Reviews - What do customers think about Is Christianity Misunderstood??
A nice book that I enjoyed reading Apr 14, 1999
The book is 29 pp. long with five chapters: (1) Why is Christianity Important?, (2) Was Jesus' Crucifixion Necessary?, (3) How is Suffering Explained?, (4) Is Sin Too Strong a Word?, and (5) How Can We Become Close to God? I was looking for a short and simple book to help me in evangelizing. The book is nicely written, thoughtful, sincere, and unpretentious. He doesn't quote much scripture, which is okay because that can make the reading choppy. But he doesn't reference much scripture either, which is crippling in crucial spots. E.g., when he gives 4 steps to "bring Jesus into your life" on pp. 26 and 27, he gives no scriptural references. I personally doubt one of his 4 steps. I don't think his last step is scriptural, but I'm not going to go looking through my bible trying to disprove it. I'll just say I've been reading the Bible for years and haven't seen his last step in the scriptures. I think we owe his last step to Martin Luther, or someone similar. But denominationalism is what has splintered and damaged Christianity. I'm digressing. I do recommend the book, but you know it's not perfect. I did enjoy it.
