The Lost Art of Repentance You don’t have to be a professional archer to know that an arrow is useless without a bow to propel it. Likewise, the power of God’s merciful love to penetrate the hardened heart of a sinner cannot be released without something to “trigger” that awesome release of grace. That “trigger” is repentance of sin on the part of the sinner. Somehow that simple truth has become obfuscated to an alarming degree by the hellish darkness that pervades our society today. This treatise is simply a modest attempt to restore that “Lost Art of Repentance.” There is an urgent need to rediscover the life-changing flood of joy and peace known only to a truly repentant soul enveloped in the Lord’s loving embrace of forgiveness.
