Or from the place of ascendancy provided through Christ's ascension? Are we seated with Christ in heavenly places?Or still lacking boldness to enter God's throne of Gracethrough the completed work of Christ in His death resurrection andAscension?A book to inspirit new perspectives in living out the Bethany experience as well as invitation to make our churches Bethany communities that welcome and promote Christ in relation and realityHighly recommended for those who are pursuing than religious form and function those who desire to live an ascendant life or those who are curious David C Cook provided an ebook copy to read and review without obligation Thank you for the opportunity
