Great book with great insight of what being a real Christian/Christ follower is all about. It shows the difference between being a Christ follower versus just a "Christian." Thanks, Chuck. Our group loved the book and video.
Books arrived promptly and in excellent condition, and because we ordered a dozen books, shipping was free. We were VERY pleased! Christianbook.com is definitely where we will go to place future orders.
Very well done. Mr. Colson provides a very good and biblical presentation of Christianity without any denominational prejudice. Also, he includes a lot of historical and cultural influeneces that have shaped the true Church - the body of Christ. In particular, he shows that the early church was very much on the same page in every aspect of important doctrine because the Bible was the source of that doctrine. The modern drift away from sound doctrine in the domoninations of the modern Christian churches is because they have drifted away from the one and only true source of truth - the Word of God. Very well written and a very timely expose of the roots of Christianity and how the modern church has left it's first love.
I just couldn't put this book down.I bought it for an unbelieving friend, but had to read it first to see how in depth Mr Colson goes.This book goes right to the roots of faith, but explains our belief in a way that you don't need a dictionary beside you to understand it. There are Bible references in it though, so I do recommend keeping the Bible translation of your choice close while you read.
