"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.
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
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.
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”
