I was curious if anybody had read it. The description looks interesting. And it looks like its #1 new release on amazon for the religous and cults section. N David I'm assuming you have read it?

Legalism: strict adherence, or the principle of strict adherence, to law or prescription, especially to the letter rather than the spirit.

Example:

[Mat 23:23 NKJV] 23 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier [matters] of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.

Re: From legalism to grace. Anyone read this book

Is the author complaining about holiness being too hard, or about bad experiences with some hypocrites?

You mean like Cain, who just offered what he needed to offer minus attention to God. While probably Abel was on his face in worship when he gave his offering. The Church opposed to the Judaic Israelit system of the first century. Where circumcision instead of Holy Ghost was the focus. Having Church minus God? Matthew 23:23 shows us that tithe of even the littlest items was comedialble. But they did it religiously whether God approved or not. The tithe only worked if it was done out of sincere love, and mercy.

So did anyone read this book? Legalism to grace ism?

Is it about sloppy agape? Greasy grace? How to have a bless me club while the pastor preaches barefoot?

A personal perception of religion? Gotcha.

OK, place this book on the pay no mind list.

In my time from FCF, NFCF, to AFF, I have read my share of wee, wee, wee, all the home.
