When I read Another Gospel by Alisa Childers for the first time in 2020, it opened my eyes to the way progressive Christianity had slowly infected my thinking over the previous years, unbeknownst to me. I came to realize that it was, in fact “another gospel” and NOT the Biblical faith “once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3) Progressive Christians are identified by—among other things—the rejection, or at least questioning, of core classical Christian doctrines, such as the deity of Christ, Jesus’s physical resurrection, and the divine nature of the Bible. I became aware of just how insidious and dangerous the path of progressive Christianity can be, as it slowly leads a person down a faith “deconstruction” — the pulling apart of all the doctrines of their faith and leaving them with no answers. Most people who “deconstruct” end up walking away from the true Biblical faith and often reject God altogether.
This book follows Alisa’s journey as her orthodox Christian faith was challenged and almost destroyed by a progressive pastor and how her crisis of faith eventually led her to establishing a solid foundation for her historical Biblical faith. She went back to the earliest church in Acts and rebuilt that faith brick by brick. In the book, Alisa breaks down the history of progressive Christianity and then answers with biblical and historical clarity, in each subsequent chapter, objections/questions/issues raised against classical Christianity by not only progressive Christians but by atheists and skeptics alike.
Another Gospel shows us that there really are no new objections to Christianity (that haven’t already been answered) and that progressive Christianity isn’t new. It is just skepticism and postmodernism posing as Christianity. I have read this book several times and have given away more copies than I can count. I highly recommend it to every Christian seeking clarity and solid faithful answers as we daily confront this “spirit of the age” (Ephesians 2:2)
