A new book on the bare minimum you need to believe in order to be a Christian. What, nothing about the Eucharist? ::)
If you will, you can become all flame.
Extra caritatem nulla salus.
In order to become whole, take the "I" out of "holiness".

The book comes from a Protestant background, going off a cursory look at the Table of Contents, so it doesn't surprise me that they don't mention the Eucharist, as well as leaving out a lot of things. Including the Person of the Spirit, so it seems.

Ya, I think the main the idea behind this is, I'm not really serious about my faith, but i still want to go to heaven, so what's the least I can do and get by with?

So you pray the sinner's prayer, you're saved, and "you'll want to get baptized". Fantastic. I threw up a little in my mouth.

It seems wrong to me to focus on something like this.
