Product Description

After years of living with a set of religious demands that he could never live up to, Fil Anderson found himself spiritually bankrupt and emotionally drained. Following a crash-and-burn in professional ministry, he experienced relief in learning to be with God rather than doing for God. Instead of desperation, he found healing, and a rich new life with God.

In Breaking the Rules, Fil invites us to explore what happens when good religion turns bad. At such times we are weighed down with expectations of what it takes to be "right with God"--whether it is the expectations of others, holding up under pressure, fixing what's wrong or accomplishing big things for God.

When we set aside this false agenda, we find the courage to confess our fears and insecurities. We taste the depths of God's love for us. Here is an opportunity to quit trusting in your own ability to live for God, and simply trust in God instead.

    From what I have read of this book, it seems to deal with "legalism." I have not been legalistic for a number of years so from what I have read, is review for me. I can not say this is a fair evaluation of this book because I haven't even completed a full chapter yet. The author seems to be very well aquainted with the old legalistic religions and how to break the bond. The book may go even deeper into a closer relationship with the Lord, I just haven't gotten that far!

    The churches I grew up, and and even served with, were very much concerned about appearance. This book certainly challenges an appearance based religion. I hope I can put that kind of religion in the past and work on the heart issues, those things that matter for eternity, with Fil Anderson as a guide.
