The Christian life can get pretty busy with many activities. Sometimes that busyness can lead to undue stress and pressure, even leading to the point where we feel:
• Burnt out in our Christian walk,
• Overwhelmed by church activities,
• Frustrated and hurt because we don’t measure up to someone else’s idea of what a ‘Christian’ should be.
In this book Michael Butler explores these difficult issues and brings a new perspective on how the demands of the Old Testament law should operate for believers who live under New Testament grace.
Beyond the Law – Where Grace Abounds is an insightful book that will help you discover liberty in your Christian life.
I highly recommend this book to all leaders and Christians seeking their identity and purpose in Christ to live ‘spirit filled’ lives.
Brent Douglas Senior Pastor Encounter Christian Centre
This book is a tremendous tool to help Christians make the transition from guilt- ridden, works-driven legalism, to a Spirit-empowered life in Christ.
Ken Legg, Senior Pastor – New Beginnings Christian Church Gold Coast, Australia
I encourage every Christian to read and understand the message of Kingdom reality that is so powerfully captured by this book.
Charles Kandregula, Retired Bible College Principal, Auckland, NZ
The Bible is clear that Jesus came to set us free. As Christians we have associated this freedom solely with being set free from sin – there is more to it. Yes, Jesus did come to set us free from sin and I am in no way doubting that. But there is more to the freedom that Jesus gives than meets the eye. Jesus also came to set us free from religion or legalism, which has crept into the Church.
His biggest “battles” were with the religious people at the time – the teachers of the Law. These religious people were known as the Pharisees and Sadducees. They were so religious that they debated whether swallowing their own spit on the Sabbath was work. Jesus did not take kindly to this lot and referred to them harshly: hypocrites, fools, vipers, blind guides.
