      John, just finished BiV.  Started to cry when I saw where you were going at the very end, encouraging us to look to Jesus, know Him and His great love more personally and share His love with others.  And the call back to the basics, reading the Bible objectively for ourselves, asking, “Who is talking? Who are they talking to? What is the occasion/context?” and to simply believe the letters in red at face value, is exactly what we need to hear.  Besides the “each of them will sit under his vine and under his fig tree, with no one to make them afraid”, I was also reminded of Micah, 6:8, “He has told you, o man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”  
       
      I also loved your admonition to not ask or answer the “where do you go to church” question, how telling.  For believers, He is our dwelling place and dwelling in us.  He is the “pure doctrine”, and safety.

      Also appreciated that you encouraged readers to seek the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as a subsequent gift to His indwelling upon regeneration.  I received it a few years after coming to faith, and it made a profound difference in understanding the Bible.  Maybe it had something to do with reading in increased faith, with a fuller understanding of being loved and accepted by God.

      Thank you. I am glad you liked the book.  It is always a thrill to hear how it impacts. 
       
      And yes, the baptism in the spirit…  I get mixed reviews on that particular score.  Oh well, I can’t imagine living without it. So I advocate.
