What does God expect from those who follow the teachings of Jesus? What can be considered the right Christian behavior? In Victorious Faith in Jesus Christ: Creates Good Christian Conduct, Joan Jessalyn Cox gives very compelling answers to these questions and defines a path that believers can use to allow faith to triumph in their lives. One of the things that the reader will immediately learn is that faith isn’t just something we proclaim with our lips, but a stimulus that prompts us to take actions that shape the world and prepare it for an eventual encounter with Christ. And one might ask: Isn’t it burdensome and challenging to live according to the Scriptures? On the contrary, embracing the truths of the faith communicated in the Bible isn’t burdensome, but liberating, and the author of this book demonstrates how and explains why.
I didn’t doubt that Joan Jessalyn Cox has spent an enormous amount of time learning the mysteries of God and connecting deeply with Christ through His word. She writes beautifully and her message is couched in a language that is easy to understand. I enjoyed her extensive use of biblical references and the fact that she doesn’t use quotations out of their contexts. Victorious Faith in Jesus Christ: Creates Good Christian Conduct is a well-researched and brilliantly articulated book that will help every Christian redefine their identity and transform their faith in a way of living. I found the book contained powerful answers to some of the questions people ask today, ethical and moral questions that are pressing in this day and age. This is a book for those who want to take their relationship with God seriously.
