This book is a must read for seasoned christians ss well as new in the faith. It explains some of the most common misconceptions we have of whats in the bible. Things some of us have heard all our life. So good our pastor did a series on it.
Deeply thought-provoking, examining whether how we live and talk day to day really lines up with what the Bible tells us about the Lord. Ch. 8 and 9 especially, on the belief that "God brings good luck," really challenged some of my habits in how I pray, how I teach children to pray, and how I counsel with other believers. God really never did promise to fix all our problems, but we in the church keep talking as if He did. Ch. 10, on funeral platitudes, started out looking like a side issue but quickly turned to examine some central issues about evangelism. Yet his tone is always pleasant and friendly, occasionally humorous, and he's got Scripture to back up his points. And this is not just talk - Osbourne points out that these unthinking habits of mind can do real damage to one's relationship with God. My pastor borrowed this one.
