9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Christine A. Eldridge on 6 July 2010
Format: Paperback
Church history can be rather dull & dry but Steve Maltz guides us through many hundreds of years at quite a galloping pace to show how decisions our church forefathers made many years ago affect us today This is a very easy book to read yet quite profound as Steve shows how the church once known as followers of the Way after Jesus' death & resurrection was gradually influenced by Greek thinking & over many years lost it's Hebraic roots. It's very punchy & down to earth, yet eye opening as to how Greek philosophy has affected church thinking even before many of us present day Christians were born. It encourages the reader to reconsider why we do things certain ways in the church & challenges us to return to our Hebraic roots & what the Bible teaches. I found it very hard to put down!

Format: Paperback
The blurb on the book may well be right - it could be the most important book you will read this year!

The central message of the book is HUGE. I am still thinking through the implications of the book now. The way we `do church' is largely based on Greek philosophy rather than scripture. You do not have to read far into the book to realise who the real villain of the peace is. St Augustine of Hippo!!! This man, revered by Catholics and reformed Christians alike, helped finish a long process of uprooting Christian theology from its Jewish roots and mixeing it with the philosophy of Plato.

I find it very odd that many Calvinists, who (quite rightly) work hard at defending the faith against false teachers who compromise the Christian message seem to have a complete blind spot where it comes to Augustine. This is probably because he had a profound influence on both Luther and Calvin, particularly with regard to the doctrines of predestination and the helplessness of man. And yet his writings were riddled with theological error.

The first few chapters are very similar to David Pawson's sermon series `DeGreecing the Church' - in fact I was left wondering which one had cribbed the others' notes.

The book explores many of the implications of returning to a biblical worldview, such as how to interpret scripture (more literally, less allegorically), how to teach scripture (more interactively), where to meet and worship (in the home among the family, not just in church) and how to view God (knowing His ways, relating to Him, not just philosophising about His nature). It could have definitely gone further. I would have liked a discussion on education, for example, which has surely been hugely affected by Greek methods.

14 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. E. W. D. Laird on 26 May 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a book that should be read by all who claim to be 'Christian' and every Jew who still refuses to accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah. The author, an English born Jew who converted to the Christian faith at 31 yrs of age, has done a great service by publishing his view, at a time when there is a real hunger for a revival of moral values and return to the simplicity of the faith, looking instead to cults of all kinds to find The Way, where it cannot be found. Time for deep repentence, Jew and Gentile, and for unity.
Enid Laird (81 yr old Traveller on the Way)
