Archives For book reviews

Today I am reviewing Margaret Feinberg’s book, The Organic God. I have heard Margaret’s name for a number of years via social media as well as through co-workers, yet, I never managed to read her writings.

I’m glad this changed.

Margaret is an incredible writer. She crafts word pictures and uses stories to the fullest, illustrating the truths she is bringing to light.

I’ve already referenced her in one previous post, using her elaboration on a verse in Proverbs to talk of the “not so nice parts of our lives.”

In this book, she defines the Organic God as one we pursue, yet is mysterious. Unlike other mysteries which confuse or discourage, the mystery of God draws us into a deeper pursuit of Him

Deep and Wide by Andy Stanley

November 12, 2012

Today  I am reviewing Andy Stanley’s most recent book, Deep and Wide: Creating Churches Unchurched People Love to Attend. Andy’s book is predominately geared towards pastors, church leaders, or church planters to help them reach the unchurched through their churches.

I am not a pastor, church leader, or church planter.

And I love this book.

The premise of the book is to discuss how church can be more inviting to the unchurched while not compromising on the essentials.

I really enjoyed reading the story of Andy and his father Charles. Charles Stanley is a very popular and successful pastor in his own right in the Southern Baptist denomination. The story of how Andy stepped out of his shadow and into his own path is compelling.
