Abilene, Texas (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Given the many denominations of modern Christianity, many people who might otherwise come to the faith are put off by the seeming complexity. How is one to know which of the churches in the right one? How can one know the correct way to find Jesus? In her new book “Welcome to Christianity: Born Again 101” (published by WestBow Press), author Kristina Redenius offers readers a guide to answering those questions.
“I wanted to explain salvation and Christianity in its most basic form,” Redenius writes, “in hopes of clearing up some of the misconceptions out there, as well as lay it out for new believers, just as I needed it laid out for me.”
An excerpt from the book:
“All of our sins, past, present, and future are covered by the blood at the cross. That’s another Christian way of saying all of your sins are forgiven because of Jesus dying, shedding his blood at the cross. If you are thinking, “So does that mean I can do whatever I want because I know I’m forgiven anyway? It’s like an etch-a-sketch right? I go rob a bank and…shake, shake…now it’s gone! Jesus took care of it so no harm, no foul. I’m good, right?” Slow down there, Bonnie and Clyde, not quite.”
“Welcome to Christianity” spells out Christianity for the everyday reader. Redenius’ intent in writing it was to make the subject relatable and understandable by everyone, not just those few with a theology degree.
“Too many people are lost and either don’t know it,” Redenius says, “or don’t know how to get out. This is the way: Jesus. I’m tired of the whole concept of Christianity getting muddy with stereotypes. Let’s just keep it simple.”
