Christianity has a history that extends back over two thousand years, and it has endured through many changes in the world. Yet today the contemporary Christian church is facing new problems. How can the church continue to endure in the face of today's unique pluralistic and postmodern challenges?
Pure Christianity clearly analyzes distortions that occurred in the primitive early stages of Christianity, and it restores the true identity of the Christian religion for future generations. Author Sung-In Park deconstructs the distorted beliefs of Christianity, going on to reconstruct Christianity based on the life of Jesus; he also redefines the meaning of sin, the gospel, faith, salvation, and the end, based upon a historical Judeo-Christian context. Believers will learn how Christianity was rapidly universalized in the first century, and how this universalized church would affect the future of Christianity.
The Christian church you know today is the universalized one--not the church Jesus Christ envisioned. Yet by understanding the true plan of God for the world in Jesus Christ, you can be prepared to evangelize this world, without threatening, in accordance with the divine will of God.
