The subtitle to this book is 'How the Trinity shapes the Christian story' and the author calls
readers to discover that the whole Christian story is founded upon the triune God's self-giving and our belonging to God. It provides a compelling vision of Christian faith and life, helping readers explore the uniqueness of the gospel – that God's kingdom comes not by taking but by giving. God gives himself! We are invited into the fullness of life that can only come through the gift of God's divine generosity.
Taking readers through the grand biblical narrative of creation, fall, redemption, and kingdom, Kelly Kapic enables us to see our story in and through the story of Scripture. Everything belongs to God, yet because of our turning and taking from him, we experience a suffocating bondage to sin. But God gives and reclaims us through his Son and by his Spirit, inviting us to participate in his kingdom. This book is practical Christianity at its best: intellectually astute, humane, and animated by the gospel's generosity.
