About the Book

In Rethinking Redemption, Pastor Steve Sanchez offers fresh new insight as he gives an understanding of the Bible in relation to Jesus’s coming and all that happened before. He enumerates the long and painful years of people’s separation and reconciliation with God until He sent His Son to reconnect the bond between God and Man. The book seeks to reveal what is true—both in the scriptures and in documented history.

Excerpts

How can we fully appreciate the redemption Jesus performed unless we understand from what we were redeemed? The extent and nature of the evil and darkness Jesus overcame is not sufficiently known in the Christian world. The reason that the story of Jesus is the “greatest story ever told” is that Jesus performed the greatest use that ever was and ever will be; and this story is real story.

The basic story, in short, is known by the Christian world: The Lord was born on Earth to set all things into order. He is the Hero of Heroes. If we think about it, it is a common sense realization that there must have been an enormously important need for God to be born on earth when He did. What is not so well known is that before He could incarnate there was a long, painstaking process of preparation that had to take place.

It is a pattern of cosmic history that all the churches begin in inspiration and then decline as evil accumulates. This results in a dire separation between God and Man and in a cosmic loss of equilibrium between heaven and hell.
