From the outset, the implications of this book are terrifying. In this thorough, and sometimes disquieting, investigation of the biblical predictions, the Great Apostasy emerges, not as a foreboding future event, but as the very essence of today's...

"Christians are being deceived by a seductive, fashionable Christianity of cheap grace and easy believeism."

"Christians are being deceived by a seductive, fashionable Christianity of cheap grace and easy believeism." I believe this book is a MUST READ by ALL CHRISTIANS who are serious about their walk with God. "Standing Firm Through The Great Apostasy" by Steve Gallagher is a very thought provoking book that makes you take a serious look at your personal Christian walk. It is also an examination of the part of the 'church' that is in deep spiritual trouble. He points out the difference between true and false believers and the true and false church according to scriptures. Excerpt: "Writers of the past centuries called it the Apostate Church or the Harlot Church ~ a segment of Christendom that has shown itself to be unfaithful to God." It is frightening to see the large amount of compromise that has been allowed to grow in believer's lives and in the church in general today.



I highly, highly recommend this book and found it very encouraging because as true believers we want to line our lives up with the Holy Bible to become conformed to Christ's image.



Steve Hill writes: "Thousands of new Christian books are published every year. many are good, this one is excellent. In, Standing Firm through the Great Apostasy, Steve Gallagher holds up a brilliant mirror. The reader comes face to face with the condition of the church, the state of his own heart, and the holiness of Christ."



Dennis Lindsey writes: "Christians are being deceived by a seductive, fashionable Christianity of cheap grace and easy believeism. Steve Gallagher's book is reminiscent of Charles Finney's messages on revival. it is a timely clarion call for a return to the Biblical standard of Christian life and the God-ordained plan of redemption and revival."

A Game-Changer!

I was disappointed with Gallagher's book. I had expected a history of how denominations had turned from Bible believing to Modern or Liberal. Never the less I read the whole book. It is instructions on how the individual can remain true to the Gospel in these times of apostasy or if not saved that is born of God how to be saved for sure. Gallagher does a great job on those points. He also points how churches have been over by fake or false Christians. Many of these believe that they are Christians. Others know better. When I finished I realized that this message is badly needed. I considered a very valuable message for this day and age.

A Well needed punch to the gut.

My pastor was handing copies of this book out at church. A couple people I know read it and either couldn't get through it or didn't like it much. They all thought it was "too depressing" and "...I don't need to be told what I'm always doing wrong".



The truth of the matter is we do need to be told what we are doing wrong because society is only telling us what we are doing right and "do what ever you want, as long as you feel good!"



I did not find this book depressing. The only thing I found depressing was that my family and freinds are rejecting the message because it's too hard. It does have some hard pills to swallow, but there is also a message of hope intertwined throughout the whole book. Bottom line: This book tells the truth straight from the Bible. Are you good by Gods standards, or by the Worlds standards. This book will hopefully change my life.
