Book Review: No Longer I? by Howard Webber

4 May 2016

By Howard Webber

Often, when we long to do what is pleasing to God, it seems that there are insurmountable problems and difficulties that Satan throws at us in all manner of subtle ways.

Living the Christian life can seem a uphill struggle with little of the joy Jesus promised and much heartache and disappointment. In despair we can well feel like giving up. Some of our worst attacks come from within the fellowship to which we belong.

Yet, we know that Jesus has been there. His worst experiences were not caused by those outside the fellowship of God’s people, but from within, and his biggest disappointments were with his own disciples. Yet, living in that often hostile environment, he spoke of possessing a joy and peace and, amidst it all, he lived a perfect, victorious, holy life of love, the life to which he calls every one of us.

It took me years of struggle before I discovered and accepted that what he required was an impossibility. Only then did I begin to realise that it wasn’t about what I could do with his help, but what he could do if only I would get out of the way! No Longer I? is about that struggle and that discovery. Half of the book, as with my first book, Meeting Jesus: Inspiring stories of modern-day evangelism, is stories, and the second half is a look at the discoveries I made in the light of scripture. My prayer is that some fellow struggler might also find release and liberty on reading this book, and find reading it an very enriching experience.
