John Stott on What Christianity Is

"Christianity is not in it's essence a religion at all; it is a gospel, the gospel, the good news that God's grace has turned away His wrath, that God's Son has died our death and bourne our judgement, that God has mercy on the undeserving and there is nothing left for us to do or to contribute.

Faith's only function is to receive what grace offers".

John R W Stott - "BST Series - The Message of Romans" - IVP, Leicester (1994) - (p110).
