THE FREE GIFT is about Ken Willig's search to resolve a dilemma with God, religion and Christianity. He wrote it to communicate what he learned and to share with you what constitutes authentic Christian faith.
EARLY ON IN THE BOOK HE WRITES:
I want to spare you the heartache, anger, disillusionment, and pain that I experienced "coming out" of religion. So, read on. Grant, if you will, a guarded truce at least for an hour of reading. During that time I promise to make crystal clear for you exactly what Authentic Christianity is. Let me start by saying one thing for sure; Authentic Christianity is not a religion.
Authentic Christianity is not a religion, but a RELATIONSHIP.
Authentic Christianity is not a religion or a philosophy, but a relationship and a lifestyle.
Authentic Christianity is about a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Authentic Biblical Christianity is about a free gift that sets one free from the bondage of religion, sin and guilt.
THEN HE SYSTEMATICALLY BACKS UP THIS CLAIM WITH IRREFUTABLE AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND EVIDENCE.
