Publisher's Description

Following Jesus is a journey none of the people in this book ever expected to take. Why did they? What difference did it make? The book you’re holding is dangerous. If you read it, you’ll see that God is still active in saving even the most unexpected people: An atheist woman who viewed Christians as “idiots.” A married couple high in the leadership ranks of the Mormon church. An African-American man who became a Black Muslim out of hatred for white Christians. You’ll be amazed, moved, and encouraged as you read their compelling stories and the stories of nine others who made The Unexpected Journey from non-Christian beliefs to faith in Jesus Christ. You’ll rediscover the power of the gospel. You might even be emboldened to tell others about Christ yourself. Unexpected journeys beyond • Mormonism • Judaism • Hinduism • Atheism • Jehovah’s Witness • Agnosticism • Wiccan Paganism • Buddhism • Unitarianism • Astrology • Islam • Satanism

    This great book take you through the account of people that were deceived by cults and their journey to Jesus Christ and the salvation He offers. The author talk to people coming out of everything from witchcratft and satanism, to islam and mormonism. I found the personal testimonies very powerful and moving, I love reading stories like this because it reminds me of just what a powerful God we love. He can redeem anyone from anything. I think that anyone who is interested in helping others out of the deception they have fallen into could find this book extremely helpful, however I would caution just giving this book out as a witnessing tool.

    While "Unexpected" was assigned reading for an evangelism class, I realized the best use in that setting is to remind the believer, no matter how long it has been since your re-birth - and no matter how much learning you have gained along the way, it is good to remember Jesus Saves and Transforms lives.

    Being more familiar with the other works of Rainer, I found his approach in this work refreshing and personal - both in the stories he shared from the lives of others and his own. Sharing his struggles, far from distracting, lends naturally to the post-modern genre. So while I would not buy "Unexpected" to learn how to witness or defend my faith (as it really does neither), I would buy it for those who consider themselves post-modern as the idea of "being on a journey" and "share how this has meant something to you" they would find relevant.

    I read this book a couple of times ago and truly I'm glad I did!!

    I thought about posting a review to encourage others who might be wanting to buy this. Evangelism is one of THE most important things to me and frankly shouldn't it be for us all, as our Lord Jesus would want it? Anyways, God Bless Dr. Rainer and his wife - seriously. I love the humbling way they approached this. Did anyone apart me say amen when he said that we should not preach unbelievers with "my belief is superior to yours" as our approach?

    The book does not justify, nor condemns the other religions but it does give a little background of them as the people tell their story.

    Wonderful - truly Highly recommended

    I really enjoyed those stories and wish there would be another book so that there is a great testimony for each state of the United States. It was so refreshing to see how God works in the lives of those people and what difference a christian can make when he truly shows the love of Christ rather than only speak about it. The only reserve I have about this book is that the author tends to speak to much of himself (his food preference, holidays in Florida and the likes), without this the book would be perfect and a valuable gift to be passed around.
