"When Bad Christians Happen to Good People"

I read this book because the title intrigued me.  It was definitely worth my time.  Author Dave Burchett uses a good amount of humour, in the form of anecdotes, to deliver his message.  Yet, he doesn’t spend all of his time trying to make you laugh, and you will laugh.

As the book progresses Burchett leads you down the path to his ultimate point with honesty and truth as your map and compass.  All people, Christians and non-Christians alike, will get something positive from this book.  For some it will help them on their journey to become mature Christians.  For others it will help them identify what needs to be changed in their church.  Others will gain insight into why Christians act, and react, the way they do.

At the back of the book there is an eight-session study guide, with questions for reflection and discussion, along with relevant scripture passages to be used on your own or in a small group. 

The best way to finish this review is with a quote from the book itself:  “Mother Teresa said, ‘We can do no great things, only small things with great love.’  One person trusting God, receiving His love and grace, and then giving that love and grace back to others, can make a difference.  That is my heart’s desire.  You in?”
“I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah publishing group for this review”
