5.0 out of 5 stars To Life!, 7 Aug 2011
By 
Mr. S. H. C. Hamilton "pipp" (england) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: To Life! (Paperback)
Steve Maltz rightly says that while non Jews toast 'Cheers' or 'Bottoms Up!' in a superficial way, we could learn from the Jews about celebrating the fundamentals of our existence and rejoice: To Life! Ultimately, the book is a call to all, whether Jew or Gentile, to return to a relationship with God which sadly has slipped out of the grasp of so many because the whole Church structure has been polluted by Greek thinking and paganism. We have fallen in to the trap of believing that we can think like God, and therefore that we can control Him, because we can second guess Him.

Personally, having read the trilogy in sequence, I would advise anyone as a beginner on this journey to read the trilogy in reverse. This volume I found the most accessible of the three, with the most personal and characteristic Maltz comments endearingly on show. Steve manages to personalize without swamping his material, or making it less potent. I believe we can all relate to the opening chapter, and that is perhaps indicative of how many people are seeking meat rather than just the lukewarm milk which we get fed from the pulpit.

Congratulations, Steve! Keep on blowing the 'trumpet'! Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Restoration of the church to it Ancient Paths, 11 Oct 2011
This review is from: To Life! (Paperback)
What a wonderful way God has of producing couragious Writers and Preachers who are prodding and prompting the Church back to its Ancient Roots.
L'Chaim - to Life. The abundant life that God has for us and which has been so lacking in the "religious" church of today.
Well done Steve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raise your glasses to this book!, 3 Sep 2014
This review is from: To Life! (Paperback)
If you thought that recovering the power and effectiveness of the early church was a pipedream, then I suggest you read this book. But don’t be surprised if you find yourself rudely challenged by its wake-up call to the Church. Steve Maltz outlines where Christianity has gone wrong since the days of the apostles, and how it is possible to rediscover a true biblical path that will bless our congregations. His basic thesis is that we have become worldly with the way we ‘do church’, being man-centred as opposed to God-centred, and that this has come about through the negative influence of Greek philosophy supplanting the Hebraic mindset which is all about doing the right thing and taking God at his word rather than analysing the biblical authors with a theological microscope. I generally tend to steer well clear of books on theology, but this makes such a refreshing change with the way the writer has so clearly, concisely and even comically grasped the nettle on this issue. This should be essential reading material for every church leader. The title is a translation of the Hebrew equivalent of cheers when glasses are raised to the health of those present – L’chaim!
