Blessed Assurance? A Demonstration that Christian Fundamentalism is Simply False. Expanded - Limited Edition. Paperback – August 25, 2007
Top Customer Reviews
As for content, I was put off by his harangue on small points. What a reasonable person might consider casuistry is hammered home repeatedly and vehemently. I am a confirmed atheist, with no tendency to theism of any sort, but this thing is not as convincing as it might have been. I recommend that potential readers try Jim Gardiner's book, Jesus Who, as a comparison. Or maybe Hitchens...
Then this book is for you.
Blessed Assurance? welcomes the reader to discover the secrets about the christian religion and why fundamentalism is simply false. The book is easy to read and approach the reader in a friendly and respectful manner. All it asks you is to read the book with an open mind. Then begins a journey where you are guided through the deepest secrets of the bible and the christian doctrine. Unlike other books that promises the same thing, Michael manages to put Christianity against Christianity and the bible against the bible. You do not need to trust external sources you never heard of before, Michael simply show you the things within the bible that you can read for yourself and then add 1+1 together. He also reveals the truth about "faith" and what it means to truly believe.
Blessed Assurance? speaks from the heart. As someone who was once a christian, Michael Tenenbaum knows what it's like. He knows what things go through the mind of a believer. When he tells the reader about his own story I could connect with his experiences very well. After reading this book you might be able to enjoy the bible with new clarity and you might also have discovered a few nice things about yourself. And you might have easened a huge burden from your shoulders and grow as a person.
