The Seven Deadly Sins- John T. Mabray

Just finished The Seven Deadly Sins by my friend and fellow Lynchburg pastor, John T. Mabray. The book was the outgrowth of a sermon series delivered by Pastor Mabray at Rivermont EPC here in Lynchburg.

Mabray does an excellent job of exploring this classic set of sins. In doing so, he thoroughly covers the second table of the law. The writing is very good.

Pastor Mabray shows an infectious zeal for the grace of Christ. He preaches strongly against sins while exhorting the reader to the ever abundant grace of Christ both for forgiveness as well as the strength of the Holy Spirit for daily faithful living.

Each chapter has an extremely helpful list of confessions that really leaves no stone unturned and no excuses reserved for sinning against God in the areas of Pride, Envy, Anger, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony and Lust.

I think this is an excellent Biblical, Pastoral and Practical book.

You can find it here.

Well done.
