So, we want to start sharing some book reviews with you guys on the blog. The first reason is because we want to share some of the amazing things we are reading with all of you with the hope that you will enjoy them also. But, it’s also a shameful way for me to show people that I’m finally reading books and sort of enjoying it. With no TV, what else was I going to do with my time? I might have to try this at home some, too.
So, here’s the first review.
“Adventures in Missing the Point” by Brian McClaren and Tony Campolo. The is a very interesting book by two very interesting guys. They tackle different issues in 3 different areas that Christians and the Church are missing the point on. The neat thing is that one guy will write each chapter and then the other will comment on what they have written at the end. Sometimes they agree, sometimes disagree, and sometimes add more stuff. But that keeps it interesting. They have some fresh things to say about each subject and really push you consider the ways that you have ‘missed the point.’ On some of the issues I think their arguments could be stronger. I wasn’t really convinced to think differently be some of their arguments. Overall, the book caused me to think and consider how I’ve missed the point. Definitely a book I would recommend and I’ve already given it away to a friend here that has already finished it.
Overall grade: A-.
