Written by two Australian men who both emigrated to the United States and became pastors in two very different American Churches, Rumors of God is a bit like a few other books I've read this year, such as [...] by David Platt. Both books challenge mainstream Christian culture to rise above the level of complacent, cultural church-ianity and live a life that is truly worthy of the radical, life-changing Gospel.
Comparing Rumors of God to other books isn't to say that it's unoriginal or lesser in anyway. I thought Radical was amazing. I loved this book, too. Their approaches are slightly different, but their message is the same. What I really liked about Rumors of God is how real these guys are - their stories help illustrate the points they discuss.
I highly recommend this book. You'll walk away challenged and inspired, wanting to live a different kind of faith that really makes a difference.

Buy it, read it...and join the movement where God is no longer a rumor, but actively at work in your life!!!
Each chapter in Rumors of God takes on a different "rumored" theme (rumors of grace, rumors of generosity, etc.) and is developed following a pattern familiar to those who have read other "Christian living" books: a personal story supported by a scriptural illustration and concluding with a clear and simple application. Since the structure and flow of each chapter is similar, the book read like a collection of standalone stories or sermons connected by common language and style pointing towards the real potential for the Christian faith to transform lives and be good news to the world around us.
I enjoyed reading Rumors of God; it was a quick, light read with interesting stories, but, for me, it didn't rock the boat or change any paradigms of my thinking. This could be a good resource for someone who's struggling with (or at an early stage of) faith or been hurt by churches.
Disclosure of material connection in compliance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: I received a copy of this book for review, though the opinions I have expressed are my own.
