Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 2/19/2014

    " Wow. A book challenging our too-safe, too-predictable rut of Christianity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy C | 2/17/2014

    " WOW! It scratched where I itched. Too often I fall into a faith funk. This book calls me away from re-creating God in my image, but to see the true God as He really is. He is not safe or controlled makes no petty promises of A+B will always = C, does not promise a nice comfortable, complacent, consumer christianity, but a real God who can take on real life, in a real way. A MUST READ! I'm onto HOly Wild next.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MJ | 2/7/2014

    " Currently reading this as part of a book study with some coworkers. Very intriguing, sparks lots of good conversation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 2/1/2014

    " If you're looking for a book that summarizes the reality of a Christian walk, then this is the go-to book. I don't know that you could read this book and be unmoved if you're being honest with yourself. If you've got you act entirely together, this book will still challenge you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cale | 1/27/2014

    " Read it during a time of a spiritual funk and it was fantastic. He writes unlike any other Christian devotional author and that helps a lot. His insights change the way you see things spiritually. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JM | 1/19/2014

    " Awesome read! I like Buchanan's matter-of-fact speak of how much Christians pigeon-hole God into their own image. The metaphor of "borderland" will always be with me. I absolutely loved this book. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking to re-evaluate their faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 1/12/2014

    " One of my favorites! Great insights. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/8/2013

    " Can you accept and honor a seemingly unpredictable God, who doesn't always give you what you want? Excellent book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryana Johnson | 11/11/2013

    " Buchanan offers a stirring and wrenching, honest but eloquent call to meet God in the holy wild. You need to read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlene | 11/3/2013

    " Hands down the best book I've read. It challenges you and it changes you and how you think about religion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/10/2013

    " Love this book. It was one of those that I read and thought, "now this is the God that I know!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodger | 6/6/2012

    " Learn about serving a God who has more in mind than your comfort and safety. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melvin | 3/27/2012

    " This is going to kick you in the teeth. Good stuff "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Val | 12/3/2011

    " Great book! Challenging...worth a second read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 6/23/2011

    " This book is a pretty good overall wide general challenge to your Christian lifestile and how to avoid getting stuck in a faith rut. At the same time the tone is nonjudgemental or threatening and the book is quite easy to follow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 4/10/2011

    " God does not fit in our box - he is scary but he is safe (to quote Lewis in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe). This book will refresh stale faith, challenge long-held beliefs and make you think like you've never thought about God and the church whilst never disrespecting both. Read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/31/2011

    " Love this book so much! One I want to read again and again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle Murray | 1/2/2011

    " This book took me to a new place - challenged my perception of what it means to follow God and how he challenges me to risk it all "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Campbell | 12/12/2010

    " Inspirational, motivational, and used by God in my life! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Wilson | 12/8/2010

    " One of my new favorites? His insights into life in the "borderland" are profound, his counsel is simple yet powerful, and his prose is rich and vivid. "
