“How good is good enough?” “When will God finally be pleased with me?” “Maybe I shouldn’t sing along this Sunday morning after last night.” “When I finally get this or that right, I’ll be on track with God.”
Have you ever thought like this? Then read this book! God is not interested in you getting it all right. Can you be saved by being a good person? (No!) God desires us to come face to face with our need for Jesus Christ and to come to him through our brokenness.
Alan Kraft does a great job of addressing salvation theology at a real life level. He issues the call for us to drop the mask and embrace brokenness. I found this book to be personally refreshing and helpful in my walk with God. I read it with my accountability partner and it helped us keep our hearts open before the Lord.
Imagine a church where no one cared about how good they looked to everyone around them. Imagine a place where it was OK to admit failure and confess sin on a regular basis. Imagine a congregation that gathered before the cross and experienced Christ together there. Buy and read this book. That church begins with you.
