What is Christianity? It is Christ. Nothing more, nothing less. Christianity is not an ideology and not a philosophy. Christianity is the Good News that beauty, truth, and goodness are found in a Person. And conversion? It's more than a change in direction; it's a change in connection.

Give yourself plenty of time to digest this! I have it in all three formats: hardback, kindle and audio. It's that good. Best read with a partner or small group. We needed to discuss it slowly.
Born and raised as a Christian, visited several denominational services searching and not finding God. At the age of 56 on the journey God took me to a tiny town (where I lived with my 3rd husband ) a very dear friend invited me to attend Sunday service with her. I accepted and in the lobby of the Belen Church of Christ I stopped dead in my tracks as something came over me and it was most wonderful feeling. I now know it was The Holy Spirit and knew I had found a home. Rebaptized and brought my husband to God and he too was baptized.
We now 26 years later are living in Texas and are very good Christians and members of Broad street Church of Christ where we are very active. Frank Viola and Leonard Sweet are so wonderful with words and knowledge and have answered so many questions I have had since a child. He was also sent to me from God and of that I am convinced and happy with my life and am continuing to read his works and putting together a group to do his bible study about the Indwelling of Christ. I am at the age of 76 Charlie Rich's Happiest girl in the whole wide world. And I and my husband thank you, thank you LORD.
Viola and Sweet do an excellent job in presenting Jesus Christ as the one true Lord and Savior. Their focus on Christ is simply what all Christians are intended to have ans what God desires for us. I am certain you will enjoy the book and if you allow the Holy Spirit to open your eyes and meet the real Jesus Christ you will be awestruck.
