Book review: Peter Dickson – RICH

When aiming to make great spiritual truths plain, Jesus taught in parables to make his point. Peter Dickson has done much the same thing in a contemporary fashion in his book “Rich”. Using the language and setting of the credit crunch, the book opens with the subject of human debt to God and then leads convincingly to the cross.

Dale Ralph Davis writes “Not a safe book. Peter Dickson is a bit sneaky (the book is encouragingly written) and yet terribly stubborn (he refuses to offer you a bland, smooth, mass-market, shrink-wrapped Jesus). So reading it may make you savingly angry or fearfully grateful – with of which will be okay. I find it so refreshing this combination of contemporary clarity and old, rugged gospel.”

Peter and his wife Eleanor were on placement at Gilcomston South Church of Scotland when I came to know the Lord in 1993.  They were two of the most influential people for me in my first few months as a new believer.
