This is one of the best books I have read about what it really means to be "saved", "born-again"; a "true" Christian. I read it aloud to my dying mother in her final weeks of her life and she finally understood the truth of God's sacrifice for her. It is a small, quick read. Very clear and thought-provoking.
I'm currently reading this book and it is great. It makes you think about our preconceptions about the "afterlife" and if you really followed your thought process, maybe it doesn't make any since. Andy Stanley writes this book as if he is having a conversation with you. He is very blunt and straight to the point. I recommend this book for anyone who either thinks or knows someone who thinks they get into heaven based on "good" or "bad".
I've read a number of book by Charles Slanley, Andy Stanley's dad. I think that I like Andy's approach to writing a little better. He has a good sense of humor, even when writing about this serious subject of true salvation.
