One of the best books I have read thus far this year, a recommendation from a trusted friend and scholar, is Ross Douthat’s Bad Religion: How We Became A Nation of Heretics.
Some of my favorite quotes can be found on my Instagram account. Who knew that a truly fair and balanced assessment of Western Christianity could come from a New York Times Op-Ed Columnist of all people. The author moves beyond over-simplistic labels such as red and blue states, conservative and progressive, evangelical and mainline… rather he takes a historical (and hard) look at at the American tendency to worship self rather than a Savior.
Pick up a copy and let me know what you think!
