Publisher's Description


Give your life away to change this world and God will change you…for the best.
A rising voice in the missional movement, Palmer Chinchen challenges Christians to a new kind of spiritual formation—one focused on pouring out our life for others and radical dependence upon God.
When we get out of our comfort zone, our souls are awakened—everything seems more alive and vibrant. So why don’t we live our faith that way? Why is it that our faith can easily become an old, tired routine instead of an exhilarating, God-honoring lifestyle?

Discover why true religion involves engaging the problems in our world as we go with the good news of the gospel. And in the process of pouring ourselves out for others, we’ll see God radically transform our own hearts as well.

    I was really excited to read this book because of the focus on missions and the importance of missions as part of spiritual growth. The book is well-written - the author probably writes like he speaks. It was very easy to read. The book is also filled with inspirational tales of the author's missions experiences overseas. The stories express a passion for spreading the gospel and encourage readers to put what they're reading into practice. However, I had some strong theological misgivings throughout the book. First, the author continually encourages readers to become an "expatriate." Chinchen uses "expatriate" to "describe an extraordinary life, a life of adventure, a life of uncertainty, a life of exhilaration, a life worth living" (p. 51). The Bible's focus on missions is not about a big adventure but rather about spreading the glory of God. Another chapter focused on the idea that we as Christians are supposed to take pieces of heaven into places of hell. I completely agreed with his supposition that hell-like places/events include genocide, rape, starving children, etc. I strongly disagreed with his thoughts that "pieces of heaven" included things like a Krispy Kreme donut. I realize that we all talk about how great heaven is going to be and how beautiful it's going to be with the streets of gold and the giant mansions, but heaven's going to be great because of GOD. Certainly not because we had a Krispy Kreme donut here on earth and that gave me a small taste of what heaven is going to be like. I pray that when I am in heaven I am so focused on worshiping the creator and savior of the universe that I don't ever want another thing besides HIM. There was just a real disconnect for me with the examples that the author gave and the thoughts he expressed around them. I would have preferred to see a book more focused on God rather than on our opportunity to have a great adventure doing missions. I received this book for free from The B&B Media Group.

    There are places of hell on earth and we heard about them every day, we are so blessed here in the United States but the way things are going I'm not sure how much longer.The author tell in this book about the places he has been too and seen where there is not food or clothes, and I believe in helping anyone in need BUT I feel as though we need to help our own people before we go to a different county. As I look around and see all the people here in the US that has no jobs because all our work has been sent somewhere overseas. There are children being abused by parents or by their boy or girl friends and everyone looks the other way. I know how bad this is because my own granddaughters went through this in our front yard in a mobile home and we never knew about it. I still feel so bad, but the mother kept it a secret and threaten the girls not to tell us.So it is great that Palmer Chinchen tell about the places he has been and the things he has saw. The book "True Religion" is a good read so that we may see through his eyes the troubles that are here on earth. But thank God that if we are Christians we will go to a much better place when we die. There will be no more pain nor hungry nor abuse, everything will be wonderful. So if you are not a Christian all you need to do is ask Jesus to come into your hear and really believe, that is the key "BELIEVE" in Him.Thanks to The B&B Media Group for sending me this book to review.
