Our culture has a few catch phrases: Be who you want to be; Do what makes you happy. We are told to do our own thing and follow our own rules, which often makes the Bible appear to be oppressively restrictive and hopelessly outdated, even to Christians! Responding to the misdirection of our society and misperceptions the church has of God’s law, Professor Jerram Barrs helps readers recognize the beauty in and purpose of God’s rules for living healthy, productive, and fulfilling lives. From the Old Testament to the New, Barrs demonstrates how God’s commands to his people were intended to protect them from sin and direct them in godliness. Rejecting the idea that we can earn God’s favor through good works, Barrs nevertheless highlights how God’s commands should spur us to obedience and ultimately remind us of grace.

Becoming a dragon is a dangerously subtle process.
You make a long chain of bad choices. The chain gradually wraps around you. Layer by layer, it begins to take on the aspect of scales. One day you glance at yourself in the mirror and a monster is staring back at you. You aren’t who you used to be. You aren’t who you want to be. You’re not who you were created and designed to be. Instead, you’re a dragon.
When Jim Burgen was nineteen years old, he realized how easy it had been to become a dragon. He knew he didn’t want to be one anymore . . . but how? No More Dragons is the story of our common, hopeful journey from dragonhood back to personhood.
As Pastor Burgen narrates the remarkable process of reclaiming himself from himself, he implores modern church goers to shake off the trivialities of churchiness in favor of the substantive questions that make a spiritual transformation:
“Is Jesus the only one who can undragon people?”
“Why don’t I like most churches?”
“Where is God in difficult times?”
“How do you shed decades of gnarly scales?”
Some choices will lead you to a better life. Some will kill you. Some choices will add a new layer of scales to your dragon, and some will slough them off. No More Dragons is about asking Christ to deliver you and learning how to obey him.
