Why “Let Go and Let God” Is a Bad Idea

The following is a guest post written by Andy Naselli, author of No Quick Fix: Where Higher Life Theology Came From, What It Is, and Why It’s Harmful.

A silver lining of theological controversy is that it can help you refine how you understand what the Bible teaches. In this case, analyzing higher life theology will help you better understand the Christian life. Higher life theology is harmful. I know from experience. That’s why I wrote my first PhD dissertation on it in 2006. My new book, No Quick Fix, is a more accessible version of that more detailed and academic work. I have stripped out most of the academic jargon and rewritten it to make it more inviting for thoughtful lay people.

6 Days Left to Get the ECPA Bible of the Year for 20% Off

Seeing Scripture through the eyes of its original readers takes effort. It’s not enough to read the text and consult a few cross-references. To enter the world of the original audience, we must peel back the layers of history and reveal the culture, beliefs, and history that shaped the world they lived in.

The NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible Notes simplifies that complex process, putting the insights of two experts on Biblical backgrounds right beside the biblical text. Drs. John H. Walton and Craig S. Keener have teamed up to bring you fascinating insights that illuminate the biblical world—so you can apply its principles to your modern life.

The work of Charles Octavius Boothe provides us with an opportunity to engage with a historically muted perspective. Plain Theology for Plain People may be over 100 years old, but it is no less important today than when it was first published.
