Is Sunday School Destroying our Kids?

People in the world often reject Christianity simply because they can't distinguish it from mere morality. The world needs morality--oppression thrives when consciences are abandoned--but we need more than that alone. We need the gospel of grace. A gospel that has largely been lost amid the dos and don'ts and preoccupations of religious culture. 

People often pit grace against moralism. And they should. Moralism circumvents heart-changed morality. We need moral men and women, but moralism damages the foundation of heart-change. 

It's okay to pit grace against moralism, but let's not pit grace against morality. Grace is the source of real morality, and grace--thank God!--breaks the bars of moralism that imprison us. 

Is Sunday School Destroying Our Kids? exposes moralism for its false pretensions--the sham that it is--and it moves our hearts to believe the gospel, for the first, or the hundred-and-first, time. 

This was an interesting book, full of very good points.   One thing to remember and the author even quotes it, this is not a book about Sunday school. 
It is more of an approach to grace, and how we need it; we need to show it and it needs to be given to us.  The world would function much better if grace abounded.  Unfortunately that is not the case in the secular society, much less the Christian society we live in today.
I do believe that this is the thought the author is trying to convey in this book.

I  received this book free from the publisher . I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
