5.0 out of 5 stars A, June 18, 2008
This review is from: The Everlasting Man (Paperback)
Chesterton uses an outline of the history of Western civilization to explain why the Christian world view is credible. C. S. Lewis credited this book with bringing him to Christ. If you're considering Christianity but have intellectual objections, or if you're a Christian wondering how to explain your faith to inquiring friends, you must read this book.

Chesterton himself was a Roman Catholic, but this book lies squarely in the mainstream of the Christian faith, as shared by Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, Evangelicals, and Pentecostals. For more on this common body of belief, read Lewis' book, Mere Christianity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-read for world changers, August 31, 2007
Like most of us, I have shelves groaning with books purporting to give me this tip or that key to making my church larger and healthier. A small percentage of those books recommend intense (e.g., 24-7) prayer. Of those, I believe Punk Monk to be the best.

In this book, British authors Andy Freeman and Pete Greig describe how God led them to establish a Christian community based on regular prayer. (That's the "breathing" part.) This group has grown to a worldwide network of "boiler rooms." (Visit [...] for a list of these communities.)

This book is a must-read for everyone who believes (along with John Wesley) that "God does nothing except in answer to prayer". If you want to see God change your church, and your world, read Punk Monk!

Yours aye in Christ,
