Although this book is not meant strictly for new believers, it is a good source for for those who are at the, "I'm now a Christian. What next?" phase. It is an excellent overview and explanation on such topics as assurance of salvation, Jesus as the scapegoat for our sins, and other things that may confuse those who were not raised in the church environment. I wish I had had a better understanding of many of these things when I first became a Christian. So, while I did not think the book truly covered the "liberating power of the cross", I would not hesitate to recommend it to others who want a deeper understanding of a daily walk with Christ. The Study Guide included is also a great benefit whether studying alone or with others.
