Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Burns | 1/6/2014

    " One of those books you read a few times, such is the quality of Newbiggin's work here, and one you wish you could hand to every Christian. Yes, it's dense, and it's also THAT good. Great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Moore | 12/23/2013

    " I will probably need to reread the book or relisten to it to get the full value. A difficult book to follow completely in an audio format at least the first time through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timothy | 12/1/2013

    " Most of the great ideas from this book are develiped equally well or better in The Gospel in a Pluralist Society. Chapter 6 is excellent, but it was a labor of love to arrive there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Compton | 11/24/2013

    " Short and to the point. The first few chapters are a little academic and somewhat difficult to follow but the necessarily set the stage for the last few chapters with real application. This is a great read for Christians in the West. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Carter | 11/14/2013

    " An intelligent, concise explanation of who we are and why we are that way as "Western Culture." He has some stunning critiques and approaches faith in a passionate, yet incredibly thoughtful way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mgmaudlin | 9/2/2013

    " Just reread this. (Actually, I listened to it.) I wish more leaders and Christian authors shared Newbigin's wisdom and depth. This is a wonderful treatise on how to think about the faith in a modern context. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Circle of Hope Pastors | 6/15/2013

    " Good Bible study to help you change your mind about where you live and how to relate to those yet to follow Jesus. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph Pensak | 6/10/2013

    " Cultural apologetics at its best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 5/21/2013

    " Brilliant, relevant, radical. Read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zach | 11/21/2012

    " A must read as Christianity, and the Church at large, struggles to find it's identity in a post-enlightenment culture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Peters | 10/2/2012

    " Newbigen is brilliant and what he writes is really important. Unfortunately, he is also difficult to read. 5 stars for content, 2 stars for accessibility. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 9/23/2012

    " One of the best books I have ever read. Honestly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brant | 9/8/2012

    " Hope that the West can indeed be transformed once again by the Gospel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jp | 5/15/2012

    " A great book to help create a framework for sharing the Gospel with moderns and post-moderns. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luke Evans | 4/11/2012

    " This is very, very helpful and brilliant. 30 years old, but almost prophetic as a book. 5 stars. "
