Trapped in complicated Christianity? Here's permission to come out of confinement!
How did so many people wind up trapped by complicated systems of performance-based faith? Why do we push ourselves past our limits in pursuit of more works than any reasonable Pharisee would have demanded? Must we run at a pace somewhere between maddening and insane to prove we're among the faithful?
"No!" is the emphatic answer from best-selling author Chuck Swindoll. In Simple Faith, he shows us how to get free from such arbitrary confinement. He reminds Christians that they serve a God who promised freedom, peace, and rest. And it's everlasting?not exhausting?life, remember?
Here at last is an exhilarating invitation to simple faith. Move beyond rat-race Christianity and break the bars calculated to wilt free spirits.
A cage is no place for a Christian. Welcome to your wings!
Charles R. Swindoll has devoted his life to the clear, practical teaching and application of God's Word. He currently pastors Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, Texas, and serves as the chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary. His renowned Insight for Living radio program airs around the world.

M. Stuart4 Stars Out Of 5March 1, 2008M. Stuart"Simple Faith" was a very thought-provoking book which looks in detail at Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. I was familiar with the words "Sermon on the Mount" but never really knew where it began or where it ended. So it was an eye-opener for me. My edition of the book also has questions for reflection at the end of each chapter. The author looks at the Sermon on the Mount in themes/segments (as set out in the Bible)and studies each segment in each chapter. This book can be used as a guide/aide in personal Bible Study of Jesus' Sermon.For anyone who wants to study Jesus Sermon on the Mount and reflect on a deeper meaning of his words therein, I recommend this book.
