Dr. Maxwell is the reason I am a Christian. I left the SDA church when I was in my early 20s because the forensic view made no sense to me. If I believed in God, I could neither respect nor love Him. I accepted my fate: Lost.
Ten years later an acquaintance asked me one afternoon, "Have you ever thought about why Jesus had to die?" (had I ever!) and shared Dr. Maxwell's picture of God with me. Tears come to my eyes as I write this, remembering the tremendous relief, then joy and gratitude I felt as I began to understand. I have been growing in grace and sharing the larger view ever since.
Yes, I am a star in Graham Maxwell's crown and I am so thankful for his faithfulness.
