Narrow: Preserving Fundamental Beliefs from Progressivism by Brandon Foster is a book with a very simple and straightforward message: ''If we desire to follow His (God's) ways, which lead to life, we have to follow His desires and decrees.'' In this book, he illustrates how progressive Christianity has departed from the concept of the straight and narrow path, embracing biblical interpretations in a way that does not reflect the mind and character of God. Just like most traditional Christians, the author has felt annoyed at the popular group who claim to follow God while ''simultaneously casting aside almost every aspect of His character and teaching.'' The book answers the question: Is progressive Christianity following God's path or the world's wide and easy?
This book is a limpidly rendered discussion of why progressive Christianity is incorrect ''both in action and belief.'' The author offers compelling examples of how this form of Christianity deviates from God's Theology. In this intensively researched and skillfully articulated work, the author shows readers how the progressive Christian follows the current liberal, post-modern sway in thinking, examines the cultural and religious influences of contemporary religious beliefs, and refocuses the discussion on fundamental, traditional Christian theology. The book is sprinkled with powerful social commentaries and the author makes strong observations on cultural trends and human behavior. Readers will understand that ''Too many pastors grow arrogant in their “leadership” of the church. Too many have caused pain leading more away from God than to Him.'' Narrow: Preserving Fundamental Beliefs from Progressivism offers an antidote to the vermin that is liberal thought and progressive Christianity. You'll learn to distinguish truth from falsehood. This is a timely, resonant book that any serious Christian or anyone who wants to embrace the true path of Christianity needs to read.
