Making the Church a Kinder Place
I love my husband for lots of reasons. He’s stinkin’ handsome. Mountain manly. And he adores our children. Aside from that, he lets me ride. And never says a thing about my excessive candle addiction.
And I’m proud of my husband. He’s got a doctorate. Founded and pastors our church, Austin Christian Fellowship ~ and he writes books. Lots of them. Though I was the first to publish a book in our family, he is beating me hands down on the author thing.
His most recent is called: 10 Things Jesus Never Said: And Why You Should Stop Believing Them
And that brings me to one more reason why I love him and am proud of him.
His book was reviewed this month in Christianity Today and this is what reviewer Phillip Carey said: “If Davis gets his way, the church would be a kinder place, one not so apt to wound people.”
… tear. I couldn’t be happier or prouder of Will. Writing a book that brings out the best in us. Exposing theology that brings out the best in the Church.
Gosh, I love that man.
Enough gush. You get my drift. Now, may I suggest you get the book?
If you’ve ever struggled with guilt and shame. If you’ve ever felt God just might be fed up with you, then this book is for you. It will show you how to replace a pervasive theology of failure ~ with the truth about how Jesus really feels about you.
And whether you buy it or not. Know this … Jesus never said:
- “If you really loved me, you’d try harder.”
- “I’m so disappointed in you.”
- “I can’t believe you call yourself a Christian.”
Stop believing the lies and start believing the truth. And then watch out world … cause the Church will be a much kinder place.
Do I hear an amen?
