Summary Book Review Everything You Know about Evangelicals Is Wrong (Well, Almost Everything) by Steve Wilkens:
Download or read book Everything You Know about Evangelicals Is Wrong (Well, Almost Everything) written by Steve Wilkens and published by Baker Books. This book was released on 2010-08-01 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While evangelicals make up a significant portion of American society, they still constitute a mystery for many. They exert considerable influence on virtually every aspect of American life and culture, yet by those who don't appreciate them they're seen as rednecks, crypto-fundamentalists, and people without education. Wilkens and Thorsen contend that evangelicals are tired of being caricatured and provide an insider's look at myths and realities surrounding the movement. They winsomely and sometimes humorously assess the breadth and depth of evangelical beliefs, values, and practices, arguing that evangelicalism is identifiable by a family resemblance, vitality, and relevance that transcends particular theological and political stereotypes that arise inside as well as outside of it. The book provides a synthetic presentation of contemporary evangelical Christianity as well as critiques of it.

Summary Book Review The Evangelical’s Daughter by Debra Roberts Torres-Reyes:
Download or read book The Evangelical’s Daughter written by Debra Roberts Torres-Reyes and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2017-02-21 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One day, Frankie Roberts hears a preacher pronounce that a woman’s place is in the home, not in the pulpit. But this mother of four daughters and wife of a pastor in New Jersey won’t hear of it; she knows she has a special calling. In 1959, Frankie packs up her children, leaves her husband, and moves to Sioux City, Iowa, to start a ministry. In this memoir, one of Frankie’s daughters, the author Debra Roberts Torres-Reyes narrates her mother’s story. Availing herself of both humor and honesty, Torres-Reyes describes being raised by Pentecostal Holiness Ministers and living with a fanatical preacher mother who inflicts both physical and verbal abuse on her offspring. The author reflects on how the church’s views and actions—speaking in tongues, casting out demons, and dancing in the spirit—caused her to grow up with poor self-esteem, to suffer panic attacks, and to live in constant mental and emotional torment about The Rapture, demons, the devil, and hell. The Evangelical’s Daughter describes how Torres-Reyes ultimately breaks out of a self-destructive lifestyle, joins the military, and later attends college and law school, finally becoming an attorney. This is one woman’s true story about finding God and leaving religious dogma behind.

Summary Book Review The Profit Book One by Richard David Kennedy:
Download or read book The Profit Book One written by Richard David Kennedy and published by Lulu Press, Inc. This book was released on 2014-12-23 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What do you get when you take a failed novelist, a capricious “alien,” a world renowned– but debauched evangelist, an alcoholic estate manager and mix them together with a half dozen other eccentric characters? What you get is distinctly different cocktail called THE PROFIT that you won’t be able to order at a bar anywhere. The plot is a riddle in an enigma that is so well-woven and imaginative it’s almost too simple to understand. The content is mature, intended for adults who are discerning readers who enjoy fine, avant-garde literature and bristling social satire, particularly about evangelists and their followers, and should be appreciated by atheists, agnostics and the devoutly religious alike who have open minds. The reader is sure to be as "captivated" as is the Writerman in the book in this most exquisite of his offerings. “Born to write, ranking beside any great author in the world today. A brilliant writer who will take you on a journey you will never forget." K. Chandler, Melbourne, Australia 2000

Summary Book Review Rescuing Jesus by Deborah Jian Lee:
Download or read book Rescuing Jesus written by Deborah Jian Lee and published by Beacon Press. This book was released on 2015-11-10 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An inside look at the young, diverse, and progressive Christians who are transforming the evangelical movement Deborah Jian Lee left the evangelical world because she was frustrated by its conservative politics. But over the years, she noticed how evangelical culture and politics were changing—and moving in a more progressive direction. What Lee came to find is that most of what we think we know about evangelicals is wrong, or is well on its way to becoming dated. In Rescuing Jesus, she ventures into the world of progressive evangelicalism, telling the stories of those at the forefront of a movement that could change the face and the substance of religion in the United States. These men and women are a young and diverse array of people—LGBTQ and straight; white, black, Asian, Hispanic, and indigenous—who are working to wrest political power away from conservatives. These young evangelicals are more likely than their elders to accept same-sex marriage, more inclined to think of “pro-life” issues as being about supporting society’s disenfranchised, and more accepting of equality between men and women. With empathy, journalistic rigor, and powerful storytelling, Lee unpacks the diverse and complex strands of this movement—and what it means for the rest of us. Given the clout that evangelicals still hold in national politics, Lee argues, this movement is important not only for the future of evangelicalism but also for the future of our country.
