Gospel Wakefulness

I just read the beginning of a book that rocked me, pun intended as the quote below will make clear.  There is a huge difference between knowing the gospel and KNOWING the Gospel.  Just these few paragraphs make a lasting impression on me that gives me much to ponder about my own experimental knowledge of the gospel, and perhaps for you as well.
