Item Description...
Overview
Christians willing to look with honest eyes at challenges we face as believers in corporate church life today will find an advocate here. We are faithful people attending Bible-believing churches, yet there is a disconnect between wanting to please the Lord and achieving full stature in the body of Christ through the church. Excellent intentions fail to materialize into spiritual development. Our efforts sputter into lackluster Christian experiences, a far cry from the abundant life we were promised.

Publishers Description
Christians willing to look with honest eyes at challenges we face as believers in corporate church life today will find an advocate here. We are faithful people attending Bible-believing churches, yet there is a disconnect between wanting to please the Lord and achieving full stature in the body of Christ through the church. Excellent intentions fail to materialize into spiritual development. Our efforts sputter into lackluster Christian experiences, a far cry from the abundant life we were promised. Doing more or trying harder to reach goals is not the answer. Goals must be re-examined in light of scripture. Confounding bigger with better, casting a blind eye to the schism between Evangelicals and Pentecostals, settling for less, tolerating toxic doctrines that misrepresent the heart of God to the people, subsisting on spiritual junk food whatever erosion and error we permit will define the ultimate quality of our lives in Christ. Carol Demong (as Carol Nelson) has published a young adult Christian novel through David C. Cook, and has published numerous articles when she worked as a staff writer for Bridge Magazine, an Oregon-based Christian periodical. She has an M.A. in English literature and curriculum, and has taught writing and literary analysis in a variety of contexts. Since her recent retirement from the University of California at San Diego, she has begun writing full-time. In addition to the essays presented here and the articles and novel mentioned above, she has written Bible curriculum for womens studies, as well as short stories, poetry and other essays. She is a member of the San Diego Christian Writers Guild. She lives with her husband and grandson in the vicinity of her extended family in Southern California. Other interests include playing the piano, research, and cooking.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Refreshing, Thought-provoking  Jan 12, 2009
This is a well-researched, thoughtful, and thought provoking look at modern Christianity. I enjoyed the author's use of mind-stretching vocabulary and interesting, unusual figures of speech.

Her chapters on Predestination were especially well presented and helpful in answering frequently asked questions. I enjoyed the book from beginning to end -- even when being challenged in my thinking!
 
Must read  Jan 6, 2009
Carol Demong hit the nail on the head with this one! This book is a great read! It reveals unsettling facts about our churches today, especially the mega church. As you read through each chapter a light goes on. Your eyes are suddenly opened to what is happening in the church or maybe you already had an idea or feeling and couldn't put it into words. You will see things with more clarity after reading this book. I found it easy to read & understand. A must read and a great gift idea!
 
The Bleating of the Sheep and Other Essays  Oct 24, 2008
Frustrated with the modern Christian Church? Do you feel like you need a spiritual vitamin B shot? Do yourself a favor and read this collection of essays.
Reader Rating See Detailed Ratings
Posted October 21, 2008, 5:11 PM EST: The Bleating of the Sheep and Other Essays is a powerful, timely, and important work addressing the myriad of hypocracies, scriptural manipulations, and misinterpretations that plague the modern "megachurch". If you have suffered through Sunday after Sunday of the same formulaic and unfulfilling services and thought you were alone in your sentiments, Demong eloquently and aptly gives voice to your concerns. This topical collection feels like the tip of the spear for an important and much needed change in the modern church that breaks away from an almost corporate commercialism and once again embraces its spiritual roots.
