The book consists of twelve chapters, written in a very clear and precise style. The structure of each chapter is entertaining and convincing, so that you do not realize when you've already read more than three chapters.
This is not a book with which you feel comfortable if you love things as they are, if you are someone who you love the anti-biblical and worldly trends, that many evangelical circles have adopted , this book is definitely not for you.
But if you want to be confronted to leave that area sinful comfort, this is the book you want.
Dr. John Barnes, introduces us to the condition of the current evangelicalism, its faults, its decline and solutions. This book is a tool that can help build up the church, and the believer.
I share with you some of the many phrases that caught my attention:
"God does not expect churches to make unbeliever's preferences a major principle of biblical worship"
"The Church shouldn't try to compete with the world's consumer mentality in order to attract people to services"
My Almost for His Highest, it is one of those books that can be termed as jewelry literature.
faith and the life that God intended for us to live as true Christians. Modern Christianity has distracted us in many ways from the basic truths of the Word of God. I recommend this book to anyone searching for a deeper walk with Christ.
