Brenton Williams was born in 1947 to non-christian parents and, apart from attending a local Sunday School, had no Christian faith or beliefs.
He met his wife, Coral, in 1970 who was a member of The Salvation Army and converted that year. He joined The Salvation Army as a member and in 1975 felt a call from God to full-time ministry. He and his wife trained and became Salvation Army Officers for 11 years moving around New Zealand to various posts.
His search for truth led him to question some of the tenets of the Army and in 1984 he left The Salvation Army to start a small charismatic group where he still ministers today.
The truths in his books are based on first-hand experience and a desire to discover a real and true faith. Central to that is a close and intimate personal relationship with Jesus Christ. His heart desire is to help other believers come to know Jesus as a friend and lover and thereby prepare them for an eternity of wedded bliss with their chosen bridegroom.
This book takes a fresh look at the old subject of sin. The first section is about basic attitudes and the retoration of what was lost at the Fall. The second section looks at the reconciliation process. The third section sets out to redefine sin. The fourth section studies how truth sets us free from from old ways and the final section looks at the importance of becoming mature believers.
This book explores the theme that God is more interested in why we do things than in what we do. The motives and attitudes behind what we do are far more important to Him than the actual actions. What we do may appear right, but why we do that may be wrong. The book studies the renewing of the heart and mind so that we can think and feel like God
The premise of this book is that God is love. Everything that God is, IS love. Everything that God does comes from love. If we are to be like Him, we also need to understand and become love. This book sets out to explain what love really is and how to gain that love for ourselves.
Relationships are the key to doing that and the author shows how love grows from interacting with others.
