I can't imagine any Christian reading this book and not feeling challenged. Campolo does a great job of pointing out the many things that Christians do that almost certainly embarrass God, but he doesn't stop there. Along with showing some ways Christians probably shouldn't act, he gives some very practical guidelines for how we should act. It hits a little close to home sometimes, but who said we're supposed to be comfortable all the time?
This guy seems to have implied that he authored the Shel Silverstein poem "Listen to the Musn'ts" in one of his lectures to a youth event. That's the way it seemed to me. Nontheless he stands out as a moderate in a sea of right-wing fundamentalists. I credit him with that much. "We've met the enemy and they are partly right" was a great book.
Mr. Campolo did a decent job with this book. It is a generally thought-provoking and insightful look into accepted Christian behaviors and attitudes. Perfect for book studies, the chapters are easy to discuss out of sequence and are great for one-hour sessions!
