BREWright.jpgI’ve got a new book sitting here that will be a dynamic book to read and blog about. It’s by one of my favorite bloggers who has written what I think is one of the most encouraging and myth-busting books of the last two decades. The book is by Bradley R.E. Wright, he’s a professor at the University of Connecticut where he teaches sociology. 

Wright’s book is called: Christians Are Hate-Filled Hypocrites…and Other Lies You’ve Been Told: A Sociologist Shatters Myths From the Secular and Christian Media
I’ve been following Brad’s work for some time, and I’m thrilled about this book. So thrilled I wrote this blurb:
Buy this book and read it carefully. Then buy one more and give it to your best friend and ask that person to do the same thing. I hope this book goes viral because it shows that there’s lots of good news when it comes to the condition of the Church in the West.

Thursday we will begin a series on this book, and I hope you get this book, read it carefully and join in the conversation of myth-busting. Which myths? He’s got nine myths to bust and we’ll get to them Thursday.

The book has significant endorsements: Christian Smith, Rodney Stark, Philip Jenkins and Mark Regnerus. The book is rooted in rock-solid social-scientific data.
