understanding what healthy faith is and is not.
So many books of this type seek to destroy or eliminate the
element of faith in a person's life or they are, in fact, taking
aim at one or more specific "ministries." Arterburn and Felton offer a view of religion that is liberating without insisting on unbelief. They encourage the reader to use the sense God gave
them to compare the gospel message to what they are experiencing
in a church, fellowship, friendship, class, or marriage and family situation. They encourage the reader to question and reason. Jesus always questioned and always reasoned and never
accepted that he should accept whatever was preached just because
someone said he should. In the spirit of Christ, these men encourage the reader to "come, let us reason."
The authors address the claims of popular religion and encourage
the believer to understand that "grace is free but it ain't cheap." They also warn of the dangers of religious addiction and
how easy it is to focus on religion while avoiding what are the
real issues of a person's life.
While all these issues and more are addressed, the good news of the book is that a person can recover from harmful addictive
behaviors and become a healthy person with a healthy faith.
_Faith that Hurts, Faith that Heals_ should be required reading
for every believer.
