Most people are Christians by default. Bethke highlights the difference between teeth gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope. He begins with the unvarnished tale of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based, fake-smile existence that sapped his strength and led him down a path of destructive behavior. Crying out for a life greater than the one for which he had settled, Bethke discovered the real Jesus, who beckoned him beyond the props of false religion.

Want to know the difference between the stereotypical religious feel and the inner workings of the truths behind Christianity and what it means to be a Christian? Read this book. So many great topics, issues and concerns were talked about, and were further explained. It showed me many things that I believe will help improve my faith.
Even if you're not a Christian or religious, I would recommend this book to you since it breaks down the ideas of the poor images behind faith and shows what should really be important/ revealed in Christianity.
