Call it burnout, a spiritual breakdown, or a personal crisis, the toll of Bill Tell’s decades of successful ministry finally caught up with him. Incapacitated and depressed, he found that the road to recovery began at the cross. To his delight, healing opened new freedoms as he embraced the gospel in new ways.
Lay It Down: Living in the Freedom of the Gospel is a bold declaration of the overwhelming grace of God. More than merely saving us in our sin, by grace God delivers us from it, making us new creations and treating us accordingly – no matter what. For a generation of Christians who have learned a gospel of performance and striving, Lay It Down offers the good news of the grace that is already ours in Christ.
In Lay It Down: Living in the Freedom of the Gospel, Bill Tell writes out of his personal experiences in understanding the freedom the grace of God offers. And still, his book speaks with relevance to any Christian reader stuck in performance-based beliefs. With a lot of Scriptural insight and reminders of the freedom of the Gospel, Lay It Down offers a beneficial read - one I found quite helpful and powerful. I would have no problem recommending to other readers.
