Adventures in Missing the Point: How the Culture-Controlled Church Neutered the Gospel | [Brian D. McLaren, Tony Campolo]

Adventures in Missing the Point: 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....

Publisher's Summary

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....

    "Adventures of Missing the Point"

    Have listen to the Missing the Point several times. The authors answer many questions the Church offers their interruptions of the Bible and the Disciples which leaves many on the fence in their faith. I would recommend this book to anyone .

    "Exceptional Content"

    These guys make their "points" and make this listenable to academia while making sure not to leave a lay audience behind.

    I feel like it would have been so much more had McClaren and Campolo narrated it--it lacks the enthusiasm I have found in their voices when they share their convictions.
