For the vast majority of Americans claiming the name of Christ today, perfunctory ritual has replaced relationship. They believe that going to church every Sunday, volunteering, tithing, and praying before dinner fulfills their religious requirement. Worse, they continue on with life the way they want to live it, without regard for God’s plan or design. This is completely opposite to what God desires.
It’s time for Christians to return to a loving, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Retired pastor Dave Stillie shows you how in Extreme Surrender. This study sheds light on the things Christians do today with the intention of worshipping God that, in reality, do just the opposite.
Stillie breaks down key rituals that Americans participate in and shows how they lead directly away from relationship with God. These rituals include liberalism, legalism, routine, and even busyness. Using Scripture to support his position, Stillie examines these pitfalls and then offers suggestions as to how to get back on track with the will and purpose of God. Questions for further discussion are included for each chapter.
It’s time to break free from futile religious ritual and develop a strong, intimate, and genuine relationship with almighty God. Extreme Surrender offers a much-needed wake-up call to the body of Christ.
