Popular evangelist Clayton King has preached to tens of thousands of people and has seen countless people turn form their life of sin to a life of righteousness through his traveling preaching ministry. In his new book, Overcome: Replacing the Lies That Hold Us Down with the Truths That Set Us Free produced by Baker Books, King explains the Gospel in a simple yet understandable way. This book is not aimed at a specific audience demographic, saved or unredeemed, young or old, male or female, anyone will find this book helpful. This shotgun approach is very useful when explaining the simplicity of the Gospel of grace to those this good news is unknown or badly misunderstood.
In each chapter King explains who God is, in His attributes, and what He has done, in his works. He does this so that the reader will in someway increase their knowledge of who God is and understand the love His actions bear. In this work King, also examines hot button topics such as God’s design for human sexuality and the sovereignty of God. This is a good short book, espousing orthodox Christian principles exposited from a conservative Baptist minister.
