>Not for the Squemish!


Unless you are the type who only reads books with which you know you’ll agree; I have a challenge for you.

But first a quote from the book, not totally in context so I don’t scare people away:

(the author writes about Christian radio, and the fact that many of them use a tagline, “safe for the entire family”)

“Some of us cannot hear that tagline without experiencing a bit of unintended irony. We remember C. S. Lewis’s description of Aslan from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: ‘Course He isn’t safe. But He’s good.’ The modern evangelical church, on the other hand, has become satisfied with a lion that no longer roars. The church has become safe, but no longer good.”

Blood pressure up? Though I’m only half-way through the book, it is challenging, convicting, and a tad confirming. I challenge you to read it. The book, “A Lover’s Quarrel with the Evangelical Church” is authored by Warren Cole Smith and, if you’d like (which would also help me a bit) you may order it here:
