I just want to be a Christian Reviews
In my opinion, the best part of the book are the historical documents (including "The Last Will and Testament of the Springfield Presbytery) found in the Appendix.
Although I do not agree with everything Shelly believes, This book after careful and prayerful study of the Bible got me to start rethinking Christianity. I probably would not have even read the book it what people were teaching around me was lining up with scripture.If you want something to think about, see what you are practicing isn't lining up with the bible. This book will get you to look at the American restoration movement for what it was, a unity movement where the individual was answerable to GOD, not men's opinions.
I have always heard that this book got Rubel Shelly into trouble with some of the conservative brethren in the restoration movement heritage. I loved the book. There wasn't anything presented that was from an impure motive or anything that was heretical in the least. If anything, I appreciate my restoration heritage more, and cringe at how sectarian we are. Oh, but there is hope for Christian people to be simply, "Christians." Nothing more, and nothing less.
