Book Review – Clutter-Free Christianity

ClutterFree Christianity

Are you frustrated with all the “extras” that have become part of your Christian life?  Do you feel like you’re trying to follow the rules but aren’t getting to know God?  If so, this Clutter-Free Christianity is for you!

Dr. Jeffress does a great job of helping us understand why we need to cut the clutter from our spiritual lives and get back to the simplicity of following Jesus and then outlining some practical ways of doing just that (WITHOUT just giving more rules and regs to follow).  We are reminded that the heart of our Christianity is not having the most correct theology or espousing the most important cultural causes, or even doing the most socially useful tasks, but is having a heart that is transformed by God.

This book is not a difficult book to read, but it is important.  He cuts through all the garbage that tends to get in our way as Western Christians to point us back to the cross of Christ.  He reminds us that we are to be “transformed by the renewing of our minds” and that can only come by our cooperation with God.  I really highly recommend this for any and all Christians.
