How to Be a Christian Without Being Perfect : A Life-Related Study of I John. While Mr. Ridenour gets a lot right and largely sets the reader in the right direction, I felt like it was in spite of his reading of Romans as "Paul's 'handbook' on how to be a Christian without being religious. This becomes especially apparent when he deals with Romans 9-11 which, since they don't adhere to this reading of Romans at all, get incredibly short shrift (How short, you ask?

This is a great exposition of the book of Romans. It amplifies that we are saved by grace and we need nothing else.

Shelves: books-read-in-2018. I read this book back in the 1970s and it inspired me to become more practically involved in the practices of the religion/church of my youth, Catholic Christianity. Ridenour seemed to keep away from controversy without conceding truth, nor giving apologies. This is a great exposition of the book of Romans.

Fritz Ridenour's study of the book of Romans provides an antidote to the pharisaical spirit and shows that Christianity is not a religion but a relationship

Fritz Ridenour's study of the book of Romans provides an antidote to the pharisaical spirit and shows that Christianity is not a religion but a relationship. It is not people reaching up, but God reaching down. All Christians can enjoy their birthright when they realize who they are in Christ. Is there a way to be a Christian without being religious? Is there some kind of surgical tool that will help us cut through the facade that leaves many of us feeling deep within that Christianity is really ‘being good’ and if I’m not good, I haven’t made the grade; and if I haven’t made the grade, I’m left feeling frustrated, guilty and really not very happy with myself or. my faith. Yes, there is such a tool.

This is an easy reading study on the book of Romans.

It is simply the best. This is an easy reading study on the book of Romans. In this book, Fritz Ridenour clearly explains the concept of God's grace to us. He helps us see the difference between trying to earn God's forgiveness and receiving the gift of God's forgiveness. It is a book that I have given out many times to those with questions about what it means to be a Christian.

Very good, It makes Romans easier to understand. Can't be read fast, have to take time and think about it.

ISBN 0830710264 - Printed in U.S.A. For "youths," though no age range is stated. Paperback, 166 pages. Published by Regal Books, a division of Gospel Light, in 1985. By Fritz Ridenour.

Paul's letters are explained in ways that make their contents relevant to modern young readers. Each chapter ends with a "For further thought" section of questions and things to do and learn to further your knowledge of the bible.

Although this edition was published in 1985, the copyright date is 1967. The reason I even noticed that was a weird thing - the language in this book is more modern and relate-able than the language in Falling Off Cloud Nine and Other High Places (Devotionals for Teens), which I just finished, and which was written in 1981. Clearly, it's not about the time either book was written, but about the author of each work and their ability to speak in a way that will stand up to time (or not). Ridenour's words don't seem outdated at all! Ridenour's version of Christianity is, like Peterson's, mostly of the old-fashioned "love people to Christ" type, rather than the more modern hateful sort. Both authors, oddly, use a "batting 1.000" line. They both are trying to speak to young Christians and, like Peterson's devotionals, the questions/assignments at the end of each section in Ridenour's book engages the reader further. The biggest difference is that Ridenour's book is bluntly honest and straightforward, a style that never goes out of style.

I have two lasting impressions from this book - One, the world might be a far lovelier place if people could take books like this to heart and be Christian but not religious, could worship their god and leave the rest of us alone, could structure their own lives and not try to implement their religious beliefs as law. Two, the "homosexuality is a sin" thing has moved this book from the "I might read that again" shelf to the "well, it'll make good kindling!" pile. That's my personal take.

On another take, however, young Christians who actually believe this stuff will likely enjoy it and I think it will appeal to parents, as well. If you're among those folks, be sure check out Christianish: What If We're Not Really Following Jesus at All?, which is slightly better and has a similar tone without ever giving in to the need to throw gays under the bus. I'd 4-star this book, much to my shock, if it wasn't for the homophobe moment.
