Book Review: The Pressure’s Off by Larry Crabb

pressure1Over the holidays I chatted with a friend who was reading a great book by a favourite author of mine, Christian psychologist and all round smart guy, Dr. Larry Crabb. The theme is living by grace, and avoiding an attitude of works-based performance and perfectionism in our Christian walk. I would love to say I have read it, but only had a quick flick. Instead I will share a review from someone else. The book is definitely on my reading list this year. It would be great for any of your friends who struggle in this area. Praise be to God for his glorious grace!

Here’s the opening of the review. Click the link below to continue reading.
“Where the Protestant reformers sought to live for the glory of God,  Larry Crabb contends American Christians of today seek to be blessed by God. The result is a performance based pursuit of God’s blessing that leaves the pressure on where God never intended there to be pressure in a relationship with Him. Larry Crabb suggests there is a better way, a way that leaves as his new books says, The Pressure Off.”

One thought on “Book Review: The Pressure’s Off by Larry Crabb

  1. Larry Crabb has been around for a long time and is a good teacher and writer besides his profession. I wonder how similar or dissimilar Australian Christians are to their counterparts in the U.S.A? Would Australian Christians be like the American Christians as to their attitude towards God as described in the open paragraph of the review. I’d be interested if
    anyone who has the experience and knowledge of American and Australian Christians in general could shed some light on my question.
