Wake The Sleeping Church Author calls Christians to Action in Inspirational Commentary

 

Detroit - Nathaniel Stalling Jr. introduces his new book, Awaken O'Sleeper(now available through AuthorHouse), in which he identifies key issues and problems practicing Christians encounter today. He hopes to revive the spirit of the Church by clearly defining the Church's mission and how to carry it out. In this book, Stalling calls Christians to action on a variety of concerns surrounding the church, including the overlap in all areas of life and society, how Christians are defined, how others use these definitions, and divisions in denominations.

"This book will shake your complacency and help move you toward activism. Every time we allow someone else to define us we become more and more someone else," Stalling says.

One of the topics discussed is how the political arena uses the Church to their advantage in a chapter called "How Much Is Too Much?" In another chapter, he voices concern about the divisions between Churches of different denominations, stating that there are divisions in core beliefs including: baptism, communion, Christ's Resurrection and, grace.

A lack of sound teaching in many Churches is a major concern. "When you see so many so-called Christian groups stamping Jesus name on these heretical teachings that have become popular today, it makes me bristle with shame and burn with indignation", Stalling says. These strong feelings reflect his beliefs that these problems have gone on for too long and deserve an immediate, direct and firm response.

Stalling discusses relationships in all areas of life. He explains that Christians need to treat their relationship with Jesus Christ, their spouses, children,friends and co-workers with a fluid relativity and understand the connection. Additionally, he discusses the importance of knowing and understanding suffering.

"This book is intended for Christians who may have fallen down, but are not ashamed to get back up," Stalling says. "We need to renew our love, our commitment that we made when we first surrendered to Christ."
