Rumors of God by Darren Whitehead & Jon Tyson
A well thought out book on how Christianity should be. The United States is rapidly becoming nonreligious. Can we change that? This book addresses a myriad of issues that plaque the Church and Christians. If only we all read an implemented the ideals from this insightful book. In today's age, the authors' accurately note that Christians are thought of as judgemental. Is Christianity supposed to be judgemental? No. What happened to grace, and even more, what is grace? What is forgiveness? These concepts and much more is addressed and explored.
Through real life examples and Scripture, the authors present a picture of what Church and community should really be like. Unfortunately, it seems to only be "rumors" here in the United States. This book has the potential to change that and I certainly hope this book becomes a national best seller.
I like the book because it offers great insight and hope for a better United States that can be easily recognized as Christian. Recognized for what God wants us to be. It also includes a study guide that covers each of the chapters. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Churches should utilize the book and study guide in their congregations.
