I probably got the most out of the chapters on Materialism, Hedonism, and the Church and the Lords Day. The Church on the Lords Day I will speak of as I personally know of some christians who believe its okay not to attend church, to have a church service by themselves in the mountains, to have a church service in front of the TV, etc.. All these excuses not to attend and take part in the Lords day are wrong and unbiblical. As Pilgrims in an unholy land we are to set apart a day of worship. We are also not to create church service to attract consumers and seekers, but to create a worship service that honors the savior and risen Lord. The major downfall of the seeker friendly movement is their consumeristic and pragmatistic view of worship. Hughes argues from scripture and rebuffs those that think of the LORDS day as something else. Sadly many that disagree will not even read this book, as they are more interested in itching their deaf ears than obeying the Bible. Overall a great book, go buy yourself a copy.
