The news is dominated by reports of inhumanity and tragedy. Things seem to go from bad to worse, and hope is hard to find. What is wrong with the world? Despite technological progress, humanity cannot overcome the senseless strife that plagues every generation.
Into this world comes good news that shines so bright it turns the night sky into daylight. The good news is God news! God the Father so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son Jesus to rescue us from sin and eternal punishment.
Many Christians know this good news but keep it to themselves. Yet the good news is too good to not share. Bodanza gives us an example of sharing the good news from his weekly column in a hometown newspaper. Use it to speak boldly, or give it to another to read. The gospel message is timeless and speaks to the ultimate issue of our lives.
David P. Bodanza is the pastor of Mission Street Congregational Church in Massachusetts. He is also a practicing lawyer. He holds an MDiv degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a JD from New England School of Law. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Brenda, and four children.
“Largely oriented at evangelizing the unsaved, this intriguing book is an eclectic collection of fifty-two short articles originally written for a small-town newspaper by a season local pastor who is quite creative – sometimes telling stories, sometimes writing an opinion piece, and sometimes recounting dialogues between people. Give a copy to your curious but unconverted friend who is halting between two opinions.” – Dr. Joel R. Beeke, president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
