A sober examination of the "ear Tickling" Preaching of another gospel, that is not the Gospel. Man pleasing entertainment. Men are not warned of their damned state, they are not told their thoughts are only evil continually. They are hell bent depraved sinners who cannot save themselves, but are given "easy Steps for self improvement and an abundant life of self-esteem encouragement. God has been disrobed of his Majestic Sovereignty and is a good old buddy that likes everyone and hopes you will like him too. There is no presenting of an offended Holy God who wrath is kindled against the Cosmic Treason of sinful mankind. There need be no concern that the unrepentant are "sinners in the hands of an Angry God"… (more)

I thought I would enjoy this book because I enjoyed Chantry's pamphlet on "The Covenants of Works and of Grace". How wrong I was. This book severely misconstrues the Kingdom of God.

Like many other characters in Scripture, the prophet Habakkuk word for 'embrace' and conveys the idea of a wrestler in an embrace with his opponent. As Walter Chantry shows in this absorbing book, Habakkuk lived out his name by wrestling with God in prayer in the midst of a national and international situation resembling our own in many respects. As we read his prophecy, we hear Habakkuk pray, then listen as the Almighty responds. The divine response at first seems overwhelming. Yet at its centre is a glorious revelation of the very heart of the gospel. In this brief exposition, previously published in the Banner of Truth magazine, Chantry draws out themes that are timely, challenging, but ultimately full of comfort.… (more)
