Read full description of the books Real Christianity (Essential Christian Library):After reading this book, I heard the song, Amazing Grace. The thought which I had was, what does a man do with the life and love God has given to him? This is the depth of question which this book raises in a reader.
There are many versions of this book, such as the Real Christianity, edited by James Houston. I read the version from 1797. Consequently, it is a harder read than the more modern, sometimes having references and mannerisms more with the times. On the other hand, once I started getting into the book, I believe there was a richness which modern speak does not posses.
It is amazing to see how the conditions in Wilberforce's England, in a lot of ways parallel those of modern America. I do not believe that we are as obnoxious towards evangelical Christians as the English was then. But we are on that road. But in many ways we are like the people Wilberforce wrote this book for—those who claim the name Christian, but do not take the actions of Christ. In this way, the book is convicting. How Wilberforce asks do we love Jesus? Do we act how Jesus would—not quite the original WWJD, but could very well be.
This book will be up there to read, particularly as a devotional. It is to be used as a devotional to lead me to a changed life, which is Wilberforce's intent. It is a book which causes me to search myself and see how I am in my following of Christ. It is this dependence on pardon which drives a real Christian's life. This leads to gratitude and love, not sin and decadence. (97, 99) The title of Christian is given, not earned nor can it be inherited.
