UnChristian worth reading...

I'm reading UnChristian, by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons.

The book's aim is to report on young adult hostility toward Christianity in America. It is a very convicting book. I hope you'll read it if you are a believer. You will, if you have an open mind, hear the truth and change your ways (much like I called for in my earlier
'Tolerance please...' post).

Here's a quote from UnChristian...

"One of the surprising insights from our research is that the growing hostility toward Christians is very much a reflection of what outsiders feel they receive from believers. They say their aggression simply matches the oversized opinions and egos of Christians. One outsider put it htis way: 'Most people I meet assume that Christian means very conservative, entrenched in their thinking, antigay, antichoice, angry, violent, illogical, empire builders; they want to convert everyone, and they generally cannot live peacefully with anyone who doesn't believe what they believe." (page 26)
