How Good Is Good Enough?

I just finished re-reading the short book “Since Nobody’s Perfect … How Good is Good Enough?” by Andy Stanley.  It is a simple read (about 2 hours).  There are deep biblical truths revealed, but they are presented in an easy-to-understand way.
Stanley presents the dilemma that faces most thoughtful people.  If there is a heaven, how do I get there? What are the standards I must follow? How good must I be?  These questions are presented and addressed using biblical truths, but you won’t find this little book to be laced front-to-back with biblical quotes.  There are a few, but writing a theological treatise on sin and salvation was not the author’s intent.  His intent is to get people to consider life, eternity, salvation, and Jesus.
He accomplishes his purpose.
I have already given one copy of this book away.  I wish I had boxes full of them to distribute to all who would have one.  It is a simple, straightforward consideration of one of mankind’s greatest questions … just how good do you have to be to get into heaven?
