Legalism and Religion vs. Liberty and Relationship
by: Regner Capener
This book is remarkable for three reasons:
- It is written by a local pastor and member of the Sunnyside Ministerial Association
- The vision of Old Testament history is fascinating
- In the book, the author presents a vision of prophecy
In the recent past, this blog has often included reviews of books read by the editor. This is no different. What makes this post unique is, your humble editor is personally acquainted with the author. Readers can be assured that there is no financial conflict of interest, as this blog purchased the book at full retail (currently under $5 at the Kindle Store on Amazon.)
The book does an absolutely amazing job of describing Old Testament events, especially as it relates to Queen Esther of the Persian Empire. In fact, the author claims to have experienced visions from God into this period of history, and the book is a recounting of what he saw.
Capener says the visions he experienced included events in the past, and also in the future. He adds that we as people are part of God’s unfolding plan, and we are given the choice of participating in it, or not.
Prophetic visions lead the author to believe that people have no idea how soon the return of the Lord is.
In an interview with this blog, Capener says:
Who wants to settle for second best when you have so much available?
Although Capener has self-published some books in the past, this is his first book picked up by a publisher (Destiny Image). This is also the first book Destiny Image has published as an eBook first, with a paperback version set for publication later this year. It is also available on the Nook from Barnes and Noble, and Kobo eReaders.
This book earns five out of five stars.
