Mr. Daigneau did something with this book that I admire very much. He has set out the basis of his Christian faith so that his family can understand that faith. We are fortunate that he has shared his thinking with us both so that we may know God better and also to be inspired to do the same for our own families.

Studying the Gospel is at the heart of Protestant Christianity . . . but few of us spend much time in that practice. Of those who do, rarely does anyone look past the apparent meaning of the translated words to capture what the Greek words meant at the time those parts of the Bible were written. Mr. Daigneau is one of those rare individuals who has sought to capture those insights.

Mr. Daigneau had lived his life as a God-fearing Christian and had been active in his church. But he knew that he wasn't close enough to God, so he changed his life so that he could make that connection in the right way.

In the process, he has discovered that you must not only let God into your life through Jesus Christ so that the Holy Spirit will be with you at all time . . . but you must let the Holy Spirit guide you so that you seek to do His will.

Mr. Daigneau makes an especially telling distinction between our ability to know all of the thoughts of God and our ability to know what God wants us to do. I think that distinction alone is worth reading this book.

I hope that you will choose to read this brief book that is so well packed with meaningful Scripture and helpful analogies.

Even more so, I hope that you will find it in your heart to follow what God says to you as you read the book.

Further, I hope you will share your faith in a helpful way to your family. Until you do that, you have not fulfilled your responsibilities.

One Lord, One Truth, One Faith is quite an unusual little book. Maurie Daigneau originally wrote the book for his sons and daughters, and he retained that frame of reference for publication to a wider audience. This works for and against the book to some degree, but the main thing it does is to reinforce the very personal nature of the truths Daigneau is attempting to express and the strength of his layman's commitment to an intense study of the Bible. I would argue that you do need to be a believer and have a decent understanding of Christianity before tackling this book. The author goes into great detail in places, dissecting a number of Biblical passages in an intense effort to get at the roots of their original meanings. While he does offer some effectively simple analogies to get his points across, those without grounding in the matters at hand may well find themselves quite lost.
This book offers Christians an unusual means for challenging their faith. As a Christian myself, my own reaction to the book is a mixed one. I have no qualms about the suggestions the author lays out for leading a truly Christian life, and I in fact found several bits of insight in the body of his message. In my own case, however, I have to say that Daigneau goes against some important tenets of my own faith. Much of it comes down to the old faith vs. works argument, as Daigneau seems to say that faith alone is insufficient, that the salvation taught by the Christian church is not what it appears to be. The Holy Spirit enters your heart when you are saved, Daigneau says, but faith and belief alone won't get you into heaven. It is not enough to know God - you must live in Christ so that God will know you; otherwise, the "guarantee" of salvation is really only "hope.

Maurie Daigneau tells us at the beginning of "One Lord, One Truth, One Faith" that he wrote this short treatise on Christian faith for his children. When his eldest daughter went away to college, shortly followed by his other children, Daigneau felt that he should put down in words the spiritual tenets that served to guide him in his life, and that these words would hopefully continue to guide his children. Maurie Daigneau was a quarterback for Northwestern University when he attended a Christian Athletes conference. His experiences there led him to become a born again Christian. For the next sixteen years, he obediently followed the directives of his church while he raised a family and acquired the usual assortment of material goods all Americans feel they should never go without: a big house, cars, clothes, etcetera. Something happened one day, never elaborated upon in the book, which called into question everything he thought he knew about his relationship with God. His resulting quest to discover what the scriptures really mean led to a break with his church. It also led him to question the direction all Christian denominations seem to be taking in America.
After reading the book, I began to believe all the stuff I heard about Northwestern focusing on academics over athletics. Daigneau is a smart guy if the complexity of his reflections on the Old and New Testaments are any indication. Rather than jot down a laundry list of beefs against mainstream Christianity, the author digs deep into the Bible to write what is essentially a biblical commentary about man's relationship with the Lord. You won't find any pithy, feel good aphorisms here. Nor will you find strident assaults against other religions, something too often prevalent in many books written from a Christian perspective.
