Product Description

Jesus showed us a completely new and different way to live, and we really can do it. I believe that when Jesus told people to turn the other cheek, trust God completely, love their enemies, and even walk on water, he actually thought they could. So do I. Call me crazy, but I'm going to try. --From the Preface

Publisher's Description

Modern Christians profess to be authentic, but do we wrap ourselves in Christianese more than Christlikeness? A Different Kind of Crazy challenges you to take Jesus' teaching, and make it your own.

Author Lawrence W. Wilson points out that Jesus did not say, "Repeat after me," as if the faith were a set of arithmetic tables to be memorized and repeated on command. He said, "Follow me." Jesus showed us a way to live, from loving our enemies to remaining pure when society encourages us to indulge our desires.

Are you ready to truly follow Jesus and experience a life your friends, family, and the world may see as A Different Kind of Crazy? Take a risk. Change your life. And grow more like Jesus.

Includes a discussion guide to facilitate small group discussions.

Publisher's Weekly

Wilson (Why Me? Straight Talk About Suffering) gets in the face of evangelicals as he writes in a somewhat acerbic style, posing challenges to today's church on matters both personal and societal. This book will spur readers to examine their motives, actions and reactions to life's dilemmas in light of Jesus' teaching and example. Tackling those niggling character qualities that Christians often make excuses for not exhibiting, Wilson uses personal narratives and brief vignettes from today's news to expound upon the Christ-like responses the world requires of God followers: authenticity, vision, significance, holiness, purity, forbearance, charity, trust, tolerance, faith, integrity and commitment. Throughout this work, Wilson generates a good share of his material by citing stories from his own childhood and past. This works both for and against him; some Christian readers will relate to his frankness and the criticisms he lodges against the church, finding his jeremiad hard-hitting but necessary. Others, however, will wince as he describes his own missteps in relating to others, as the book's tone alternates between cynicism and contrition. Rather than encourage change, this book can leave a bitter aftertaste. (July) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
