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 everlastingâ·not exhaustingâ·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 accurate, practical teaching and application of Gods Word and His grace. A pastor at heart, Chuck has served as senior pastor to congregations in Texas, Massachusetts, and California. Since 1998, he has served as the founder and senior pastor-teacher of Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, Texas.
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.
