Neighbors and Wise Men book review

http://booksneeze.com/art/_140_245_Book.697.cover.jpg


This book is written by Tony Kriz. It's a paperback book that reads fairly simple. It's easy to understand, and there isn't a lot of confusing terms or drawn out paragraphs. It's simply put and doesn't read like stereo instructions.



Book Description

God can work through ANY person to make himself known.
There is an ancient prayer that begs God to “Be in the heart of each to whom I speak, be in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.”
Have we limited God’s ability to speak in our world today? Have we relegated God’s creative voice to the select persons who share our particular religious system?
One of the most often stated issues with Christianity is its unsatisfying answer to the question about those “outside” the faith. We have all known people who are kinder than most Christians, purer than most Christians, seemingly more connected to God than most Christians and spiritually wise.
Tony Kriz, who infamously appeared in Donald Miller’s books under the name “Tony the Beat Poet” has discovered the abiding presence of Jesus in the lives and words of people from diverse (and often radically unchristian) sources.
Through the pages of this book, Tony guides the reader through Muslim lands, radically anti-religious academia and post-Christian cultures to discover a God who speaks with generosity and creativity.
Kriz himself felt like he was falling out of faith until the most unexpected people were the ones who encouraged him to “Fall toward Christ.”

I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone.

I did not receive any financial compensation for this review. I did, however, receive a free copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.
