Many who call themselves “Christians” seem to be oblivious to and unconcerned about the fact that the character of their behavior is selfishly misrepresentative of Jesus Christ, and fails to manifest the “fruit of the Spirit.”

Jim Fowler explains that Christianity is not a book-religion, not a belief-system, not morality, not role-playing, not social problem-solving, not an ideological option, and not an …ism, before concluding that Christianity IS Christ.
Jim Fowler considers the historical background of Jesus’ incarnation, the theological implications of “the Word became flesh,” the cultural origins of modern Christmas celebrations, and the personal, spiritual intents of Jesus’ birth and life.

in Sunday School”
These humorous parodies force contemporary Christians to engage in self-examination and self-criticism of some of their practices, to understand the spiritual reality of the Christian gospel.
In chapters entitled: • The Etiology of Creation • The Chronology of Creation • Creation and Evolution • The Contingency of Creation • The Teleology of Creation, Fowler attempts to maintain a balance between the natural and supernatural processes of the earth’s origins.
