Trying harder doesn’t work.
A fresh call to abandon religion and rediscover the gospel.
A lot of people seem angry with the Church. But what is really beneath the anger is exhaustion. They’re tired. Tired of trying and then trying harder., They yearn for the “burden is light” they read about in Scripture.
Author and pastor Alan Kraft offers a simple solution: Return to the gospel. Alan believes that we often view the gospel as only the starting point of faith, but not part of our daily walk. Inside, he calls thirsty believers back to the power of Christ’s timeless message. Readers will learn how to live the gospel in every moment, discover the power of a broken spirit, and experience the joy found when they just stop trying.
Alan Kraft is the pastor of Christ Community Church in Greeley, Colorado. He graduated with honours from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Alan and his wife, Raylene, have four children.
