A Fresh Perspective on Thought and Action?

When I was a teenager growing up in the U.S.A., there was a popular little book entitled How To Be A Christian With­out Being Religious . It defined Christianity in terms of a living relationship of faith, arguing that Christians need not adopt any specific thoughts or actions that could be called "religious". Although the book deeply influ­enced me at the time, I have since come to see that it has some serious flaws. While it is true that Christianity is, or at least ought to be, pri­marily a living, personal relationship with the God Man, Jesus Christ, this does not negate the importance of "being religious", but rather heightens its value and significance
