Synopses & Reviews
Just Words explores the language used by the Bible's writers to describe and convey what it is that God has done for us in Christ. It helps the reader see the wonderful variety, rich texture, and clear doctrine with which God communicates His Good News. Through six metaphors, Preus interprets and applies the Gospel to virtually all of life's contexts: creation, commerce, legal, personal, sacrifice, and deliverance.
