We have met the Pharisees, and they are...us. That's because we are all slaves to self-righteousness and judgmentalism. It's built into human nature. We set "the standard"--the list of do's and don'ts--to which others must adhere. Then we associate this predetermined behavior with righteousness and declare, "A 'Christian' wouldn't do that."
In this book, John Fischer points out that Jesus defined the truth in such a way as to leave no one righteous--not one. We cannot be made right before God by being "better" than anyone else. Instead, by recognizing and laying aside the Pharisee in all of us, we can embrace the grace, gratitude, and joy of the spirit-filled life.
John's books present a thought-provoking challenge to the Christian Church today, encouraging believers to pull the true essence of their faith from the trappings of the contemporary Christian subculture. John's debut into fiction, Saint Ben, received a Silver Angel award for fiction.
His other fiction books include Saint Ben, Saint's and Angel's Song, and Ashes on the Wind. Since l980, he has contributed a column to Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) magazine.
A graduate of Wheaton College, John and his family now live in California.
Betty Gregurek5 Stars Out Of 5August 13, 2009Betty GregurekAn awesome book that helps Christians to see ourselves as we really are. Helps put our attitudes into proper perspective. A copy of the book is being circulated in my SS class now.
Joan Simons5 Stars Out Of 5April 2, 2009Joan SimonsThis is an excellent book for a group study. We are using it in our adult sunday school class. The book is opening up an honesty which is both threatening for some and liberating for others. We ordered 20 and will need more. It is "feeding the hungry."
Annamaria5 Stars Out Of 5November 6, 2008AnnamariaThe title alone made me want to pick this book up! John Fischer has a way of wrapping a nugget of truth in humor and grace, and more than once made me laugh or cry. I have come face-to-face with my self-righteousness and judgment of others, and have also been reminded of the amazing grace and mercy God extends to me even now. This book came at just the right time in my life! What a great read!
