On our inaugural episode of the Too Many Books podcast we review "Letters to the Church" by Francis Chan. Join hosts Jack and Jack as they discuss their likes and dislikes of the book as well as whether or not you should read this book right now.
"You can't shape the life of your church around who might leave if things start to feel too much like the New Testament."
"I honestly believe we in the American Church need to get on our knees and repent of our condescending attitudes toward God's Holy Spirit. We have read Scripture's clear statements about the Spirit manifesting Himself through every Christian, but we've decided we know better, these people aren't ready for anything serious, and it will be more effective if the talented few do all the heavy lifting."
"Should we consider that placing people in comfortable classrooms and auditoriums for years may not be the best way to train fearless leaders?"
