Overall, the book is good, however it is very, very dense in presentation of the material. I could only absorb limited amounts of it at a time. However, when you absorb what the author is presenting, it can help provide you with a good presentation of the incorrect view that many of us have about believing that we “have to do it all”. It will guide you through changing that approach to life.

"Beloved, you and I are secure in the love of the Father, the grace of the Son, and the fellowship of the Spirit. May this security allow us to celebrate our limits as part of God’s good work. May this security drive us back to our God, to one another, and even to our right dependence on the rest of creation. May this security encourage our work, liberate our rest, and free us to love and serve others. God made us to be limited creatures, able to freely participate in his work, confident in his presence, and grateful for his promises and provision. Let us appreciate the goodness of our finitude as we rest in the love and provision of our infinitely good God. May it be so."

With this closing prayer, Kapic summarizes the essence of his message. It seems like we should know better, but we live our lives assuming we can do anything or everything—or at least we should. But, he argues effectively and pastorally, we are by God's design created with limitations. These limitations are not evil or sinful, but are built in to each human. Realizing our limits can free us rather than frustrate us.

Great book!

Academic level essays on sanctification from a reformed perspective. Some were excellent and some were over my head but overall a very good read with ideas that challenged me.
