Have you ever thought why it is that so many Christians are reticent to enter into the marketplace of ideas? Jesus commanded us to go into the world to deliver His message of truth, delivered in love. But He never said it would easy.
In Buyer Beware, Janet Parshall takes the reader on a journey through the public square where ideas are bought and sold but where Truth is sometimes difficult to find. She examines some of the most controversial issues being debated in our culture today, by looking at them through the lens of Scripture.
Using the prophet Jeremiahs instructive letter to the exiles, held in Babylonian captivity, Parshall shows how a people, held captive in a sin-sick, fallen world, can live abundantly and triumphantly by loving Gods truth and by boldly declaring it in the public square. Buyer Beware is designed to encourage modern day saints as they enter the marketplace by helping them discover the richness of Gods word and the poverty of the worlds message.

A clearly thought out presentation, Buyer Beware can motivate people to consider better solutions to social problems. The author presents practical actions that range from easy to more difficult, but can impact the culture for good. Jeremiahs message was to work for the good of the city where you live, because that brings peace for everyone as God desires. After just finishing this book, I am wishing to thank you for writing it.
Although I listen to nearly all your radio programs via podcasts, this book composed almost all of them between its covers. It is a thoughtful and engaging book! I host and teach inductive studies in my home and beloved church. Often I add a book for discussion during our fellowship time. This one is next on the list!

IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5Has a wide range of topicsFebruary 18, 2013IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The book is filled with a wide range of topics that relate to the world we live in today. The author, who is a well known radio talk host, uses biblical principles to write about how Christians should react and relate to what is going on in the world around us. I gave this book 4/5 stars for a couple reasons. My first reason is it has lots and lots of words! I know that is what makes a book but sometimes the paragraphs would just go on and on! Another reason is how complicated some of the paragraphs felt as I read through them. I had to reread some of them just to get to the point of what was being written. On the positive side I did walk away from the book with a better understanding of how important it is to read your Bible every day.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

The "Market Place of Ideas" can be a trap and needs truths that God's people understand.
The author discusses issues prevalent in today's society that are "bad ideas leading to bad choices with even worse consequences." Followers of God need to actively counteract these ideas instead of being influenced by them. These include present day behaviors involving marriage, the family, materialism and the life of unborn, for example.
