You're enduring some struggles, and if you hear one more coffee-mug platitude, you're going to explode! As a kid, author Michael Horton would run up the down escalator, trying to beat it to the top. As adults, many of us seek salvation the same way. Misled by the claims that we can be happier, healthier, wealthier, smarter, and more successful if we just "give Jesus a chance," we fixate on a theology of glory and try climbing by our own power. But if God blesses the faithful with material wealth, what does that say about the sick, or the poor, or you and me in our times of trouble? The answer is too good to be true. Michael Horton gives meaning to our suffering by replacing pop evangelical culture with the theology of the cross. God climbed down through thorns and splinters and nails and went to the cross for us. He wants to say, "I don't condemn you. You don't need to climb; I'll come to you." Too Good to Be True allows us to face the tragic side of life in order to rekindle our excitement about the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.
