In June of 2005 DPI is releasing Ed Anton’s new book that gets at the heart of what repentance really is. He is convinced that many of us want to live repentant lives, but we don’t understand practically how to do so. Giving in-depth biblical and historical background on this all-important topic, he helps us know how.
Anton says, "Even if we don’t understand repentance fully, we do understand that it results in a changed life, a holy life, a Christ-like life. We even understand why this is so important. However, we do not understand how to repent. Thus, this book focuses on "how to’s" of repentance from the Bible: from the Prophets, from Jesus and from the Apostles. It will also help us learn how to repent with help from the Spirit, the Cross, the Church, and its leaders’ examples."
Repentance is all about the Greek word "metanoia": meta or "after," and noia or "mindset, worldview, paradigm or philosophy of life." Together, meta-noia means "an altered worldview, a re-oriented philosophy of life, a mental revolution, a cosmic paradigm shift."
After considering such a definition, one might ask, "Whatever happened to repentance in the church today?" Anton shows us that there are two big reasons whey the church tends to relegate repentance to the dusty corners of archaic dogma: (1) it doesn’t understand or, much worse, (2) it does understand, but the understanding doesn’t fit its "positioning." As a former marketer for Coca-Cola turned minister, he examines the startling similarities between consumer marketing strategies and churches’ evangelism methods.
Fresh insights on the true meaning of repentance will bring this book into your heart...and bring about a cosmic change.
