Faith is for Weak People (Book Review)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          This latest book by Ray Comfort, Faith is for Weak People, has a great deal of good information for fellow believers in Jesus Christ. Rather than focus on logical arguments to prove God is real, rather, Ray uses the Bible to show that God "[chose] the foolish things of the world that He might shame the wise" (1 Corinthians 1:27). Although it seems the book title is out to hurt those of us who choose to follow Christ Jesus, it is one of the objections others who do not understand God or His word use in excusing themselves.

          Ray Comfort started his ministry from his home nation of New Zealand around the age of twenty. Since then he has written sixty plus books, moved to Los Angeles, where he preaches open air style at Huntington Beach. He is a Christian apologist, explaining God's love by using the Ten Commandments, first, then he moves on to why we need a Savior in Jesus Christ. It is the same method used by other men of the faith, such as John Wesley, Charles Spurgeon and others.

          Along with Ray's congenial manner and his easy-going temperament Faith is for Weak People ought to be his latest hit in the Christian book space. Because of the fact we are inherently in-born with a need to work for the things we have, we also seem to think we can work for God's grace, salvation, but this is the furthest from the truth! In comparison, His anger is on mankind, due to the sin Adam and Eve committed back in the Garden of Eden. God made sure to give mankind another way to reach Him, through the innocence and righteousness of Jesus Christ who died in our place on Calvary's cross. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Baker Books for a fair and honest review.
