Holy Fire Publishing (http://www.christianpublish.com ) releases:
Christian, A Dangerous Title to Claim (Paperback, US$12.00, ISBN# 978-1-60383-257-1). Jeremy B. Strang challenges believers to reevaluate their Christian commitment.
“It is what you are not being told: it is what most people do not know; it is what the majority of pastors are afraid to preach . . . [and] it is time to stop playing [at] Christianity and to find out the truth about yourself.”—Jeremy B. Strang
Christian, a Dangerous Title to Claim boldly challenges readers to examine the depth of their commitment to Christ. Whether used in discussion groups or for personal introspection, Strang’s probing questions will help readers understand that claiming the Christian faith is a dangerous claim, because it not only requires submission to Christ, but also “promises persecution, and [demands] a lifestyle backing the verbal claim of faith.”
Strang’s book, Christian, a Dangerous Title to Claim, calls professing Christians to action: “[Who] dares to stand up for the truth? Now, I am not talking about standing against abortion, although we should. I am not talking about standing against the godless immorality of our culture, although we should. Nor am I talking about standing against the mistreatment of Scriptures by crooked politicians, although we should. I am talking about standing firmly against our own corruption and selfish desires, against the sin which is engrained within us. I am talking about standing up in our homes as leaders of our families and of leaders within our churches. Though many talk of spiritual reformation, who will become indigenous missionaries to the blind Christian culture and lost churches in America?”
Jeremy Strang believes “men void of the Holy Spirit will show themselves to be hypocrites. Without the power of the Holy Spirit bringing new birth, true biblical manhood cannot be found, and brings catastrophic results. The eyes of such men are blind to the truth […] when a man’s lifestyle contradicts his profession of faith, he lives a lie. Taking the name of Jesus Christ is no game. […] A lack of commitment to God’s Will blinds others to the truth, robs us of true salvation, and damns our children to hell.”
“My friend Jeremy Strang has experienced the traumatic consequences of living life with only partial knowledge of and adherence to the truth. Throughout the world millions of people are perishing! [They] experience emptiness, frustration, hopelessness, and in some cases, false hope because their faith is affixed to only half of the truth. Many have never heard, understood and believed in the whole gospel; we have listened to, received, and bought into only half of the truth. If this has happened to you, then you understand the harsh reality awaiting those who die in ignorance. In this book, Jeremy faithfully presents the full truth of the gospel and the Word of God. It is only by hearing and believing in the whole truth that we are saved. Ask yourself, “Have I heard and believed in the whole truth, or just a part of it?” Peace, joy, comfort and hope await those who hear, receive and seek to live out the full truth of the gospel. So read on and ask the Spirit to speak to your heart.”—Steve Shullanberger, pastor
