Overview

Author and professional speaker David Rich knows how to stimulate readers and get them to ask questions-such as "You mean that isn't in the Bible?" In this book, David turns his attention to ten popular notions commonly believed by Christians...but found nowhere in Scripture.
Such beliefs, he indicates, are based in human-centered "religion" that waters God's Word down into pop culture. However, in every case, the Bible's true originals are vastly more liberating than sentiments like...
God helps those who help themselves
Believers are God's co-pilots
Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven
David's enthusiastic, energetic, easy-to-read style-which reflects his many years as a speaker-pulls his audience 100-percent into his arguments. Though readers may not agree with him right away, they will be challenged...and they will be motivated to check their Bibles and see why the unadulterated version of God's truth is always the best news.
