Many non-Christians find the behavior of some Christians off-putting rather than inviting. Many Christians do too Now Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz, authors of "Knowing the Bible 101, " take an unflinchingly honest and often humorous look at some believers' outlandish behavior. This candid assessment of the church will bridge the communication gap, empowering Christians to share their faith more freely and helping those who don't yet believe discover the truth about God without being distracted by...judgmental attitudes, hypocrisy, and condemnationconfusing mixtures of politics and the gospeldefensive positions in the "God vs. science" debateextreme teachings about prosperityunbalanced fixations on the end timesuninformed opinions about others' beliefsunprofessional Christian media and entertainment
This refreshing call to authentic Christianity will help Christians and non-Christians get past the peripheral issues and communicate openly and honestly about God.
