First, I am extremely impressed with Waterbrook Multnomah’s Blogging for Books program. It was only 5 days ago that I posted my review on “Blogging for Books” (see my review of Under the Overpass) and ordered my next free review book, Mere Churchianity by Michael Spencer.
Believe it or not, that book arrived yesterday, and I started reading it last night.
Already, I can tell that Spencer has a good understanding of modern, traditional church culture.
I loved this statement:
“Jesus is used as a symbol to approve what we already are, to bless what we are already pursuing, and to prefer the people we are most similar to.”
I’m looking forward to Spencer’s answer. Since I followed his blog when he was alive, I think he’ll point us toward “Jesus-shaped spirituality.” I’m interested to see how he defines this in the book.
Anyway, if you haven’t signed up for Blogging for Books yet, you definitely should. This is a great program for bloggers who love to read. In fact, my wife, Margaret, even decided to sign up and start writing reviews.
