Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The church in America has been willingly taken captive. The captors are American culture and ideals: consumerism, pragmatism, self-sufficiency, individualism, positive thinking, personal prosperity, and nationalism. These are antithetical to the gospel, but we have nevertheless made them part and parcel with it. We are well on our way to a Christless Christianity.

The result? A faith that is, in Michael Horton's prophetic words, "trivial, sentimental, affirming, and irrelevant." This alternative "gospel" is a message of moralism, personal comfort, self-help, self-improvement, and individualistic religion. It trivializes God, making him a means to our selfish ends.

In this critically acclaimed book, Horton skillfully diagnoses the problem and points to the solution: a return to the unadulterated gospel of salvation. Here is a must-read for anyone concerned about the state and future of Christianity and the church in America.


"A more important and timely volume could not have been written."--Thabiti M. Anyabwile, senior pastor, First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

"Horton's brush is broad--expect loud lamentation from the evangelical camp--but the picture he paints is largely accurate."--Parker T. Williamson, editor emeritus and senior correspondent, The Presbyterian Layman

"Christless Christianity establishes Michael Horton as the outstanding protagonist for classical Protestant orthodoxy."--Episcopal Bishop C. FitzSimons Allison
