There is a difference between real faith in God and mere religion. There is a kind of religion that is lifeless and is the bitter enemy of true faith. Think of Dietrich BonhoefferÆs prophetic attempts to waken the sleeping German church, often unwitting allies of Hitler and the Third Reich. Or of William WilberforceÆs heroic efforts to rouse his complacent ôChristianö countrymen to stand against the monstrous evil of the slave trade. Bonhoeffer and Wilberforce stood against the evil of their timesùan evil often repackaged in religious-sounding language.
Eric MetaxasÆs electrifying messageùdelivered before the president and dozens of national leaders at the Sixtieth Annual National Prayer Breakfastùcalls readers to follow in the steps of Wilberforce and Bonhoeffer, men who lived their faith and swam against the mainstream, instead of drifting along with it. Metaxas makes it clear that phony religiosity offends God himselfùand that real prayer is only possible with a living faith in a living God. And that kind of faith can transform the world. No pressure.
Eric Metaxas is the author of the New York Times bestseller Amazing Grace, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (But Were Afraid to Ask), Everything Else You Always Wanted to Know About God, and thirty childrens books. He is founder and host of Socrates in the City in New York City, where he lives with his wife and daughter. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Atlantic, Washington Post, Books & Culture, Christianity Today, Marks Hill Review, and Fist Things. He has written for VeggieTales and Rabbit Ears Productions, earning three Grammy nominations for Best Childrens Recording.
