Summary
Most people are Christians by default. Bethke highlights the difference between teeth gritting and grace, law and love, performance and peace, despair and hope. He begins with the unvarnished tale of his own plunge from the pinnacle of a works-based, fake-smile existence that sapped his strength and led him down a path of destructive behavior. Crying out for a life greater than the one for which he had settled, Bethke discovered the real Jesus, who beckoned him beyond the props of false religion
