Mark Buchanan is fast becoming one of my favorite Christian authors. His book, Spiritual Rhythm, was spiritual and pastoral prose of the highest order. Buchanan is clearly a gifted writer--honest, God-soaked and reveling in life, even in the dirt and filth of humanity. But, Mark Buchanan knows a secret and he's letting everyone know it--the local Church is God's plan for redeeming this dirty world. This is the burden of his latest book, Your Church Is Too Safe. He urges us to come out of "Christian ghettos" and to assault the powers of darkness. Buchanan is brutally honest about his struggles, his church's struggles, and the weakness of so many churches. However, these pages shine with stories of love, forgiveness, and transformation ... vignettes of a marvelous drama unfolding in Pastor Mark's church. Other churches are getting it as well, and are beginning to live dangerously. Read this book at at your own risk! If you let the Biblical and practical wisdom of this book penetrate your defenses, you might find your life (and hopefully your church) turned upside down ... which means it will actually be right-side up.
