Book Review- LifeStyles of the Remnant

I recently traveled to PA to sing/speak at a women's retreat weekend in Gettysburg. The topic of my seminars was 'How to Overcome Approval Addiction'. Awesome time! While in the area, I visited my Father-in-law who is a Pastor with healthy perspectives. He handed me one of the most amazing books I've read this decade. It's a masterpiece of balanced wisdom! When I saw that Keavin had been involved in the 'Black Hills School of Evangelism', I was a bit nervous- as some very stringent, dogmatic people we know were also there and I wasn't sure what brand of theology is emerging from that school.

However, I tend to give every viewpoint consideration. So began my hours long journey through the book. WOW- couldn't put it down until I had finished! Fabulous thoughts, solid evidence and a fluid writing style. Though I tend to shy away from "remnant talk"- as I feel this often leads to snobbery and exclusivism within our churches, Keavin is truly at the forefront of forward thinking and a grace-based theology. He valiantly upholds both the Bible and the writings of EGW, while exposing the grace and freedom, so abundant in BOTH. Whether you hold Ellen White to be a prophet or simply a growing Christian lady who had a special relationship with God, I believe you would be refreshed by reading this book! :o)
