This is a very encouraging little book, pointing to two words that function as the hinge of all gospel living. There is a problem, a dilemma, a crisis, a trouble, and God’s people are up against it. This happens time and again in the Scriptures. And the next two words are but God . . .
Casey Lute walks through the Scriptures, pointing to nine key instances of this. He starts with Noah. “But God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the livestock that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided” (Gen. 8:1, ESV).
The God of the Bible is the God who saves, and He saves us in the middle of the story. The problem is sketched out and made clear, and then, when all hope is lost, we hear the words but God. God loves cliffhangers.
But God remembered Noah. But God delivered Israel at the Red Sea. But God raised Jesus from the dead. This book is a quick read, but quite meaty for all that.
