Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good but not great  Jan 30, 2010
I do think this book is good overall, but it's too long (repeats itself a lot toward the end). I also hate when authors try to establish a catchphrase in their book, and this one did. "A Western jesus.... a transcendent Christ". Found the lower capitalization of "jesus" in the catchphrase to be particularly odd. I get that the author is trying to prove the lack of emphasis Western churches place on Jesus sometimes, but using lower case letters on His "name" (or rather, what we call Him in our language, but still) is disrespectful, IMO.
Prophetic  Jan 14, 2009
I attend Mike Minter's church and this book is exactly what I would expect from him. It is not full of fluff, he is upfront, honest, and challenging to the church in America.
The Church needs this book!  Dec 27, 2008
I just finished my 2nd read through this great book. Mike hits this one out of the park! The church in America is dying. Mike Minter's book is like the shock "paddles" that we need to re-start our hearts.

There are several things that are out of whack in the Church today, things that I sometimes can't express or pinpoint, but the Spirit is screaming "this is wrong!" Mike Minter has articulated exactly what I, and so many others, had been sensing, but couldn't quite nail down. Don't miss the section on excuses Christians give for watching dirty movies and TV--you will never again take your entertainment so casually. Also, his description of the difference between legalism and holiness is a must. That chapter should be mandatory reading for the Church today.

Way to go, Mike! This book just goes to show what can happen when we take up the sword of the Spirit and use it lovingly to demolish strongholds of those who want to bring the world into the church (insted of taking the Church into the world, like we are commanded to do). Minter takes every thought of the immoral church-goer captive, and makes their thoughts obedient to Christ. All of this in a humble, non-judgemental, but straight-out-truthful way.

Buy this book! Make your church leaders read it. Use it to lead a Bible study. Help the Church once again be the Church!

An honest assessment of christians today  Dec 8, 2007
First, by way of disclosure, I used to attend Pastor Minter's church in Reston but has recently relocated to California. This book is a collection of many sermons that Mike has preached in the pulpit in the past with some additional thoughts and insights added. I have always appreciated his honesty, true to the scripture and most importantly, the convicting tone of his preaching. If you are looking for a 10 step plan to overcome a life crisis, or a sugar coated interpretation of what the bible has to say about the western Christian culture, you won't find them here. Drawn from his years of experience in pastoring the church, Mike laid bare in front of us many of the distorted views of modern Christians in America's churches today. Read it. Reflect upon it. Act on it.
A must read!  Oct 5, 2007
This is truly a wonderful book from a pastor with over 32 years experience as a pastor. Mike Minter discusses some of the real problems facing the American churches today, too many to list. One of the many topics discussed is the importance of the church goer/member to not sweat the small stuff and get their priorities right on what is truly important to God regarding our churches. For example, Pastor Minter brings up a good point about how futile it is to worry about re-carpeting a church rather than using such funds to feed the poor or support missionaries. Another good example is how our worship services are structured from 60 - 90 minutes, the amount of time it takes to watch many a TV program, where in many parts of the world, worship lasts six hours. The theme being how can Americans think their heart is with God when they devote such a limited time to worship?
This book is a must read for every seminarian of every denomination. There is too much wisdom gained from experience here that is so useful to clergy in American churches. For every church member involved in their church budget may find this book uplifting.
This book is a must read for every Christian in America.
