“Our conscience is always with us yet its unique purpose in the Christian life is not often explored. This book takes a practical look at the role of the conscience through the lens of Scripture and puts a spotlight on needed truth. It is a resource that gets the reader to dive in with both feet and experience the powerful encouragement and fundamental conviction that the conscience brings to the Christian life. Kevin convincingly helps readers to understand how our consciences are intrinsically connected to our spiritual decline or flourishing. As a biblical counselor I am grateful for this resource as it is sure to be helpful for anyone who reads it.”See All

“This is a wonderfully clear teaching about a joyfully clear conscience. Its instructive and even perhaps surprising to hear all the Bible has to say on this topic we too often neglect. These words spur us on to walk in open relationship with God, through his Spirit, conscience cleansed by the blood of Christ.”See All

The conscience seems somewhat mysterious. We’re often not really sure how to listen to it, if we can trust it or what role it should play in our lives.
Kevin DeYoung shows us it isn’t something to be puzzled over but rather that a conscience is something good, given by God. As you read this book, you'll discover freedom from the low-level guilt and shame we commonly experience. DeYoung explains that when we daily turn to Christ, we experience a clear conscience that comes with knowing that Jesus’ blood covers all our wrong.
