Item Description...
Jesus said he came to heal the sick, not the well. Even so, some churches have a feeling about them that is vaguely antiseptic, where there seems to be an unspoken pressure to censor any unpleasantness. Jim Walker wanted to build a church that was honest and that lived out its mission down in the muck of life where Jesus calls us to get our hands dirty. In the rough and often unpleasant neighborhoods of the South Side of Pittsburgh, Jim began finding people who wanted to live in a new way - passionate, committed, and totally devoted to God. Be forewarned: Some of the stories and descriptions in DIRTY WORD might offend you, or run afoul of your expectations of the clergy. But if you are equally offended by watered-down theology and pallid discipleship, DIRTY WORD offers a bracing challenge and a fresh evocation of hope. DIRTY WORD is a raw, uncensored look at an unapologetic way of being the church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very thought-provoking.  Feb 3, 2010
Pastor Jim Walker doesn't mince words in this description of how his small church outside of Pittsburgh got started. He challenges his readers to re-think how they do church, and how they can welcome the kind of people the typical church might not be reaching. Very inspiring and at some times convicting. I recommend this to every Christian who wants to step up and step out for Jesus.
Not A Very Deep Review  Sep 22, 2008
Here's the deal. I'm not going to get very deep in this review. Jim Walker has been my pastor during the time I've lived in Pittsburgh for the past two years. He has some great visions on what could be changed about the church to make it more about community and more about Jesus and less about individual people and less about a building. A prophet isn't someone who tells the future, a prophet is someone that calls people out to live a life closer to God, and that's what Jim does in this book. It's a good read....pick it up.
in your face christianity  Sep 16, 2008
I began the book a bit skeptical-what was going to be offensive about the kingdom of God? I soon realized that the church, as we know it, is not what the kingdom of God is about. Dirty Word is a manifesto by a true reformer. Jim Walker stands in the line of Martin Luther, John Wesley and dare I say it, Jesus. If you don't want to feel like a hypocrite, as Jesus caled the Pharisees, don't read this book. But if you know deep down you're not satisfied with the status quo...If you secretly wonder if the church even matters, then by all means, read it. You won't look at your church or your denomination the same way, anymore.
Lovers of church as it is, beware!  Sep 4, 2008
Jim Walker shows that he has a lot of insight into the Kingdom of God. The first chapter was a real eye opener for me and showed me how much of church as we know it really stinks. Jesus didn't hang out with the "religious" people, he hung out with the one's who needed Him -- the hurt and afflicted. I got a little bored with the redundancy of the term koinonia, but the book is excellent and gave me much food for thought.
A deeply offensive blessing  Aug 2, 2008
The book contains concepts that I didn't want to hear, but needed to hear, and ultimately had always longed to hear. My boxed-in ideas about how heaven, hell, salvation, and relationships with God and with others -- ideas that I thought I had so cleverly packed up into my own nice little comfort zone -- were flipped over and turned sideways to be seen in an entirely new light. It's not often I find a book that makes me laugh out loud, cry tears of both joyful and painful self-reflection, and stare at the pages with my eyes widely bugging out of my head in ground-breaking understanding. Once I picked it up I could not put it down until I was finished, and it is sure to be read many times over in my life. I expect that many more to come upon this book will be just as deeply offended and inspired by Jim's life-giving description of God's kingdom.
