    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. The concepts are good. However, the examples he uses are outdated. References to things like excite and the palm pilot leave me wishing the examples were more timely.

  • The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life in God

    Story
    (6)

    In an era when many Christians consider Jesus a beloved but remote savior, Willard argues compellingly for the relevance of God to every aspect of our existence. Christians, Willard says, for the most part consider the primary function of Christianity to be admittance to heaven. But, as Willard clearly shows, a faith that guarantees a satisfactory afterlife, yet has absolutely no impact on life in the here and now, is nothing more than "consumer Christianity" and "bumper-sticker faith".

    Ronald says: "Great advice about your Christian walk"
    "good content poorly read"
    Overall

    It was a good book, but some authors should NOT read their own book. Dallas has an even tone/reading style that didn't capture and keep my attention. The writing style of the book was more like reading classic literature...not as clear or direct as I would have preferred.

  • When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor...and Yourself

    Story

    Churches and individual Christians typically have faulty assumptions about the causes of poverty, resulting in the use of strategies that do considerable harm to poor people and themselves. When Helping Hurts provides foundational concepts, clearly articulated general principles and relevant applications. The result is an effective and holistic ministry to the poor, not a truncated gospel.

    Carrara says: "Amazing, practical book"
    "Not convincing"
    Overall

    Brian has some good ideas, but in my opinion he didn't present a very convincing argument for his premise. Jesus said if someone asks for something, then give it. He didn't say "find out if they have a family or church that can assist them first". Brian suggests we often hurt the poor when we give, but didnt back up his assertions with compelling evidence.
