DISCIPLESHIP MATTERS
Dying to Live for Christ
By Peter Maiden
IVP. 157 pages. £8.99
ISBN 978 1 783 593 552

Cheap grace is a danger for the church.

This lies at the heart of Peter Maiden’s book. He is concerned that we do not compartmentalise God; acknowledging God on a Sunday, but forgetting him on a Monday. It is a challenge not just to those who are nominal in their faith but a challenge to all believers to live consistently and completely for Christ. He makes it clear that God is sovereign over everything and as such we should submit the whole of our lives to him. This is a book full of encouragements and rebukes but the lesson is clear: living for Jesus involves living a transformed life, not because of duty, but because of a restored relationship with God.
