Must we run at a pace between maddening and insane to prove we're among the faithful? Is this really how the Prince of "Peace would have us live? In this best-selling, classic work, Swindoll answers with a resounding, "No!" showing how Christians can break free from exhausting, performance-based faith.He calls us back to the simplicity of the Sermon on the Mount.
The exhausting pace of many who run the Christian race these days leaves them feeling frenzied and frazzled. But is that really the life promised by the Prince of Peace? Is that what Jesus meant when He said, "I will give you rest"? Do you sometimes feel that you're trapped in some sort of Christianized rat race? Charles Swindoll understands. "Everything in life has gotten complicated, including a life of faith," he writes. "Somehow the complications of life in general have bled into our walk of faith and messed up everything." Simple Faith invites you to free yourself from the tedious demands of the "Christian" obstacle course and return to the life of hope, grace, and rest that Christ has always offered. Dispelling the myth that maturity means bowing to the never-ending requirements of rule-oriented religion, Swindoll calls you back to the simplicity of the Sermon on the Mount. Return to the only life worth living -- a life of simple faith. Book jacket.
