EXALTING CHRIST: ESSAYS IN HONOR OF FRED MALONE

05/03/2018

The Word of God ranks ingratitude or unthankfulness as a cardinal sin. Paul notes in Romans 1:18 that two foundational sins of fallen humanity were its failure to honor God or give thanks to Him. When the creature fails to give the Creator His due, reality is inverted and personal and cultural judgement cannot be far behind.

This book of 17 essays was written to thank God for the life and ministry of Dr. Fred Malone of First Baptist Church in Clinton, Louisiana. When the editors approached various folk to participate, they jumped at the change to thank God for His choice servant. The eager participants include the following:
