One of the most reassuring truths for a Christian is that in God’s world, God is
sovereign. He is in active control of the world he made. Nowhere do we see this more clearly than in God’s plan of salvation. Were it not for God’s intervention in our
lives, we would be lost both now and for all eternity. These moments of God’s gracious intervention are often marked in Scripture by the two words ‘but God’.
Here in this second volume, Tony Bennett takes a further thirty-one Scripture texts that contain the phrase ‘but God’—or, more often in the New Testament, ‘but Jesus’—and demonstrates, as Martyn Lloyd-Jones once put it, how ‘these two words, in and of themselves, in a sense contain the whole gospel’
