    Since I identify as an evangelical, I didn't expect I'd like everything about this book. However, since we are all human, we can sometimes learn from our critics. Unfortunately, this author, who is a pastor, is not doling out constructive criticism, this is one long rant. If he had chosen to focus on the positive elements of liberal churches the book might have been more of a pleasure to read, but I get the impression he is speaking to people who fully agree with him and share his distaste for conservative Christians. In making his case, he seriously mischaracterizes evangelicals, claiming we worship a "Warrior Christ," which is just nonsense. He claims evangelicals' religion is "fear-based," which apparently means that our clinging to orthodox beliefs is not because we are being faithful Christians but because we fear all forms of change. He claims evangelicals have an "us-against-them," mentality, which is ironic, because the whole book has an us-against-them mentality. I am accustomed to agnostics and atheists referring to Christians as "haters," but it's more disturbing to having an ordained minister do the same page after page, and "hater" is not the word I would apply to any evangelical I know.

    I cannot recommend this book. I think that even many liberals would be turned off by its harshness. The liberal churches have been declining in membership for many years now, and I have to wonder if this author's attitude (assuming other liberal pastors share his beliefs) might be one of the causes.
