Reviews - What do our customers think?
Spiritual renewal  Jan 29, 2008
Although this book isn't taged a "renewal" book it has as way of feeding a hungry soul weak from feeding on junk food religion. Mark has a gift for answering questions we want addressed but are often not. His use of the word and illustration of "boarderland" may be a stretch for some, just think of it as the old phrase "riding a fence" (uncommitted, lukewarm, having a form of religion but denying it's power). This book speaks to those who are spiritually weary and find all too often a huge gap between religion and a bonified relationship with Jesus Christ.
Want to be offended?  Oct 21, 2007
If you enjoy living as an "armchair Christian", this book will offend you, will probably inspire you to roll your eyes and put it aside. But, if you know in your heart of hearts that what you have in that armchair of Christianity can't be all there is, then this book is for you. Mark Buchanan will not inspire you with pithy little statements, the kind that 'feel good' pastors feed you, all the while ignoring the truth of Scripture. Instead, he will unveil the struggles in your heart and call those struggles what they are. You will find yourself in these pages, and be embarassed to have your truth unveiled for what it is. Then he will provide you with some excellent tools for dealing with the struggles you have, and assist you in moving toward Christ. I can highly recommend this book for those who realize that Christianity without a deep longing for Christ in your heart is no Christianity at all, just a cheap imitation of the real thing.
A Book That Exposes, Shatters . . . and Rebuilds; Helped Change My Life!  Apr 6, 2007
Other reviewers here have done a great job of describing the contents and layout of "Your God is Too Safe." Let me highly recommend it in more personal terms. God used this book in my life at a time when my ministry, family, and faith all seemed broken beyond repair. It was loaned to me by a pastor after a "coincidental" conversation. As I read the book, I cried again and again - tears of appreciation, understanding, repentance, pain and, finally, hope. Buchanan asks the really tough, honest questions about God that I had struggled with my whole life; how do you trust a God Who, at times, makes His actions appear untrustworthy? How do you surrender to One Who tells you that He will consume you? How do you deal with the frustrations of the paradoxes He has built into this human history? What does it really mean to trust? to follow? to worship? Buchanan not only articulates the feelings, but gently, firmly shoves us back to the Word of God and the God of the Word, instead of the "God" we try to create for ourselves, in order to comfortably "worship/control." This book was instrumental in starting me back down a long road of recovery, and I have given copies of it to many other people since. Some of them have also been shattered - and transformed - after reading it and acting on it . . . the book is not "safe," anymore than God is - but, both are indeed "good." Any thinking, questioning, hurting Christian, especially those struggling with any type of addiction issues, will greatly benefit from this book.
Not safe, but good.  Feb 23, 2007
Buchanan always stretches me. He takes his readers into the "holy wild," introducing them to the God whose "main business is not ensuring that you and I get parking spaces close to the mall entrance or that the bed sheets in the color we want are on sale this week." "His main business is making you and me holy. And for those of us who love borderland more than holy ground, whose hearts are more slow than burning, that always requires both the kindness and sternness of our God."

This book is best summed in a quote Buchanan gives from C.S. Lewis's "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" in a scene in which the children are somewhat fearful about meeting Aslan upon learning from Mr. Beaver that Aslan is a lion. Lucy asks if Aslan is safe, to which Mr. Beaver replies "Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the king, I tell you."

Get this book. You will read it more than once.
Your God is Too Safe  Aug 1, 2006
Well written, easy to understand and follow. All points well made with scriptural passages that back up message. This book really made me think and open "the" door I was looking for.
