#BookReview: Mere Churchianity by Michael Spencer

I don’t care who you are, where you are from, what you are doing, or what your religious or political beliefs are – you NEED to do yourself a favor and read this book.

The author is a former Southern Baptist preacher who one day woke up to the realization that perhaps much of what he had been taught and was teaching about Jesus was wrong. As he began his own journey to truly discovering Jesus and all the implications of Him, he stumbled across some dramatic discoveries that would shake him to the very core. He founded InternetMonk.com, where he began writing about this journey, and eventually wrote this book.

I literally wound up highlighting about half the book on my Kindle. It was THAT mind blowing.

Fair warning though: No matter your beliefs – and my own were relatively similar to the author’s going into the book – be prepared to be challenged, perhaps in ways you never considered. To me, that is perhaps the greatest value of this book.
