"So why go on about this (the necessity of the new birth)? What's the importance of it? What's the big deal? I am arguing this way as a pastor, as a shepherd of souls, as a preacher. I want my people to get their doctrine right, of course, just as I want them to get their worship right, and so on. But fundamentally, I want them to go to Heaven with me. This is the goal of all ministry." - Wilson, AC, p176.
And this is why I have, as a pastor, found this such a very important book.
