Another reason for a book on the new birth is to help followers of Christ to know what really happened to us when we were converted. It is far more glorious than many think it is. It is also more glorious than I think it is. It is wonderful beyond all human comprehension. But that mystery is not because there is little about it in the Bible. There is much about it in the Bible. It’s because when all is understood as well as we can understand it in this age when we see “in a mirror dimly” (1 Cor. 13:12), there is still more. So I hope that when we are done ,we will know more fully and know more accurately what happened to us when we were born again.
