Do the good works Christians do matter at all? This pivotal question has many people either mistakenly trying to earn salvation or working to maintain it. However, all it takes is understanding where these works fit into God's plan in order to be freed from the confusion and futility of what the Bible calls dead works. From Xulon Press author Deborah Wittmier comes a trailblazing new book, Crowns: Five Eternal Rewards That Will Change the Way You Live Your Life ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-248-1), which untangles the concepts of salvation by grace and reward for works. Learn what the Bible says about the various heavenly rewards promised to Christians and how to earn them.
"Over the years, I have witnessed much confusion within the body of Christ related to the doctrine of salvation for the lost and the doctrine of rewards for those already saved," the author explains. "I wrote Crowns so that the reader's perspective will be lifted from the temporal to the eternal. My hope is that the reader will be empowered by this knowledge of heavenly reward and that what is learned in these pages will clarify the sense of eternal purpose and vision as Christians walk with God into the fullness of what He has planned."
An ordained minister who has been teaching the Bible since 1984, Wittmier has spent 25 years in full-time ministry as an executive director of a large church and vice president of a large international teaching ministry. It is these experiences in teaching others that led her to write Crowns in an easy to read, digestible format--one that "doesn't preach at you, but rather inspires and motivates you to think of every choice in life as one that can bring eternal reward," she says.
