands that he turn away from the sin with which his heart is so enamored. In fact, repentance is frightening because it is impossible for a man unless the Spirit of God works on him.
And yet, is there a more necessary subject?
Necessary, because without repentance no man will see eternal life, but he will certainly perish. It is an essential element of salvation according to the Bible.
Necessary also because great ignorance reigns about it today, even in the Church. Lots of deviations and mistakes have arisen and appeal to a lot of people.
This book is therefore welcome. It presents repentance in a practical way applicable to modern thinking and living. Far from providing simplistic and misleading slogans, it examines the various facets of the subject in depth.
Where does repentance come from? What is it ? How is it essential and necessary for salvation? How to recognize between true and false repentance? What are the fruits, the proofs? What is its true place in the unfolding of salvation?
So many answers to guide the reader to come to Christ, whether in initial repentance, or in his usual exercise in daily life.
