Read full description of the books:I am still mulling this book over. I agreed with much that she had to say about how the church is becoming numb to sin within its midst. We don't want to hurt others feelings or appear judgmental so we let ungodly behaviors slide. And yes, the book was very convicting at times. However, I didn't care for how she singled out certain behaviors that are not sinful but are in that area of "be careful with these things because you don't want to cause others to stumble."
She clearly has issues with entertainment and drinking. She quoted in a positive light one lady that admonished her bible study group for attending rated R movies. Yes, I agree that some rated R movies are nothing but trash and do nothing for us spiritually. BUT, there are some rated R movies that tell incredible stories that should not be missed just because of the reality of the world that is portrayed. Good grief, if they made an accurate movie of the Bible, all that happens in the first half of Genesis alone would earn it an R rating. It just seemed that she was advocating the "holier-than-thou" tests that many churches thrived on (and maybe still do)...no drinking, no dancing, no movies, etc. Those restrictions just seem to lead to a self-righteousness that benefits no one and does not lead them toward holiness. As one that wants to see a better balance of extending grace and reaching for holiness in my life and in my church, this book did not bring me any closer to understanding how to strive for that balance.
I might be completely off the mark, because everyone else seems to love the book and it was well-reviewed by respected leaders in the church. But it just kind of left me unsettled. And maybe that is good.
