Steven Lawson understands how important it is to feed God's people from His Word. He is concerned that what started as a genuine attempt to attract a broader hearing by moving away from Scripture, has grown into a crisis in the church. He is convinced that we must return to expository preaching, "the man of God opening the Word of God and expounding its truths so that the voice of God may be heard, the glory of God seen, and the will of God obeyed." Lawson calls the church back to Scripture-to restore its commitment to let God's own words speak.
The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in the field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field (Mat 13:44) This book contains seven land purchases in the Bible, (there are only seven,) which are written in seven different ways of the same story of Mat 13:44. Consider the story of Jesus Christ and Him crucified in the form of a parable, which is so rich that only Jesus could have told us. It is amazing how these lovely seven land purchases provide additional insight in the Gospel story.

In 1927 American Presbyterians chose to stop listing and insisting upon "the essential tenets of the Reformed faith"; instead, they emphasized tolerance and essential action. Since then, historic, biblically based Christianity has been supplanted more and more by a different religion, dubbed Religious Liberalism by the author, within the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States. This, coupled with decades of removing practical means of holding pastors accountable for any of their beliefs and much of their behavior, is leading to that denomination's demise in the early years of the 21st Century. The author combines historical overview and perspective with his own experiences as a pastor of Presbyterian churches in North Carolina to make his case.
