The largest group in American religious life may be the disillusioned—people who have been involved in the church, respect Jesus, but question what Christianity has become. In If the Church Were Christian Philip Gulley provides a profound picture of what the church could look like if it refocused on the priorities of Jesus.
Philip Gulley is a Quaker minister, writer, husband, and father. He is the bestselling author of Front Porch Tales, the acclaimed Harmony series, and is coauthor of If Grace Is True and If God Is Love. Gulley lives with his wife and two sons in Indiana, and is a frequent speaker at churches, colleges, and retreat centers across the country.
“Philip Gulley separates wheat from chaff, experience from explanation and purpose from function in this book. He calls the Jesus message into a new vision - one that has both power and integrity.”
“Gulley puts the Christ back in Christian. This manifesto is a call not just to worship Jesus, but to follow him. It asks the daring question, “What if Christians actually began to take their Christ seriously?” The answer to that question could change the world.”
“Gulley has done a fine job pinpointing the flaws of the Christian churches and suggesting transformative paths to follow.”
“[Gulley’s] effortless and uncomplicated style allows for easy reading over some heavy material.”
“Gulley’s newest book is thoughtful, insightful and a joy to read.”
EileenCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5DisappointedMarch 4, 2011EileenCanadaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1While this book was well written, and caused me to think, I was deeply concerned about the theology. Gulley doubts the virgin birth, the deity of Christ and even questions the sacrament of marriage.
While I completely agree that the Church has erred on the side of judgment, and been lacking in love, it is also true that after Jesus forgave the woman engaged in adultery, that He also told her to "go and sin no more".
I too, as the book emphasizes, have been disappointed in the Church's response to many social issues, and fully agree that our response needs to change. But Gulley takes it a step further, which to me mocks Christ, and the reason for why He came.
Well written, but un-biblical. It saddened me.
