When bad Christians...
I thought this was a great book! It is one thing for a pastor like myself to observe Christians acting badly towards one another and cringe.

Well, Dave Burchett was thinking the same thing when he wrote When Bad Christians Happen to Good People. As he said early on,... Read More
