Product Description

From any non-Christian point of view, the gospel does not make sense. Grace doesn\'t make sense.  Grace doesn\'t add up. Why would Jesus come to be one of us, to pay a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay? Why would He do that? Free? No strings? What was in it for Him? Since the church first began, Christians have had trouble accepting God\'s grace. We have substituted holiness, discipleship, order, regulation, and a long list of things to avoid in place of God\'s free gift. The result is a \"Bad News Religion\" that drains the joy and life out of believers.

Bad News Religion is a convicting, liberating exploration of how we, in the name of religion, have shifted the focus from the work of God to our ability to become
worthy of salvation. The result is bondage and defeat. The key to success in the Christian life is not what we do, but who we know. Knowing God and knowing the fullness of His grace is a liberating experience. Most of us don\'t realize how we have robbed ourselves of experiencing the richness of God\'s grace.
