Don’t Stop Believing: Why Living Like Jesus Is Not Enough


Michael Wittmer, author of Heaven is a Place on Earth, has a new book coming out in December. It’s Don’t Stop Believing: Why Living Like Jesus Is Not Enough. If it’s anything like his first book, then it will be excellent.

Here’s a brief description of the book:

Must you believe something to be saved? Does the kingdom of God include non-Christians? Is hell for real and forever?
These are big questions. Hard questions. Questions that divide Christians along conservative and liberal lines.
Conservatives love their beliefs and liberals believe in their love. Each pushes the other to opposite extremes. Fundamentalists imply that it doesn’t matter how we live as long as we believe in Jesus, while some Emergent Christians respond that it doesn’t matter what we believe as long as we live like him.
Theologian Michael Wittmer calls both sides out of bounds and crafts a third way that retains the insights of each. He examines ten key questions that confront contemporary Christians and shows why both right belief and right practice are necessary for authentic Christianity.
Here is an urgent reminder that best practices can only arise from true beliefs. Genuine Christians never stop serving because they never stop loving, and they never stop loving because they never stop believing.
