Ingratitude is one of the great sins of our time and one the Scripture singles out as a serious step down a slippery slope (Romans 1:18-19). When the creature does not give thanks and honor the Creator, reality is turned upside down and personal and cultural destruction are not far behind (Romans 1:18-32). Coupled with sinful ingratitude is a failure to give honor to whom honor is due. We honor God first and foremost and then the gifts He gives to men, especially to His Church.

This book seeks to honor God and His gift to the Church, Fred Malone—Christian, husband, father, pastor, citizen, theologian, and man of God. May the essays within encourage you to exalt our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
