Please read Mere Churchianity. It’s the first and only book by Michael Spencer (“The Internet Monk”). Michael died of cancer a few weeks back.
BUY THIS BOOK. AND THEN READ IT. You will thank me.
Here’s what I wrote for the endorsement…
“Every Christian, regardless if they’re engaged in church or not, needs to read, discuss, and reread Mere Churchianity. Reading this book is like the best of Brennan Manning, Anne Lamott, and Philip Yancey all rolled into one literary experience. This is the best, most easily relatable book about following Jesus that I’ve read in at least ten years. What Michael left behind in words is nothing short of a gift.” —Matthew Paul Turner, author of Churched and Hear No Evil
Touchdown Jesus is no more. It burned down last night after being hit by lightning.
**UPDATE** There will be a second coming! Of “Touchdown Jesus.” Yep… the church’s electronic sign had a simple message flashing Tuesday – “He’ll Be Back”.
