Unparalleled: A Book Review

About The Book:

Aren't all religions basically the same?That's a popular notion these days. It's also a convenient way to avoid the ultimate questions we all must answer. If all religions are the same, then there's no reason to choose one over another beyond what fits into our already busy lives or what suits our particular tastes. But what if that assumption is fundamentally flawed? What if Christianity is not merely one among many similar options? What if it is categorically different? Wouldn't that fact alone make it worth another look?

In Unparalleled, Jared C. Wilson reveals how Christianity alone answers the deepest longings of every human heart, compelling us to take a second look and to consider the Christian faith in a drastically new light.

One of these things is not like the others. And the difference matters--for eternity.

About The Author:

Jared C. Wilson is the director of content strategy for Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and managing editor of For the Church, Midwestern's new site for gospel-centered resources. He is the author of several books, including Your Jesus Is Too SafeThe Storytelling GodThe Prodigal Church, andGospel Wakefulness. His writing has appeared in TabletalkRev! magazine, Exponential'sLeadership LearningsPulpit Helps magazine, and numerous other publications. His blog, The Gospel-Driven Church, is hosted by the Gospel Coalition and he speaks at numerous churches and conferences throughout the year. Wilson lives in Kansas City.

My Review:

I have only heard of Jared C. Wilson based on his blog and via Facebook, but was very intrigued and excited to read Unparalled. While the book is heavy in the topic (comparison of Christianity to other major world religions) it is written in a very easy to read and comprehend fashion. I would say it would be a grade 12 and older comprehension level. It would be a great book to read in a small group setting and I am sure will evoke a lot of discussion. This would be a great book to learn more about theology and doctrine because it is done in a non-threatening, every day manner and is very well written. 

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