Colorado Springs, CO, April 01, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Greg Grandchamp is not trying to sell you on his religion, in fact, calling himself a Christian had no impact on his life until he grew in his own personal relationship with Jesus Christ and realized how many people (himself included) were what he now calls, “Cardboard Christians.” Wanting to change this stereotype in his own life, and in others, he set out to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. His goal, to stimulate awareness and increase the understanding of what being a Christian is really about, and help others enhance their own faith and restore their sense of connection to true Christianity.
“To the world, it is as if we are trying to build our numbers and that isn’t what Christianity is about. It is a life commitment and Jesus should be our center or life is meaningless,” says Grandchamp. “I want people to understand Christianity isn’t about following rules, rituals and guidelines either. It’s not about a nice person being nicer. It’s about acting like a Christian and being able to share your faith... a testimony of Christ.”
Grandchamp’s debut novel, In Pursuit of Truth (published by Halo Publishing, Int.) is about how Christianity today is often viewed by others as judgmental, hypercritical and condemnatory.
“People feel very uncomfortable talking about Christ. They don’t want friends to feel pushed. I want people to feel at ease to talk about Jesus Christ and his role in our lives,” states Grandchamp, “There is no middle ground if Jesus Christ is who he says he is—then that, changes everything! You can’t be blasé. You have to accept or reject him. It’s your choice, but you need to know both sides first.”
Too often people are turned off by what they see in religion. Many feel religious practices are bound by rules and regulations. Grandchamp asks readers to ponder and answer the question, “Who is Jesus Christ?” for themselves.
“Greg, in his book ‘In Pursuit of Truth,’ tries to dispel false assumptions of religion and show true Christianity is nothing more—and nothing less—than a relationship with Jesus Christ. He really reaches out to the reader to deepen their relationship with Christ. There is and can be a harmony between spirituality and everyday life. So many are understandably fearful of getting out of their comfort zone and taking those barrier-busting leaps of faith,” says Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina.
