I left a short review of this book on my Instagram account and it clearly struck a chord with people, so I am going to repost my Instagram caption here.

Searching for Sunday Review
I think it goes without saying that Rachel and I have plenty of beliefs that are vastly different, but this book was very thought-provoking.
It’s no secret that I am struggling with church right now. Not with my faith in God. NOT with my relationship with Jesus but church itself…both the entity and the collective church body. How do we reconcile the modern church with the historical church?
I know we are called to love our neighbor (hint: Jesus made it easy: everyone is our neighbor). I know that the book of James asks the question, “What good is it to tell someone God bless you and send them away hungry and cold?”
I know that Jesus made it clear that the Pharisee’s focus on outward appearances and religion was all wrong.
So, where does that leave me in 2019? I’m not really sure, to be honest. But I am praying. I am seeking. I am open to God’s call.
That was the entirety of my Instagram caption and I have since received many messages about it. So many people are struggling.
A Radical Journey: But What Does Jesus Have to Say?
If you are a regular visitor to my site then you likely understand why
So I am now embarking on a radical journey. To read the New Testament (yes, I’ve read it before plenty of times) and discover what exactly Jesus has to say.
Because really, He’s the only one who’s opinion matters.
