5.0 out of 5 stars  Say goodbye to despair and self-righteousness…

on August 2, 2016
This is an important and accessible primer to Christianity that every American Christian should read without delay. Pr. Wolfmueller explains the historical trends that have derailed American Christianity from trusting in the promises of God, and restores the good news of life and hope in Christ to those who find their souls murdered by popular errors. Pr. Wolfmueller teaches us about God, about the scriptures, and about what God has accomplished for us through Christ Jesus.

Pr. Wolfmeuller teaches us how the errors of revivalism, pietism, mysticism, and enthusiasm steal away our hope and trust in a God who is mighty to save.

Buy this for your self, buy this for your family and friends, buy this for your pastor!

I love this book. It is written in a very accessible way and explains what’s going on in today’s American church. If you love the gospel and wish to share it, you need to know your audience. You need to read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book every Christian needs to read

on August 14, 2016
Many churches in America are leaving their people starved and weak. The Gospel is preached for the sake of non-Christians, while Christians are fed a steady diet of law. After salvation the focus becomes the Christian life, “Now that you’re a Christian, what are you going to do for Jesus?” is the common phrase you here from many pastors and teachers. The Gospel is placed on a shelf and the main focus of the Christian life becomes the individuals own experiences, work, and dedication to Christ.

“Has American Christianity Failed?” gives the alternative to the Law soaked, desperate, dry, tired, and anxious Christian, the absolutely free and “for you” Gospel, delivered to us through God’s Word and Sacraments!

I can honestly say, that this is one of the most refreshing, and encouraging books I have ever read. There was not one chapter that left me bored or wanting to rush through. I think every Christian will benefit greatly from reading this book. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book.

“American Christianity teaches the centrality of the individual, my will, my experiences, my decision, my heart, my work and dedication—to the detriment of Christ and His saving and comforting work. American Christianity most often preaches the Christian instead of the Christ, and our senses are so dulled that we don’t even notice He’s missing.”

“The Gospel is the alternative to the pendulum of pride and despair. The Law says “do,” the Gospel says “done.” The Law commands; the Gospel promises. The Law measures and judges, the Gospel forgives. The Law tells us how we ought to live, the Gospel tells us that Jesus died; and He died with a marvelous and gracious purpose: to save sinners. Both the Law and the Gospel are from God, but they have different purposes. The Law condemns. The Gospel saves.”

“The cross stands as the unwavering, unmoving, unquestionable answer to the question “What does God think of me?” The answer is this: He loves you, and He forgives you all your sins. You can be sure of this. You cannot undo the cross. You cannot undo God’s love for you. The love of God for you is certain and sure, as certain and sure as the death and resurrection of Jesus. This is the basis of our confidence and the source of our Christian comfort, and it is from this certainty that all our theology flows.”

Are you among the Christians who have tried and failed, tried again and failed again? In the book “Has American Christianity Failed?” pastor Bryan Wolfmueller reflects on some of the common teachings of American Christianity, and gives counsel and comfort from the Bible, which never changes with the ups and downs that we might feel and experience. Subjects like repentance, the freedom of the will, the clarity, sufficiency and efficiency of the scripture, baptism, communion and other central elements of Lutheran theology are discussed. This book takes away the focus on our efforts, decisions and resolutions, and points to what Jesus has done for us.
