Jesus said that anyone who called him Lord but didn't do as he told them wouldn't enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This book explores just how much today's Christians follow their Lord's exacting instructions and finds that most of them don't, preferring instead the undemanding spirituality of modern faith. Replacing Jesus' teaching with a whole range of preposterous and n-biblical beliefs, Christians presume to tell the rest us how to live. 'Why Christians Don't Do What Jesus Tells Them To... And What They Do Instead' shows us why we should strenuously resist their efforts.

A former evangelical Christian, I have invested much of my life analysing the claims of the Christian faith. My other, academic writing has been largely concerned with the influence of Christianity on literary works.
