Abilene, TX (PRWEB) October 4, 2006
Bill Riggs of Free and Forgiven Ministries, in conjunction with Lulu (http://www.lulu.com), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books, has released, “Taking On The Church” a compilation of personal experience, sermon transcripts, and articles addressing complacency, apathy, and arrogant attitudes in American Churches today.
This book is an effort to call Christians to accountability for the unapologetic apathy rampant in American organized religion. The author has spent more than six years observing, studying, and debating apathetic "Christians" across the nation. While this book may serve as an indictment on some, it is meant as a reminder that we serve a God of justice and consequences as well as grace, mercy, and compassion.
The Scriptures say that "faith without works is dead." It is the author's sincere hope that this book will serve as a wake up call for Christians everywhere to walk the walk as well as we talk the talk. Scripture is full of example after example of churches, cities, and even nations where the natural consequences of these attitudes and behaviors were devastating. American churches are on a crash course with destiny.
Taking On The Church is available for purchase at http://www.lulu.com and available through online booksellers worldwide.
