Format: Paperback
Following on from "How the Church has lost The Way" by Steve Maltz, this does not disappoint. Steve has a wonderful way of writing, coming from a clear head and with an obvious longing to see better things in a society that has gone so astray. Easy to read for even old girls like me, and I think he has shown enormous courage in going for the jugular, yet doing so with a heart of gold. Clearly someone had to undertake this work, and Our Lord must be well pleased with his chosen servant. Every believing Christian has a Ministry, and Steve, I believe, has found his.

Reading this book 'How the Church Lost the Truth' is not for those who don't want the truth, but for those who do it is quite an eye-opener, and very helpful. Well worth getting to share with others who are seaking to understand and how we can be so easily mislead.

Certainly this is a well-written book, however Steve's thesis that the Church has lost the truth is overstated and certainly very questionable. His treatment of the influence of Greek Philosophy on Christian belief is inconsistent.For example, he does not provide an extended treatment of the influence of Greek thought on the development of the idea of the Trinity. If the legacy of Greek thought must be rejected, in order to return to the purity of the Christian Message, then the theology of the Trinity must also be rejected. However this would have serious repercussions for Christian Orthodoxy. Orthodox Christology is based on the 'homoousios' term from the Nicene Creed. This term must be jettisoned if we reject Greek Philosophy in its' entirety. The rejection of Greek Philosophy would also require a rejection of Johannine Theology,since the Apostle John identifies Jesus Christ with the Greek concept of the Logos in his Gospel. However, if St John's understanding of the Gospel was adulterated by Greek Philosophy, then belief in Sola Scriptura becomes untenable. However the main defining feature of Steve's book is a defence of belief in Sola Scripture.

I do not agree with what Steve says about belief in a literal six day Creation. Scientific evidence shows that such a belief is unviable. Also exegesis of the first two chapters of Genesis does not require belief in a literal six days Creation. The Hebrew word 'Yom' need not necessarily mean a period of 24 hours. Steve criticises the allegorical method of interpretation of the Church Fathers, and yet undoubtedly much language in the Bible is allegorical.

Steve does not mention the fact that the Early Church rejected Greek ideas where these were in clear conflict with the Gospel Message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wry, thought-provoking, truly delightful. 28 Oct. 2013

Maltz is witty, intelligent and literate. His writing teaches truth in a way that reaches out to his readers, and grips their attention fully. It is easy to learn from such a good teacher. There are Britishisms which may force American readers to think, but it is well worth the effort.

The church has lost both the truth and the way, and Maltz shows how to regain both. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to observe the worship of God from a truthful, correct viewpoint and attitude.
