Ask most Americans, how do you get to heaven? They figure you earn your way in. Test most world religions, and the answer of how to get to heaven is, how good have you been? For some, if you don’t get it right the 1st time, you get a 2nd chance.
Andy Stanley takes on such popular (but wrong) understanding of the path to heaven in how book, “How Good is Good Enough?” As Andy says, “Smart, educated, accomplished men and women from just about every nation on earth are baking their eternities on a theory that doesn’t hold up under even the slightest scrutiny.”
Andy gives that scrutiny in a logical, compelling, understandable way that show there is much better way to heaven than the path of goodness. Andy not only takes on questions like how do you even determine what is good? Or, how would God even grade on a curve and how would you know your grade?
The ultimate path to heaven is based on the goodness of God and the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Instead of simply jumping to that answer. Andy patiently, passionately and persuasively works through the other “good” options, which turn out to be not so good.
How Good is Good Enough? is a great book to read for those who wonder what is the Christian view of how to get to heaven, for those Christians who want to improve their ability to share their faith, and for pastors who want to learn from an outstanding communicator of the Bible.
