A. B. Simpson's book motivating Christians to stay on the path of virtue is just as strong, moving and eloquent today as when it was first published. Beginning by comparing the genuine gospel of Jesus Christ with the sort of sentiment that is spoken on Earth, Simpson immediately grips the reader with a series of frank declarations. With skill and fervor, he ably declares the core pillars of the Gospels in straight talking language. This ability - to capture the reader's attention and instill the virtue of the New Testament - distinguished Simpson both on the pulpit and on the page. The entire truth of the Bible is examined by Simpson, who neglects no passage in getting the message across. Often the subtexts and meanings of certain verses elude even the experienced Christian; it is thus that this book is good for both new believers and Christians well-acquainted with the holy texts. Keenly devoted to the principles of the Lord, A. B. Simpson does not soften or compromise his message for his audience. Famous in life for urging his congregation to follow Christ as closely as possible, and not summon excuses as to why they could not, Simpson's beliefs are echoed in this book. If we are to truly live the Christ Life - where we behave and act according to the wishes of Jesus - the truest sacrifice and strength is what is needed.
