This is a very interesting book about the compromises Liberal Christianity has made attempting to adapt to the 21st Century Western capitalist/consumerist/globalist culture, why those compromises compromise Christian belief, and what the answers should be if Christianity if to reassert its values and commitment to the reign of God against what has become an agnostic or even atheistic Christendom. There are shades of Kierkegaard here. Christianity has debased its altruistic faith commitment to God in a self-interested aesthetic search for growth at any cost. It’s almost a Book of Jeremiah for our 21st Century, yet unlike Jeremiah, Dr. Lockhart adopts an at times light and humorous tone that makes his book both very readable and captivating. It is a very interesting and entertaining treatment of a timely prophetic topic and I highly recommend it.
A fantastic read on our Cascadian culture! Ross nails our love of weak cultural Christianity and opens us to the possibility of a more robust faith. And...he’s hilarious. It’s a great adventure and worth your time.
