The Naked Gospel

A friend's friend on Facebook recommended this ebook "The Naked Gospel" by Andrew Farley which I have downloaded here (authorization code is farley).

About The Book
Jesus plus nothing. 100% natural. No additives.It's the truth you may never hear in church. The Naked Gospel is a chapter-by-chapter assault on the churchy jargon and double talk of our day. It puts forth a message that is simple but life-changing. With a fresh take on Scripture and unapologetic style, The Naked Gospel will challenge you to re-examine everything you thought you already knew.

Some quotes which I liked in the book:

"Many Christians still walk in Old Covenant bondage.
Regarding the law as Divine ordinance for our direction,
they consider themselves prepared and fitted by conversion to
take up the fulfillment of the law as a natural duty."
Andrew Murray (1828 -1917)

"The Cross is the central event in time and eternity,
and the answer to all the problems of both."
Oswald Chambers (1874 -1917)

"Do not let us consider ourselves as far off when
God has made us one with him."
Hudson Taylor (1832 - 1905)

"Let us remember that [God] is holy and he is righteous,
and that a holy and righteous God has the right to say that
the blood is acceptable in his eyes and has fully satisfied him."
Watchman Nee (1903 - 1972)

"If you will but trust Christ,
not only for the death he died in order to redeem you,
but also for the life that he lives
and waits to live through you,
the very next step you take will be
a step taken in the very energy and power of God himself."
Major W. Ian Thomas (1914 - 2007)
