True Religion: Book Review

About The Book:

Give your life away to change this world and God will change you for the best.

A rising voice in the missional movement, Palmer Chinchen challenges Christians to a new kind of spiritual formation-one focused on pouring out our life for others and radical dependence upon God.

When we get out of our comfort zone, our souls are awakened-everything seems more alive and vibrant. So why don't we live our faith that way? Why is it that our faith can easily become an old, tired routine instead of an exhilarating, God-honoring lifestyle? Discover why true religion involves engaging the problems in our world as we go with the good news of the gospel. And in the process of pouring ourselves out for others, we'll see God radically transform our own hearts as well.

About The Author:

Palmer Chinchen is a popular speaker, an author, and the pastor of The Grove in Chandler, Arizona. He grew up in Liberia, West Africa, witnessing firsthand the ravaging pain of the AIDS and malaria pandemics and the daily burden of poverty. A former college ministry leader, Palmer has a passion for firing up Christians to respond to affliction and injustice in the world and respond with Christ's love to a hurting world. Palmer holds a PhD from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Illinois and a BA and MA from Biola University in California.


My Review:

True Religion is a well written book that will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and do something for the world around you. You will be convicted to help those who are "living a hell on earth". As Christians we are leave our mark on the world to bring Jesus to it. True Religion gives the reader the encouragement to do so!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
