Sin is Unattainable!
What if it were impossible to sin? What if all notion of 'good' and 'evil' were banished from our choices? What if the will of God were so embedded into our spiritual DNA that his point of view has become our point of view, his will our will?
Then what freedoms would ensue!
Well, all of this is true! In this groundbreaking work of rigorous, Bible-centered analysis, the author spells out the full extent of Christ's liberation in our lives, from how we think, feel, and act, to what we do with our bodies and with whom! Fear, worry, and condemnation are driven out, and in their place reign love and grace, 'the unmerited favor of God'.
Meanwhile, this book draws on great thinkers and writers of the ages: the Christian storytellers ranging from C.S. Lewis to John Bunyan; the poets from Dante to Shakespeare; and the mystics from St. John of the Cross to Oswald Chambers.
The result is a milestone of literature and liberation, a blueprint for transformation, a love letter in the service of peace and joy.
'A majestic flow of words.'

'Abdiel LeRoy shares that bliss of freedom of conscience in everything we do. He is one of our treasured spiritual guides—a man who cares deeply about setting us free from the unnecessary restrictions imposed on us, as well as those that are self-imposed! Read this book and breathe freedom. Highly Recommended.'
