I could not put this book down. Without previous knowledge of the author, I assumed the book would be a pendulum swing rant against the things we do not like about Westernized Church life.

What I found instead, was an excellent treatment of key passages of scripture dealing with the Ten Commandments, the New Covenant, Tithing, Baptism, Pre-destination and so on.

Andrew Farley is a masterful storyteller who makes theology personal and memorable.

If you know someone who has been burned-out by church life and legalism, buy this one for Christmas. But do yourself a favor and read it first.

I've noticed some interest in this title. My first reaction was that it might be similar to Bruxy Cavey's End of Religion, but your review suggests that while Bruxy always leans toward an historical approach, perhaps this one goes more doctrinal.

Yes, I would concur that this is a good doctrine primer. I haven't read Bruxy's, but I'm sure it's a good one. Good to hear from you Paul.
