True Christianity: It May Not Be What You Think seeks to define true Christianity and to help persons progress toward practicing it. The book's introduction is followed by 51 mainly very short chapters that are subdivided into five parts.

This second edition includes some changes/corrections, some updated links, and 7 new chapters added to the original 44 chapters that followed the introduction in the first edition.

The chapters in the first part define true Christianity (also called authentic Christianity or real Christianity) and offer general guidelines for practicing it.

Chapters in the second section discuss specific attitudes and beliefs.

Chapters in the third segment cover specific behaviors.

The fourth portion is probably the most unusual one. It discusses the relationship between Christianity and some other beliefs and practices. This fourth section includes generally very brief discussions of subjects such as atheism, agnosticism, religions other than Christianity, hypnotism, mental illness, and ESP. One chapter in this fourth part deals briefly with some of the unusual events the author has experienced or witnessed.

Part five concludes the book with a brief summary/epilogue.

A few chapters in the book deal much with the author's own views and/or experiences. A few cite numerous other sources to support the author's views. All chapters reflect the author's personal perspective rather than that of any particular Christian denomination or any other person.

Each chapter after the introduction contains two or more sometimes provocative "Questions for Reflection and Discussion."

The author hopes the book will help persons live happier, healthier, longer, more fruitful lives by coming closer to practicing true Christianity.

About the Author:

James E. Gibson is a former agnostic who became a Christian during his college years. He has written numerous articles for websites such as Google Blogger, Yahoo! Voices (and its predecessor Associated Content), Newsvine.com, and Helium.

Though the author is a Christian layperson, not a Bible scholar, he has read the Bible in English a few times and devoted several hours to reading in two local seminaries.

The author is a graduate of the University of Kentucky. His undergraduate electives included several English courses and his graduate school coursework included some Communications courses.

He holds B.S. degrees in mining engineering and civil engineering, as well as an MBA. Since his childhood he has loved to read and write. As a bivocational freelance writer, he has worked a variety of second jobs to help keep the bills paid while fulfilling his dream of developing a writing career.

A series of unusual events/coincidences and the author's inappropriate way of speaking about them led to a series of things that resulted in a few brief psychiatric hospitalizations for him and outpatient psychiatric treatment during the period of 1993 to 1996. But he was blessed immeasurably during that time and is blessed immeasurably now as well. That period gave him additional insights into Christianity.

The author is a very ecumenical nondenominational Christian who is not currently a formal member of any specific Christian congregation though he enjoys visiting various churches (and has even visited a mosque and a synagogue). He feels there are nice persons in each congregation and feels linked to each as part of the worldwide Christian church.

He would love to see everyone live happier, healthier, longer lives with no sin, pain, or suffering and then go on to live forever in heaven. He feels that as we come closer to practicing true Christianity, we come closer to reaching this ideal, too.
