Why Christianity Isn’t Working For You is a study of 1 Corinthians that can help Christians break free from the bondage of religion

Religion can literally stifle Christianity if it can roam unfettered in our lives. In Why Christianity Isn’t Working for You, Bonnie Werner helps Christians to avoid religion and focus on a closer walk with God. The author takes the reader through a 40-day study of 1 Corinthians in these pages.  Persons who decide to take this journey through 1 Corinthians will learn how to apply the good gifts God has provided to their own lives.


This is an incredibly detailed study of 1 Corinthians. Bonnie Werner meticulously breaks down every chapter, verse by verse. The author uses different main headings to provide a step by step guide for the reader. From God gives us everything we need on day one to what have we learned on day 40, this is a study that could be useful to the new convert and the seasoned Christian. I am drawn to the intricate details of this study and I will be using this as a devotional reference.


1 Corinthians is an excellent tool for Christians to free themselves from the bondage of religion. The questions at the end of each chapter can serve as a great discussion tool for small groups or Bible Study. Bonnie Werner learned how to study the Bible so she could share her findings in Why Christianity Isn’t Working For You. Her years of studying the Bible qualifies her to write this study of 1 Corinthians, and she had done a great job.


This book could be useful to pastors, Sunday school teachers, Bible study facilitators, new converts, mature Christians, and the unsaved. Anyone who wants to have a closer walk with God should get a copy of this book. I don’t think any Christian will be the same after the 40 days are over. Why Christianity Isn’t Working For You is indeed a constitution for the Christian faith.

That was 50 years ago, and it has never returned. She wants others to experience the joy and peace she has found in Christ. view profile
