Boundless: A Book Review

About The Book:

Discover a more expansive way to follow Jesus
In his many travels as a researcher for Youth With A Mission, Bryan Bishop has discovered a startling phenomenon: hidden movements of Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and others who are experiencing and following Jesus outside the boundaries of traditional Western Christianity. Through colorful firsthand accounts, Bishop explains how these fresh expressions of faith can revitalize our own. 

If you want to grow in areas where you feel stagnant or disillusioned, if you are concerned about friends who have left the church behind, or if you chafe against Christianity's European-American cultural box, you will find in this book a liberating view of what it looks like to follow Christ.

About The Author:

My Review:

A really great book to discover how the church works around the world! Well written and I loved the first hand reports from the author and all he has experienced in his mission work. I love that what we think about how God works in North America is so vastly different around the world, and I loved realizing that. The book reminds us that learning about other cultures and religions is a way that helps to connect to the world around us. It shows us that God transcends all religion and brings people to Him from all walks of life. It provided me with a lot of new insights and was very thought provoking. It was a humble read and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to read it. 

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