Eric Metaxas Announces Sequel to Blockbuster Bestseller

Religionless Christianity Calls Believers Out of the Pews and Onto the Battlefield

July 11, 2023

NASHVILLE, July 11, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ -- Eric Metaxas woke up slumbering Christians with his bestselling Letter to the American Church. In the inspiring sequel, Religionless Christianity (Salem Books, March 12, 2024), he will spur them on with the prophetic words of the martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who appealed to Christians not to "practice" their faith but to live it.

"The remarkable response to Letter to the American Church has given me tremendous hope that many in the American church are eager to repent of their 'mission drift' into 'faith without works' and 'silence in the face of evil' and to chart the biblical way forward. We have to understand what God wants us to do right now, before it's too late," says Metaxas.

Like the German church of the 1930s, today's American church has settled into the merely "religious" faith of Sunday mornings, a counterfeit Christianity that is impotent in the face of evil. The  acclaimed biographer of Bonhoeffer, Metaxas draws on the words and deeds of the anti-Nazi hero to show why we must live our faith in every sphere of life. Our times demand nothing less than the vibrant and courageous faith of historical Christianity.

"There is real hope and a reason to be excited about what lies ahead if we do what God asks of us," says Metaxas. "If we understand where we have gone wrong and rediscover our duty to live out our faith adventurously and fearlessly, God can not only turn things around but can use His people to change the world for His purposes in history."

The head of Salem Books, Julie Jayne, shares her author's enthusiasm. "We are proud to stand with Eric in this battle for the soul of the church. Religionless Christianity represents a powerful counter-thrust against those forces that have taken a weak and dispirited church for granted."
