This book is one of those love/hate relationships for me. Each chapter is a different topic and review of a popular Chritian book or trend. You either agree wholeheartedly or walk away a bit snapped at. The author(s) try to why that particular topic doesn't jive with the Bible (such as Rick

Warren's Purpose Driven Life; Eldridge's Wild at Heart; Revolve Magazine as well as trends like altar calls, praise music and consumerism). Although I agreed with a majority of the concepts that the essays presented, I must admit that many of them were a bit of a buzzkill and a bit harsh (but not rude). I appreciated the opinion and explanation of the topic and really liked the book overall. If you want a simple go-lucky read, skip this one BUT you will be missing some great 'discussions' on some fairly important topics of modern trends and how they reconcile (or don't) with the Bible.

This book makes me angry... at everybody. Is there anything good?
