Blind Spots: Becoming a Courageous, Compassionate, and Commissioned ChurchCollin Hansen, Timothy J. Keller, Timothy J. Keller
Christians talk a lot about church unity. Unfortunately, however, God's people are often better known for their divisions and disagreements than for a common commitment to the gospel. At the root of this disunity are the blind spots that prevent us from seeing other points o... Read More
In this provocative book, Collin Hansen challenges Christians from various "camps" to view their differences as opportunities to more effectively engage a needy world with the love of Christ.

- Good Book to Provide a Different Perspective by Melanie on 10/7/2015
I received this book to review as part of the Family Christian Blogger program. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The first thing that caught my eye about this book is the cover. The book has a distinctive divided color cover with two symbols on it. If you read the fine print on the side of the book, the cover itself is actually a visual test that reinforces the concepts of the book. It is very neat, and even my kids have found the cover to be interesting. This itself is valuable because it can open up a dialogue with kids and teens regarding blind spots.
I believe that we all have blind spots in our Christian life, and in this book the author addresses these and how we can open our perspective to have a clear picture of our own blind spots. He discusses the three ways that most Christian churches respond to things in the world: the compassionate, the courageous, and the commissioned. In his book, he talks about how having all three of these responses is ideal for the church. His arguments are not only informational, but I gleaned a lot of good information to consider for my own church. My husband, who is a youth minister, is now reading the book, as well.
