it was amazing
Read in December, 2009

Yes! Wish I'd said that. Actually, I have. Numerous times. And with often less than ideal results. Which I am sure will be the same response to this very timely and, unfortunately, necessary book. Evangelicalism has too often sold its soul for full pews and popularity.

In John 6 many disciples turned from Jesus's teachings because they were too hard. Imagine if He'd said, "Wait! That's not exactly what I meant. You don't have to eat of my flesh and drink of my blood to have eternal life, if you don't want. How about you tag along and enjoy yourselves while I teach. And I promise not to be so offensive. That better? Will you stay now? What would everyone think if I had only twelve disciples???"

Jesus never tempered The Truth for anyone, but it's commonplace today. Shame on us.
