23 Dec

I received an ARC of Christianity Lite from Charisma Media. Here is a little peek. (Please note: I have not read this book and cannot make a recommendation one way or the other.)

Almost every food and beverage today also has a “lite” version—potato chips, whipped cream, maple syrup, soda, beer… You may even remember an ad campaign for a light beer a few years back, “Tastes great. Less filling.

Happiness, but without repentance. As a result, we have watered down, decaffeinated, and diluted the message of the gospel until it really has no effect on our lives or the lives of others.

In Christianity Lite Glen Berteau calls us back to the full gospel message: Jesus didn’t come to make our normal, selfish, sinful lives a little better. He came to radically transform life as we know it. This narrow way—the way of grace-inspired obedience—is the only way to find the real Jesus, real meaning, real hope, and a life where we’ll really live!
