Each of the 10 chapters is well written and flows in Harvey's unique and readable style. As well as thorough Biblical reasoning for each point being discussed the author has also forwarded many of the chapters with biographical material from some of the giants of ministry. For these notes alone the book is worth the read. This is not a heavy read but a thought provoking and enjoyable one. I wish I had had such a book 25 years ago as I struggled with my call to the ministry. Reading this has confirmed to me - stick at it!
From now on this will be my standard text for giving to young men both to persuade and dissuade regarding gospel ministry.

If this book is not on every seminary reading list for evangelism then it ought to be. Not that you will agree with all that you read. It is a volume to ignite the heart. It should come with a warning though - "This book might seriously change the direction of your life." And isn't that what we are looking for.

God caused City to win yesterday so Man U supporters who have worshipped their team so faithfully might look up and find the One who never disappoints, always produces the goods, satisfies with ultimate victory over our sin that would condemn us to hell if He had not taken the hell that we deserved. When the final whistle blew yesterday God was declaring - come unto Me, worship Me, follow Me and you will have total joy. If you are a Man U fan your sad heart at losing is God saying - stop worshipping your idol and turn to My Son Jesus and trust in Him. If you are a City fan - when your gloating is over so will be your pleasure and you too must turn to Christ, repent of your sin for worshipping anything but the living God. If you are a Christian use the epic end to the season to speak of the Ultimate winner who never lets His fans down - Jesus Christ.
