Item description for How Good Is Good Enough? (LifeChange Books) by Andy Stanley...
Overview Argues that goodness by itself is not sufficient to achieve entry into heaven, exploring questions about the fairness of Christianity and Jesus's teachings on attaining rewards after death while inviting readers to experience a grateful awareness of God's grace and mercy.
Publishers Description Surely there's more than one way to get to heaven? Bestselling author Andy Stanley addresses this popular belief held even among Christians. But believing that all good people go to heaven raises major problems, Stanley reveals. Is goodness not rewarded, then? Is Christianity not fair? Maybe not, he says. Readers will find out why Jesus taught that goodness is not even a requirement to enter heaven - and why Christianity is beyond fair. Andy Stanley leads believers and skeptics alike to a grateful awareness of God's enormous grace and mercy. Good People Go to Heaven...Don't They? "Sure they do. It only makes sense. " Actually, it doesn't really make any sense at all. Smart, educated, accomplished men and women everywhere are banking their eternities on a theory that doesn't hold water. Chances are, you've never really thought it through. But you owe it to yourself to do so. Find out now what's wrong with the most popular theory about heaven--and what it "really "takes to get there.

Reviews - What do customers think about How Good Is Good Enough??
Great little book Nov 2, 2008
We use this book as a free gift for anyone visiting our congregation for the first time. In exchange for sharing their contact information during services they are encouraged to take home a copy of the book. (It is astonishing how folks with share their contact information in exchange for a simple gift - we are experiencing about a 95% rate in securing accurate contact information this way.) Stanley clearly and simply sets out a concise argument leading to the biblical truth that no one has or ever will be 'good enough' to merit eternal life, it is a gift of God's grace given as we accept Christ as their personal saviour.
GREAT book, SHORT and SWEET! Oct 16, 2008
This is a fantastic book - it's small in size, can fit in a purse and maybe a pocket. It is clear and concise in its message, tackling a widely held belief that one only has to be good to go to heaven. Do not confuse "clear and concise" with dumbed down, however. There are some heavily philosophical parts, and this book is very intellectual. I recently gave away 10 of them to family members who probably never would have read a larger book. If they're not really interested, they're not going to invest a whole lot of time. This book is SHORT and SWEET, and I'm pleased to say several of my family have actually read it already! This is a great price, so I encourage anyone to order a set and always keep a copy nearby. You never know who might need one!
Back Door Approach to Gospel Sep 7, 2008
This is an outstanding, simple, short little booklet that gives a powerful, backdoor approach to the Gospel. It's perfect to give to someone searching for the truth about heaven, hell, eternity, answers, Jesus.... Shares that it is only in Christianity...true Christianity..not religion...that heaven is a free gift. Salvation is free. Pretty awesome.
great lesson Jul 18, 2008
My husband taught this lesson in our college and career sunday school class. It was a great lesson.
GOOD ENOUGH! Jul 12, 2008
I was very pleased and encouraged by this cd. It takes you down the path that all religions can't be right. Then it explains that most religions teach that being good and doing good deeds get you to the promise land. He explains how all these different religions have one common flaw, how good do you have to be? None of them can answer that question. However, there is one religion that teaches just the opposite. That one can be saved by grace, A free gift! The end of the cd explains exactly how to get this free gift. If you love Jesus or want to know about him, you will enjoy this cd. It's very simplistic, but tastefully done. I have listened to it 3 different times while driving and still love it. I did order extra copies and have given them to my friends, who say they loved the method of enlightenment.
