Many non-Christians find the behavior of some Christians off-putting rather than inviting. Many Christians do too! Now Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz, authors of Knowing the Bible 101, take an unflinchingly honest and often humorous look at some believers' outlandish behavior. This candid assessment of the church will bridge the communication gap, empowering Christians to share their faith more freely and helping those who don't yet believe discover the truth about God without being distracted by...
- judgmental attitudes, hypocrisy, and condemnation
- confusing mixtures of politics and the gospel
- defensive positions in the "God vs. science" debate
- extreme teachings about prosperity
- unbalanced fixations on the end times
- uninformed opinions about others' beliefs
- unprofessional Christian media and entertainment
This refreshing call to authentic Christianity will help Christians and non-Christians get past the peripheral issues and communicate openly and honestly about God.
John Berryman5 Stars Out Of 5June 16, 2010John BerrymanBickel and Jantz hit it on the head. We continue to look down long noses and turn people off to the Lord. That was never the intent of The Great Commission or loving our neighbor as ourselves. Every Christian, new or experienced should read this and take it to heart. "They will know we are Christians by our love" used to be the byword. It needs to be so again; and following these guidelines we can get back to attracting rather than repelling so many. The airy and human style of this book makes it a joy to read.
Michelle SuttonArizonaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5December 23, 2007Michelle SuttonArizonaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleI don't see this as a handbook for how to save your non-Christian friends. I see this as a book that will make you examine your heart and attitude regarding your own faith and as a result you will be more understanding of where people are coming from who can't stand Christians.The authors have pretty hilarious comments. Want to get a belly laugh out of your teenager? I did when I read him several things out loud. The authors drive their points home with humor, and what they share is often profound. This isn't fluff reading. Like the nose on your face, the truth was always there, but you may not have noticed it before. I agreed with about 90% of their comments. The other ten percent I was more neutral on or maybe not quite as sure I felt the same way, but if you glean anything from this book that will change the way you see yourself and the world around you, then you will be glad you checked it out.My favorite chapter was I'm Fine With God... but I can't stand Christians Who are Convinced God Wants Them Rich. I detest the "name it and claim it health and wealth false gospel" and charlatans who rob the poor and the widows through their lies and con games. So I got a real chuckle out of the witty sarcasm the authors used to drive their point home. For example:If you give to Billy Bob's television ministry you'll receive... A swatch of fabric packaged as a Holy Spirit Prayer Cloth--actual pieces of the beach towel used by John the Baptist during his baptismal ministry on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.Now that's obviously an over-exaggeration, but I found it hilarious. The other examples are even funnier. But the bottom line is the authors illustrate in every chapter why the hang-ups and weird beliefs in the modern Christian culture (often committed by people who haven't a clue) are a barriers to reaching the lost. The insight they share is amazing. And if you enjoy satire and sarcasm, you'll want to get this book.
