Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent bookMay 14, 2017Angela SuzanneAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved this book. Cavey explained what the Bible and real Christianity is all about in a way that makes sense and yet challenged what I believed. At times he said things that shocked me like how as Christians, we don't need to follow the ten commandments anymore, but as I continued reading and how he brought it all back to Jesus, it made sense. He addresses some concerns he knows people will have with what he says and explains why he believes the way he does. I may need to read this book a few times for everything to sink in fully, but it is not theological in the sense that many apologists and theologians make it out to be. It is written for the ordinary person and you don't need a degree in theology to understand it. I recommend this book to anyone, as Cavey says, is a seeker, a saint, or a sinner.

VictoriaCanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5(Re)unionMay 5, 2017VictoriaCanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5First off, I love the versatility of this book and if my thoughts are somewhat disjointed I apologize sometimes information takes more time to come out fluently than time allows :)
(Re)Union at it's heart has a simple message, easily condensed into 30 words or less and yet has the ability to touch hearts and shift the worlds of its readers be they "seekers, saints, and sinners."This is because Cavey presents not just a book about the church, or evangelism, or religion instead he presents a book about Jesus and how everything about faith points back to God in all his wholeness not just aspects and facets.
I was struck by the versatility with which Cavey opens up his message. Filled with easily relatable cultural references alongside solid Biblical and theological understanding, Cavey doesn't insult his readers intelligence but simply introduces them to Jesus in ever increasing measures (for example the one, three, and thirty words sections exploring the good news). This result in a book that is truly reader friendly in layout and material (although application and reception may be harder), and is easily accessible to anyone willing to take a look, which,in my option, is how the gospel should be given.
For some more conservative or traditional evangelicals, the message of( Re)Union may come across as shocking. Though acknowledging many traditional ways of presenting the gospel (Romans Road, 4 laws) he also acknowledges the sense of incompleteness the bring to the gospel and the need to broaden the picture. For some, it may be difficult to adjust to this new presentation of a Jesus-centered gospel rather than an Easter-centered one. For those who are patient enough to get through any reservations they will find Cavey presents a well-thought out and obviously well researched message of hope and maybe even healing.
Bruxy Cavey is a talented writer who presents engaging stories, a sincere heart for people and faith, and a solid gospel message that it accessible to all. I cannot wait to see how the study version unfolds during it's release next year.
