Product Description

Many of us want to believe that our family and friends who have not confessed Christ will be accepted into heaven because they are basically "good people." In How Good is Good Enough Andy Stanley shatters this false belief by reminding us that heaven is not filled with good people, but with people who have received God's grace. This powerful teaching on grace will bring you closer to God and will help you introduce family and friends to the heart of the Christian faith.

Publisher's Description

Surely there's more than one way to get to heaven? Bestselling author Andy Stanley addresses this popular belief held even among Christians. But believing that all good people go to heaven raises major problems, Stanley reveals. Is goodness not rewarded, then? Is Christianity not fair? Maybe not, he says. Readers will find out why Jesus taught that goodness is not even a requirement to enter heaven - and why Christianity is beyond fair. Andy Stanley leads believers and skeptics alike to a grateful awareness of God's enormous grace and mercy.

Good People Go to Heaven...Don’t They?

Sure they do. It only makes sense.

Actually, it doesn’t really make any sense at all. Smart, educated, accomplished men and women everywhere are banking their eternities on a theory that doesn’t hold water. Chances are, you’ve never really thought it through. But you owe it to yourself to do so.

Find out now what’s wrong with the most popular theory about heaven—and what it really takes to get there.

    This is a short, quick read from Andy Stanley. This book can be helpful as part of evangelism or outreach to others. It has enough 'milk' to help new believers. However, I do not think it is a book for many mature believers as there is not much 'meat' in it. I was surprised by the cost listed for this little book. I thought it would be closer to $5 or less.

    Good conversational tone by the author and he makes his points without bludgeoning you.

    I received this book through the Blogging for Books program from Waterbrook Multnomah.

    Since Nobody's Perfect...How Good Is Good Enough?, written by Andy Stanley, is a minute book that tackles a massive theological mistake made by throngs of people.

    Many people within today's society believe they will be spending eternity within the presence of Jesus simply because they are "good people." The presence of this idea, the existence of this false theology, has become a prominent excuse for those who have embraced the idea that a loving, caring God would not send good people to Hell.

    Within this book, Stanley points out numerous hurdles that one must go through in order to make an attempt to maintain this world-centered view. He also points out serval insurmountable problems that all lead to the conclusion that this way of thinking is incorrect in all facets of thought.

    Stanley further points out that it just makes much more sense to trust in the claims of Christ than to allow our eternal placement be held hostage by a theology that is completely flawed.

    The tiny little book tackles a HUGE problem, and anyone willing to take the time to read it will be blessed immensely. Thus it is a recommended read.

    Good people do not go to heaven. Andy Stanley confronts the very popular view that the requirement to enter heaven is to have lived a ‘good' life. Stanley argues that, when looked into in depth, this idea doesn't even make sense. Although ‘good' would hopefully be a description of the people who will enter heaven, it is not the requirement for getting in. In the first half of the book, Stanley explains some of the popular views held about what is required for entry into heaven. In the second half, Stanley lays out a solid Biblical view of what it takes to get into heaven, faith in Jesus Christ. To say that we can get in by being ‘good' is to say that Jesus' work on the cross may have been unnecessary because we can meet the requirement ourselves. This is contradictory to the message proclaimed by Jesus and the rest of the Bible.

    This book is very well written. Andy Stanley is both an extraordinary scholar and communicator. The book is written in a way that engages the reader and explains Biblical truths very clearly and thoroughly. Although the book is a short, easy read it is well worth the time.

    I will definitely recommend this book to anyone searching for a Biblical account of what is required to enter heaven. This book would also be helpful for those leading others in a ministry setting as Stanley deals with real perspectives that many people hold. Stanley explains the Biblical view in a way that is more logical and compelling than its contrary popular opinions. Great book

    Well written, but makes glaring assumptions.

    Andy Stanley has excellent writing and persuasian skills, and asks many questions a typical unbeliever might ask. However, he provided very few answers for those who have studied this message before: 1. Why did God provide clear and miraculous evidence to the early church, yet is afraid of turning people into robots with the same proof for today?

    2. If we don't have the capacity or permission to reason whether something is good or evil, then by what standards to we say that God is good?

    3. What is belief? Can you force yourself to believe anything? Stanley gives us some challenging reasons the early church believed, a hypothesis commonly espoused by Josh McDowell and Ray Comfort. These are known as: "(a) liar, (b) crazy, (c) never claimed, or (d) he was who he claimed". The one that was omitted and that an unbeliever would like considered is (e) just mistaken. It would not be unreasonable to think that many have given their lives on a false premise.

    Overall, I would recommend the book to some people, but probably not to those who have thought of these issues deeply.
