It’s been nearly a year since I started my blog series on the fundamentals of Christianity. Those of you who follow me closely may remember that as that series drew to a close I decided to use those blogs as the basis for a book. I’m happy to announce today that the book is on the market.
Christianity 101: The Simplified Christian Life cuts through the clutter some would strew in the way between you, the individual Christian, and Jesus—or that some would throw in front of a non-Christian who is honestly seeking a relationship with the King. It is my fervent hope book will both bring those seeking salvation into a saving relationship with Him and bring those who are already Christians but are mired in the muck into proper relationships with our blessed Savior.
One of the things I’ve always found strange about Christians in general is that we so often speak grace to get people saved and then immediately began to point them back under the law. We tell them that Jesus paid the price for our salvation and that His grace is sufficient. Then, as soon as they accept Him as their Savior, we begin telling them they can’t do this and they have to do that if they want to be Christians.
How do we expect a new Christian to find his way through the confusion of such paradoxical teaching? How do we expect a lost person to come to Jesus for salvation when we speak out of both sides of our mouths?
This book gives new believer and salvation seeker alike a basic knowledge of the Word. It begins by exploring some of the covenants God made with His people Israel and then moves into the New Covenant. It teaches grace—that we need Jesus plus nothing.
Whether you are still seeking the salvation Jesus offers—or a new Christian trying to learn what grace means without all the garbage thrown in the way—or a more seasoned Christian seeking to understand grace better so you can explain it to others, this book has something for you. To order a Kindle version from Amazon, click here. To order a copy for Nook or Kindle from Smashwords, click here. Either way, it’s only $3.99.
It’s also available in paperback, but CreateSpace’s website seems to be a little slow in getting it posted. I’ll mention the link in Friday’s blog.
If you abide in Me and My word abides in you, then you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
