Now I'm giving away Bravehearted Gospel by Eric Ludy (non-fiction)

To enter for a chance to win this book simply post a comment after reading the description of the book and tell me what you like about it. I'll pick a winner on Sunday. Peace!



About the Book:

Eric Ludy calls believers to put a stop to an alarming trend in today's church. Contemporary culture has accused Christians of being politically incorrect, unloving, and narrow-minded in their devotion to God and His Word. And the church has unwittingly played right along:

It has grown to have more in common with the world than with Christ
It seems more concerned about pleasing men than God
It sets aside the pursuit of eternal truth for the pursuit of temporal pleasures
How serious is the problem, and what are the solutions? What does a bravehearted kind of Christianity look like?

Eric presents the Christianity of the Bible as the most explosive, most vibrant, most extraordinary force on Earth—a force meant to bring glory to the Most High God and turn people's hearts in His direction. After reading The Bravehearted Gospel, no Christian will ever want to go back to "Christianity as usual"!

My thoughts:

I started reading this book and found it quite inspiring. I think it's what this lukewarm culture needs. For people who love non-fiction books about serious faith issues, this is a great one to read!

What intrigues me most about this book is the contemporary aspect. I believe that we as Christians have allowed too much of the world into our churches today. Church was never meant to be entertaining. I'd really love to win this book. Thanks for the give away.

Sounds like a book that was written to tell a story how it was intended and not shaped by values for today's "convenient views".

I couldn't agree more with what has been said so far! I'd love to read all that Ludy has to say. I get so tired of the church looking almost exactly like the world.

the part about "the church is too concerned with pleasing man rather than pleasing god" really struck a chord with me. My husband and I feel strongly about that, and are trying to change it. And didn't Eric write a book about dating with his wife? That was a really good book (even tho I cannot remember the title!) Thanks for the giveaway

Eric Ludy's description of Christians in today's world is pretty much accurate: unloving, and narrow-minded in their devotion to God and His Word, seeming more concerned about pleasing men than God and on and on.
What are the solutions? What DO we do?
I WANT to be explosive, vibrant, an extraordinary force on Earth—a force meant to bring glory to the Most High God and turn people's hearts in His direction.
Sounds like a great book for insight on how to turn around beginning HERE.
