Product Description

As frazzled 21st-century believers, are we so busy worrying about what we're doing for God that we've forgotten how to spend time with him? Reminding us of Christ's invitation to an "easy yoke" and a "light burden," Farley urges us to abandon the expectations of works-based religion and relax in the reality of the resurrection life. 176 pages, softcover from Baker.

Publisher's Description

Jesus called his followers to exchange the heavy yoke around their necks for his light one. So why are so many Christians feeling weighed down and burned out? The simple answer is that they are being told from many pulpits across the country what they "should be" doing for God.

Bestselling author Andrew Farley calls this for what it is--works-based religion--and then shares with readers biblical wisdom on the neglected art of resting in Christ. Anyone longing to experience true release from the crushing expectations that the world throws their way will find life and rest in Farley's revolutionary message.

    We are using this book for Bible study and seeing the captives set free. When you understand the FINIISHED WORKS of Christ this book is Biblically sound. The covenants also need to be split for this book to be understood. This is my favorite work by Andrew Farley and I highly recommend it!!

    Context Is Everything

    No question about it, Andrew challenges many of our traditional paradigms and certainly addresses legalism in Christianity. It's my opinion that many (most?) Christians don't really own their faith... in other words, they have never searched out Biblical truth for themselves, only agreed with someone else who told them what to think. Andrew challenges serious Bible students to get into the scripture and engage the foundational truths IN CONTEXT. He asks whether scripture passages are addressed to believers or unbelievers, Jews or Gentiles, New Covenant or Old Covenant people. When CONTEXT is established, many apparent scriptural conflicts evaporate and the puzzle pieces start falling into place. He clearly shows the value and effect of the law, who it applies to, and what it's result should be in light of Jesus' sacrifice which consummated the New Covenant. I've see many Christians find freedom and new vision through Andrew's writings.

    Old heresy revisited

    I am appalled that this book is getting endorsements from the Christian community. The author doesn't believe we need to ask God forgiveness for our sins, he believes much of what Jesus said is irrelevant to believers, and he insists the Ten Commandments are not for Christians. Remember the Lord's Prayer? Not for you. Remember Ananias and Sapphira? Wasn't God. Probably a heart attack. Take up your cross and follow me? Jesus did it, you don't have to. At times as I was so astonished I laughed out loud; but in truth it is no laughing matter!

    It is no wonder the book is a call to relax. There is no standard. This is antinomianism going by a new name. Its an old heresy that was - in previous generations - rejected by all (!) the 'heroes of the faith' from every denomination. This is not an attack on one denomination. It is an attack on Christianity itself.

    This book caused me to rethink some notions that I have held for years. I still have some questions, but that is good. Worth the reading.
