- Fresh, honest, surprising, humble, and deeply biblical. by Joe on 9/30/2015
When I read the cover of Bryan Bishops book, I was immediately cautious. When I opened the book and began to read, more defenses went up. Why, you might wonder, was this the case? I was worried that this was another book that was planning to bash the Western Church and the ways in which “American” Christianity has been exported around the world. I was worried that this was going to be another one of those books that bashed guys like me, who pastor in afluent suburbs, for not being in touch with the true heart of Jesus. Another one of those books that blames church strategy for people walking away from their faith. When books start out with Barna statistics on how people are leaving the church, but offer no real solutions, I start to glaze over really quickly. Books of this ilk are a dime-a-dozen and the arguments are exhausting and banal.
Bishop didn’t quite lose me in the first two chapters, but I could see the writing on the wall. Chapter 3, however, was surprising and takes a bit of a turn as we land in India meeting Hindu people who follow “Sadguru Yeshu.” Interesting, I thought. He had started to set the hook!
