|Christian Pioneer - eBook for Cell Phone - Radical Christianity|
It is the intention of the writer to describe how the practice of Christianity came to be so often confused, inert, and unsatisfying. This is contrasted with how Christianity was supposed to work and can be made to work for the individual. Starting with the ideal, an understanding of how things became as they are can be used to tackle the subject of what can be done to overcome our present circumstances.
It is hoped that the Christian who struggles in his faith will be able, through understanding, to find a path to greater Christ-likeness (the objective of Christianity) and obtain the elusive descriptors peace, joy, and love. To this end, a wide range of subject matters will be considered to provide a context and foundation from which a broad understanding can be extracted starting with a brief summary of a biblical view of the history of the world.Introduction
