I listened to the audiobook of this on the way to Batavia. It’s basically a book about the fear that we (Christians) have about getting involved with God. It was a challenging book, and one that covered a topic that I think needs serious consideration in today’s church: evangelism reform. The audio version of the book lost me at times (it has to be a pretty interesting audiobook not to!). But, the main thing I pulled from this book is a lesson I can’t learn enough: If God is all I say He is, strong faith should make that apparent in my actions.
Note: This book review has been included in my site for historical purposes. I might not hold the same views as I did when it was written. If I don’t, hopefully I’m more right now…
