“‘Gods of Our Religion’ will provoke thought to those inside the church as well as outside about what and why we believe or don’t believe.”
Franklin, NC (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Lawrence Crawford offers an unprecedented examination of the gods and beliefs created within Christian-based churches in his provocative new book, “Gods of Our Religion: Christianity in America: An Inside Conversation” (published by WestBow Press).
“Many churches have been so Americanized, their successes are determined by numbers: attendance, building and cash,” Crawford writes. “The authentic purpose of the church needs to be recovered.”
Crawford reaches out to what he calls “the over-churched, under-churched, believer, non-believer and the sick-of-church” in the pages of “Gods of Our Religion.” He posits that an individual pursuit of faith is the most effective, authentic approach and encourages readers to embark on their own personal journeys of self-discovery.
“So many things get between us and an authentic spiritual connection, but there is a simple starting place where a connection can be pursued and found,” Crawford asserts. “‘Gods of Our Religion’ will provoke thought to those inside the church as well as outside about what and why we believe or don’t believe.”
