Item Description...
The Movement is Beginning How do you live "in the world, but not of it"? Many Christians today seem to gravitate towards two extremes: They either entirely separate themselves from the culture around them or completely conform to the world in an attempt to be relevant. Fuzzy thinking has dominated the paradox between the black and white, and more and more Christians are confused on how to live an effective, culturally relevant life. Transformation is needed. The Journey Towards Relevance invites you to begin a journey towards that transformation-towards relevance

Refreshing  Jul 22, 2004
I thought I knew what to expect when I picked up a copy of this book; however, I was pleasantly suprised. This isn't your everyday, heard it before, falling asleep to a boring sermon book. On the contrary, this book was utterly indescribable, but I'll do my best to convince you of picking up your own copy. I was intrigued and shocked by the young age of this author, but once again I found myself relating to him first hand on his journey toward finding that balance of being in the world, but not of it. Kary does an outstanding job of relating his own personality through every page; he doesn't preach, rather he informs you of his own struggle, and how he dealt with it. I love that he wasn't afraid to touch on the taboo subjects of sub-cultured Christianity. WE MUST DO AWAY WITH JESUS JAVA!! I applaud this author, and his rare ability to intertwine the hard hitting facts with just a pinch of humor. A must read for anyone who wishes to step up their walk with Christ, and do His will.
not only for the young  Jul 12, 2004
When I was young, I was taught to be a separatist,in some ways this was a good thing, on the other hand it kept me from the people that needed me most. I now think I have become more of a conformist, something I am not proud of. I know that Kary's book helped me to see, that transforming into the person I should be will change my life forever. He give such insight on what God wants for me.The journey towards Relevance, is a book I couldn't put down, it kept my interest until I finished.
A Life changing book  Jul 7, 2004
When I purchased this book I was unsure what to expect. What I found after my completion of reading it was that it is a life changing book. The author cuts through all of the things that the Christian community gets lost in and goes straight to the heart of our purpose in this life. An absolute must read for anyone who wants to amazingly transorm their world and make a huge impact in it. This is destined to become a classic! I definately recommend this book for EVERONE!
Not just for the youth or youth workers  Jun 22, 2004
I initially thought this book was going to be geared toward youth and youth workers with all the talk of culture, but I quickly realized the simple and biblical truth of "loving God and loving people" that Kary focuses on applies to any culture. The concepts in this book can easily be applied to business culture where I find myself struggling. I enjoyed the book so much I am purchasing it for a friend who is heading to Africa on a month long mission's trip.
Escaping Separatism  May 21, 2004
I'm still chewing on a lot of the points you made and I'm beginning to work on incarnating them. You've pumped me up and directed me to the path of becoming a true transformist! I've got a lot of work to do, but thanks for the encouragement, guidance, and challenge! Hopefully with this new insight, I can make a huge difference for Christ at my college. Thanks for sharing what God has laid on your heart with me. I think it will challenge others like it's challenged me.

The book definitely stirred my heart. In fact, I've been in a state of "spiritual mourning" these past few days after reading The Journey Towards Relevance. I realized that I've spent most of my high school career living as a separatist. I'm sure God could have done so much more through me if I`d only been a transformist. I was challenged to reflect on what was keeping me from taking this next step of becoming a transformist. I came to grips with the fact that my unbalanced love for God, to the exclusion of a love people, was not true love at all! This was a very hard thing to deal with because my love for God was what I had prided myself in, being a separatist and all. But I didn't even love God wholistically. The sad thing is, is that I never even realized all this until I read your book.

The Journey Towards Relevance captures a struggle I've encountered. In fact, it captured many struggles. Once I realized that I was a separatist, the struggles that you mentioned about becoming a transformist were dead on. I wanted to be relevant to people, but I struggled with taking that risk and stepping out into a position that was no longer safe. I'd especially recommend this book to my other Christian friends in high school and college. Like I mentioned earlier, I feel that I could've had a bigger impact, had I better understood the tension of being in the world and not of it. This is definitely an area that all my Christian friends struggle with as well. We constantly feel this tension. Up until this point, no one has offered any real answers. This book sheds light on how to deal with that tension.
