Reader's Review: Breath of fresh air

I love how Campolo's somewhat liberal social leanings coexist with his belief in the Bible's truth. If you've ever wondered how this is possible or why it's important, this is the book for you.

Some of my favorite parts were a chapter on history/comparison/contrast of evangelicalism vs. fundamentalism., his discussion of the Just War theory (he's a pacifist) and the current Iraq situation, and his practical advice on choosing a job:
- Will it enable me to serve others as Christ would have me do?
- Will it enable me to use the talents & creativity God gave me?
- Will it provide me with emotional gratification, without which I will lack energy to love others?
- Is it environmentally responsible?
- Will it allow me to build community and will the workplace foster love and justice?

This is a must-read for any socially responsible person interested in Christianity but wondering if those beliefs can coexist, as well as any Christian looking to challenge his/her actions and be a better disciple. If you're a Fundamentalist Christian, expect a real challenge, but please use the brain that God gave you and think through what Campolo has to say.

Reader's Review: Campolo is right on!

I purchased this book after I heard Dr. Campolo speak at a local university. This is the most influential book I've read since graduate school. Campolo does a superb job of pointing out how the world views evangelicals and all the baggage that comes with the term. He proposes to the reader to replace the term evangelical with the term "red-letter Christian" as a way to help Christians define themselves instead of being at the mercy of the media and the general consensus of the public. Campolo tackles hot-button issues with much precision and thoughtfulness. He is truly a prophetic voice in our world today. I've given away several copies already!
