If Generation Next is supposed to question everything and trust no one, where does faith fit in?Consumers demand that their food be pesticide--free, their cosmetics and shampoo be paraben-free, and that everything possible--from clothes to toilet paper--be made without additives or chemicals. But there's nothing that has more additives to the original product than Christia ...more

What a disappointing book. I was looking forward to reading this one, but it failed to make a good impression.

On the plus side, he acknowledges that God is known by faith, and that faith should be in God, not in church or other people, since those can let you down.

The first flaw in this search to find the "organic Jesus" is the inane set up of this book; even my teens found all the little blurbs, sidetracks and suggestions to post things online distracting and not well done. If indeed people are

Scott Douglas' #OrganicJesus: Finding Your Way to an Unprocessed, GMO-Free Christianity is one of the wittiest books on spirituality and the Christian faith that I've ever read. Here, Douglas gives us deep spiritual wisdom that comes from walking the Way of Jesus, with Jesus, in a language that the culture of social media will "get" -- in short sidebars, quizzes and funny footnotes, Douglas writes with a grit and humor that will appear to all those who have been turned off by the glib answers an ...more

This book was so refreshing! Such a cookies-on-the-bottom-shelf view of what it means to follow Jesus. Not one part of this was boring or run of the mill. The voice of the author was clear and to the point. Some of my favorite parts were the footnotes which were humorous and/or educational in nature. If you want to be reminded of who Jesus is and why being a follower of Jesus is worth it all, this would be a good book for you to read. Highly recommend!

I'm been avoiding dealing with my questions of spirituality and doubts for years now, but I feel like this book helped me reach a place where I can finally discover who God is to me. It's also brought about a lot of discussion with friends and family that I desperately needed. If only more of us spoke so candidly about Christianity. ...more

First off, this book is strictly for those of the faith. This will not swing anyone over from non-belief, unless they're already on the brink and are looking for a brand of Christianity that doesn't treat believers of other faiths as though they were subhuman heathens. You will not, for instance, read Scott defending witch burning because, "their hearts were in the right place." (Sorry Clive, I'm never, ever going to let that one go) As someone coming from the other side, there are numerous poin ...more

In our context it can be increasingly more difficult to come to a full understanding of who Jesus is, why He mattered and what to do in response. Alot of speculation gets mixed in to cultural views of who Jesus is and before long it is easy to see people adopt a version of Jesus that looks little like the man we see in the Bible. Douglas takes on an interesting challenge in stripping back some of these cultural layers to uncover a fresh perspective of Jesu

Irreverant. Funny. Provocative. Sincere. Challenging.

The Good
Scott Douglas does a great job of keeping you on the edge. He says things in a way that challenges you to think more deeply. He has a knack for seeing the ironies and the humor in the Christian subculture. But, he does this while a committed member and defender of that same community.

The Bad
There is not a lot. This book is not about theology per se. It does tackle some theological topics in general terms. This leaves the reader wonderi

The first book up for scrutiny, #OrganicJesus (Kregel Publications, 2016) as the hashtag and missing space between the "c" and the "J" suggests has a cool factor guaranteed to draw GEN Ys and people who relish fresh approaches. In the tradition of Buechner (Wishful Thinking), Miller (Blue Like Jazz), Dillard (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek), Lemott (Bird by Bird), etc., the book presents Jesus Christ, version 11.0 with some minor fixes.



The book reboots territory covered by many contemporary Christian a

This one took me some time to get through - not because it was a difficult read, but because of the annoying "WikiBreaks" and conversational rather than expository nature of the writing. If you're looking for a book of solid Christian apologetics, there are far better books to be had. This book had nuggets of truth on a subtle backdrop of postmodernism. It will probably appeal to the millennial generation, but it will not make a list of my recommended books for a new or mature Christian.
