This book wants to Change your life.It is a call to action, and it may be uncomfortable to some who are content living as Christians only on Sunday from 10:30AM to Noon.Early Christians were accused of "turning the World upside down" (Acts 17:6) and the author, Vince Antonucci, tells us that Christ wants us to turn the world upside down with our love.The theme of the book is having compassion and loving your fellow man, and the author provides some concrete examples of how to go about doing it.The author speaks in an honest voice, in an effort to get us back to the loving and compassionate style of Christianity that we seem to have lost in modern society. If you are the type of Jesus Follower who only lives as a Christian for an hour or so on a Sunday, it might may you uncomfortable. But if you want to let God turn the world upside down through your life and acts of love, read this book.
The book is filled with random anecdotes and stories from the author's own life that add nothing to the reader's understanding of the real Jesus or what it means to be a real Christian. Some of these are very graphic (sexually, morally, or otherwise) and inappropriate given the subject matter. He also uses crude language throughout the book that some readers may find quite offensive.At times, Antonucci tells his readers to do things that are the exact opposite of what the Bible actually says.Here are two of many examples: Antonucci says: We've come to believe that Christians are people who behave and dress right and have good manners and act dignified and are respectable, which is basically a load of crap... God is not calling us to be respectable. He's calling us to the lunatic fringe. (page 206)GOD says: Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12) Antonucci says: Ask God what you could do to help [someone] get "unstuck."...What did he tell you?... If you have an idea but you're not sure if it was God telling you it, just assume it was. Especially assume that if the idea is radical and makes you feel uncomfortable. (page 85)GOD says: Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1) Antonucci's book is subtle and deceptive, and likely to lead its readers away from the truth, rather than toward Jesus. I would recommend reading the Bible instead, under the guideance of the Holy Spirit.
