I am reading this for the second time. I admit that the first time I didn't get it, not because of the author or the writing, just me. Reading it again with a clearer understanding of what it means to be The Dangerous Kind. Great book, highly recommend.
Graeme gives us a glimpse of what it really means to transform our world for the Kingdom. I am excited for all that he spells out for us to be authentic and dangerous for Gods kingdom without being judgmental and damaging to those that the Father misses the most. It has taken me over 1 year to completely read through this book but it is so worth the read and deliberation.
I am reading this book for the second time. The first was to understand. Now I am reading it for my own personal transformation asking God to renew my mind through this amazing book. On of my favorite chapters is "Love: God's Gold Standard" On page 99, the first paragraph Sellers writes, "When his loves gets inside of us it must also get out of us. Love cannot be tamed. It cannot be trained to sit, stay, or play dead. It must be expressed; it has to find a way out, and true love always finds a way. Further in this paragraph Seller's writes, "...when love gets out of us and spills over a wounded world, we look remarkably like our Father." Well Just like Jesus said to His Father in the Gospel of John how He wanted us to love one another just as He and His Father loved one another. This Journey with Jesus is a Love Mystery that "The Dangerous Kind" calls me to even more. A must read.
If you are looking for a book that will make you feel good about your Christian walk, keep looking. If you are looking for simple five step recipe for improving your spiritual development, keep looking. If you have wondered if there is a kingdom purpose for your life in Christ, if you have wondered why the church today seems impotent, buy and read this book.
This is a serious and needed call to arms for the individual and the church. Starting with a solid foundation of scripture, Sellers deftly and concisely builds the case for Christians to do more than rest comfortably in the knowledge of their salvation. We are, like Jesus, to be on the front lines against the enemy of our souls. We are meant to be the dangerous kind.
Take your time reading this book; it is densely packed with important truths. You will be challenged but you will also be encouraged. Don't be surprised if God uses this book to minister to you and open you to a deeper and more intimate life with him.

We humans have an instinct for coping with threat: fight or flight we call it. We run when our opponent seems invincible; we rumble when we think we can win. In his book, "The Dangerous Kind" Graeme Sellers contends that Jesus-followers too often forget their advantage and bolt in the heat of battle when we should stand and fight. And how do we fight this good fight? We step up into the danger with right and holy living, remembering that the battle is already won, that we, having already died with our Lord we now have nothing to fear. Instead, we can go on offense and flip the tables on our spiritual foes. Sellers challenges us to throw caution to the wind, step up and step out in a life of adventure and faith.
