Authentic Christianity

Free Book Study


In our postmodern world, the common spiritual belief is “Truth is relative, so I’ll pick what’s right for me.”

But there is a singular truth out there—the Gospel. How do we recover the spiritual significance of our objective reality? Lutheranism can help us do that.

Gene Edward Veith and Trevor Sutton walk you through how Lutheranism shows how the physical realm and the most ordinary corners of our lives—our work, our families, and our society in all of its secularity—are charged with the presence of God. Each of the 9 lessons will help you regain a conception of God, come to terms with suffering, and gain a sense that your life has meaning.

“This book is about how Lutheran spirituality can inform contemporary Christianity in a way that addresses the spiritual struggles today. . . . And, just as it sparked a Reformation of the Church five hundred years ago, Lutheran Christianity can do the same today.”
