Not sure if this is the right forum for this, I apologize if not.
I recently sponsored a young man in RCIA who entered the Church this last Easter. He comes from an Evangelical Free background, and his father is now trying to get him to see the error of his ways. As a result, he has given him a book by Steve McVey called Grace Walk. The two of us have decided to work together on this, and he is reading another book so I took up Grace Walk.
I’m about half way through the book, and it’s one of those things that seems OK at first, not particularly objectionable, but the further I get into it, the worse it gets. In my view, McVey seems to really “gloss over” a TON of scripture while on his way to condemning what he calls “legalism”. Almost to the point where he seems to be saying that sin is bad, but it’s really not that big of a deal since we’re “reborn to Christ” so sinning is simply not in our nature…even though we are inclined to do it…
Meh. It’s feeling pretty much like the least Christian thing I’ve read. Heck, I read a Baptist pastor review of the book and even HE slams the guy.
Was just wanting a Catholic’s perspective or insight or opinion of McVey’s teaching. Google search turned up nothing, so I figured I’d ask you guys.
