Here are some of the kind endorsements we’ve received for the forthcoming book PROOF. Thanks to everyone who took the time to read the manuscript and to provide feedback on the contents!
In PROOF Daniel Montgomery and Timothy Paul Jones paint a multifaceted picture of grace that is refreshing to the soul, edifying to the church, and magnetic to those who have experienced that grace first hand.
–Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research
Don’t let the title PROOF fool you: this is not a traditional book about apologetics. It is a book that works out how Christians themselves are the “proof” of God’s grace. Instead of viewing robust biblical teaching as a deadening weight on vital Christian living, these two authors are busy finding freedom through the intoxicating joy of irresistible grace~(as the subtitle puts it). The detailed endnotes will satisfy more intellectual readers, but the rest of the book will prove a great help to the rest of us who want to learn in experience how some of the central truths of the gospel transform not only our thinking but our lives.
–D. A. Carson, Research Professor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
PROOF is one of the most well-reasoned and heart-engaging presentations of the Reformed faith I have read since becoming a Christian in 1968. Rooted in the history of theology, faithful to the text of Scripture, and accessible to a contemporary audience, these brothers throw the curtains wide open on the contours and grandeur of the gospel.
–Scotty Smith, Teacher-in-Residence, West End Community Church
PROOF is biblical, forceful, winsome, and clear about who God is, how God works, and what God wants. Daniel and Timothy have given us a treasure!
–Darrin Patrick, Pastor, The Journey
A book on the doctrines of grace that delights as much as it challenges? That exhilarates as much as it informs? That entertains as it enlightens? Be still my beating heart. … PROOF is a rare breed indeed. Get it, savor it, let it bowl you over with the spectacular grace of God.
–Jared Wilson, author of The Storytelling God
This book demonstrates a wealth of reflection on both modern and ancient sources, helping us re-discover the scandal of the gospel.
–J.D. Greear, author of Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart
Daniel and Timothy will take you on a journey of grace in a way that you’ve never lived it before!
–Gregg R. Allison, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
By unpacking the doctrines of grace in a fresh way, PROOF gives to the twenty-first century Christians a potent and powerful summary of what God has done for sinners.
–Phillip Holmes, Vice President, Reformed African-American Network
PROOF is a fresh, new approach to the historical doctrines of grace. It will refresh and encourage the veteran learner and provide substance without the complicated jargon for the novice.
–Trillia Newbell, author of United: Captured by God’s Vision for Diversity.
Sadly, the doctrines of grace have often been used to score theological points. But PROOF shows how grace changes lives and brings joy.
–Tim Chester, Associate Director, Porterbrook Seminary
At the end of PROOF you will walk away with a comprehensive knowledge of grace, and even more importantly, with a heart of worship for the Grace-Giver.
–Flame, Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist, ClearSightMusic.com
Modern believers, who often unknowingly swing from license to legalism in their attempts to please God, need this joyous proclamation of the plan of salvation. This is a wonderful way of introducing the Canons of Dort to the heirs of the Me Generation.
–Eric Redmond, Professor in Residence, New Canaan Baptist Church
If predestination has often felt stodgy and stifling, this book’s for you. PROOF is not your standard portrayal of Reformed theology. It’s unlike anything I’ve come across before. The style is engaging, the stories are captivating, the logic is compelling, and best of all the theology is rock solid and biblically faithful. Trust me, you’ll love this book (even when you don’t agree with it!).
–Sam Storms, Lead Pastor, Bridgeway Church
Pastorally wise and academically rigorous, … PROOF will pull you into the conversation and press you to consider afresh the biblical text and your own experience of God’s grace.
–J. Michael Thigpen, Executive Director, Evangelical Theological Society
PROOF contrasts true grace with our typical perception of grace in a way that will drive souls to experience freedom, joy, and worship.
–Rebekah Hannah, Columbia University Christian Union Ministry Fellow
PROOF is a gift that not only stirred my affections toward Christ but also overwhelmed me with the continual and sustaining work of the Gospel in our lives.
–John Bryson, Pastor, Fellowship Memphis, Acts 29 Executive Board Member
Daniel Montgomery doesn’t just understand grace. … No, grace arrested him, then grace tutored him, and now grace compels him to help others stand amazed.
–Dave Harvey, Pastor, Four Oaks Community Church
PROOF paints a powerful picture that the gospel is not a cheap bucket of grace that sits at the foot of the cross. Rather, the gospel is an ever-flowing, deep river of irresistible grace that flows from the foot of the cross.
–Brian Croft, Senior Pastor, Auburndale Baptist Church
PROOF is engaging, memorably written and full of tight, biblical thinking. This is deep, soul-nourishing theology restated for a new generation.
–Greg Gilbert, co-author of What is the Mission of the Church?
Daniel and Timothy ground their book in the truth of Scripture and call for mystery, paradox, beauty, community, and mission to become a regular part of our grammar regarding grace. I cannot wait to get this book into our people’s hands!
–Kevin Cawley, Pastor, Redeemer Fellowship
