Christless Christianity – Michael Horton
One of the most challenging books I have ever read. In this book Dr. Horton takes the reader through a survey of modern day Christianity and shows how it has become so much more about self and sustainability of churches than about the truth of Christ. He posits that we are not far from a church completely void of Christ. He is not leveling this claim at the mainline or more liberal denominations either. He is making the statement that this is the case in the evangelical centers of our faith. Sadly I think he is right on target. This book is a wake-up call to get back to what really matters. I urge everyone to read it, but realize it contains hard truths and God might just be in the process of pruning us.
