This book is a call to revival. (back cover) It is time to quit playing church. The author exhorts modern-day clergy to be prophets instead of puppets, orgonizers instead of organizer. In spite of this age of mass communication, he says we are failing to save the contented from the curse of compromise, imitation, and professionalism.
(FROM BACK COVER) The Bible does not present what we traditionally refer to as a "list of priorities". Instead, it emphasizes our significant relationships and our responsibilities in those relationships. Our responsibility is to know what God expect of us in these important areas and to arrange our lives to do it according to His will and thus His glofy."
Chuck Colson, in his unique style of story-telling and contemporary insight, begins this book with the 9/11 tragedy. He goes into how the church many times failed to meet the needs of people seeking for answers at that time. It is stressed in the book that the church is not so much a building but a body of believers. It is not surprising that today the world tries to model the church into its own mold at an alarming rate. Colson and Vaughn have given a clear picture of the way God would mold the church in the image of his Son.
For me this book was easy reading, eye opening and challenging.
This book is a biblical emphasis on forgiveness. This isn't the best book I've read on forgiveness. However, it has some thought provoking sections. In the "Caring Enough to Forgive" section it talks about releasing the Past. I can choose to release it - let it go. If I don't the power it has over me and how it affects me personally. The section on "Caring Enough to Not Forgive" talks about times when its better not to forgive. I talks about counterfeits of forgiveness (sweet, saintly revenge - distorted feelings, etc.)
