More Lost Than Found

Well to be honest, this book, More Lost Than Found, is quite interesting. I have never read a book by this particular author, Jared Herd, but needless to say it was quite an experience. As I read this book, I kind of had an awkward feeling. It was like I agreed on most of the stuff he was writing but then in a way felt uncomfortable and maybe even a little convicted about some stuff. For example where he said,

 “Somewhere along the way, Christians began to treat God as if he lives inside of churches and wants you to consume only things labeled Christians, but everywhere else in culture he is nonexistent.”

 He also said,

“There is the church we go to or the Christian stuff we participate in, and then there is the rest of our week.”

 It is a very challenging book but somewhere between chapters you become a little bored, tired, and ready to finish so you can say you are done. As I pointed out, it has some very good thoughts and I agreed with a lot of what this book said, but not all. I don’t agree with some of his theology. Maybe it’s the way he comes across, but to be honest, I would not take the time to read it again.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Book Sneeze book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
