Clearly Christian

If you call yourself a “Christian,” what does that really mean? Is it simply a name you give yourself, or does it affect how you live your life?

On Tuesday, October 23, Concordia University Ann Arbor is privileged to host the book release of alumnus A. Trevor Sutton’s (’08) most recent work Clearly Christian, published by Concordia Publishing House. The release will be hosted in the Earhart Manor on CUAA’s campus, located at 4090 Geddes Road in Ann Arbor, MI. The event is free and open to the public. (See below for a detailed schedule.)

“I am very excited to celebrate this book release at the very place, Concordia University Ann Arbor, where I first learned what it means to live a lucid faith in Christ Jesus!” said Sutton.

In Clearly Christian, author A. Trevor Sutton addresses many common misconceptions surrounding the Christian faith. The book takes on the swarm of misinformation in this age of confusion, helping readers see how being a follower of Jesus means clearly articulating your faith and living as such.

“Countless people have given up on the Christian faith without really knowing what it is. This book is about following Jesus – being clearly Christian – in an age of confusion,” said Sutton.

Associate pastor at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Haslett, MI, Sutton is the author of Being Lutheran and Why Should I Trust the Bible? and the co-author of Authentic Christianity.
