8/21/14 - Revangelical by Lance Ford

Revangelical by Lance Ford

Lance Ford, in Revangelical, calls Christians to be re-evangelized.  To get back to how Jesus called us to live the Good News.  He has pointed out that “Evangelical Christians” have not been the Good News the World should be seeing.  When people look at Evangelicals, are they seeing Jesus?  This book will show you, in his opinion, how that should come to pass.

My toes were stepped on, that’s for sure; maybe not so much in a good, critical learning way, but sometimes in an offended way.  Ford, you can tell, doesn’t like conservative radio show hosts, TV hosts or I believe conservatives in general.  Most of the conservatives that he talks about don’t publicly profess Christianity.  I was disappointed in this aspect of the book.  I agree with him that we, as Christians, should be taking care of the poor and those looked down upon, like the homeless.  He wrote often of people that he knew that had started communities or moved into communities to help the underprivileged.  These “revangelicals” are living the gospel of Jesus.
His politics and mine may be different but when it all boils down we agree, we should have a heart like Jesus.

Should you become a Revangelical?  Absolutely! 

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
