the weblog of Alan Knox article: Moving beyond “Churchianity”

Posted by on Mar 1, 2011 in | 7 comments article: Moving beyond “Churchianity”

I’ve published another article for as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. The article is called “Moving beyond ‘Churchianity.’

This article is a short ( articles have to be short) review of Michael Spencer’s posthumously published Mere Churchianity.

Here is a brief excerpt:

The late Michael Spencer was known to many as the Internet Monk. On his blog, he published articles on the edge of evangelicalism calling Christians back to a spirituality that was shaped like Jesus Christ. Why? Because Spencer saw a disconnect between the Jesus of Scriptures and the modern day church.

His book Mere Churchianity: Finding Your Way Back to Jesus-Shaped Spirituality which was published posthumously continues that call.

    Mere Churchianity was one of my favorite books from 2010. I posted a short review on it a few months back. Michael Spencer spoke my language better than any other author in the last several years. I loved that his passion was not merely to belittle the common church systems but rather to highlight the supremacy of Jesus which casts a large shadow over those same systems. When Jesus is exalted, everything else pales in comparison and takes its rightful place at his feet. I Highly recommend the book.

    Thanks for letting me know. Apparently Examiner has an issue related to notifying people about referrals.
