Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Liberal evangelicals McLaren and Campolo assert that Christian faith is being affected because of today's culture-controlled church and believers are missing the point regarding important issues. They invite readers on a journey to uncover and name faulty conclusions, suppositions, and assumptions about the Christian faith.

Synopsis:

There is a stirring among churchgoers. Many are looking at how the Christian faith is being played out, wondering if somehow we're missing the point. What if there is more to our faith than just getting our souls into heaven? What if there is a power in the gospel that's been kept under lock and key because of our culture-controlled church? If we placed our beliefs and their origins under the microscope, what would we see?

Synopsis:

How the Culture-Controlled Church Neutered the Gospel

If you're brave enough to take an honest look at the issues facing the culture-controlled church--and the issues in your own life--read on. Do you ever look at how the Christian faith is being lived out in the new millennium and wonder if we're not doing what we're supposed to be doing? That we still haven't quite "gotten it"? That we've missed the point regarding many important issues? It's understandable if we've relied on what we've been told to believe or what's widely accepted by the Christian community. But if we truly turned a constructive, critical eye toward our beliefs and vigorously questioned them and their origins, where would we find ourselves?

Best-selling authors Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo invite you to do just that. Join them on an adventure--one that's about uncovering and naming faulty

conclusions, suppositions, and assumptions about the Christian faith. In Adventures in Missing the Point, the authors take turns addressing how we've missed the point on crucial topics such as: salvation, the Bible, being postmodern, worship, homosexuality, truth, and many more.
