An annointed preacher Feb 19, 2009
Pastor Mark is an annointed preacher. We in his congregation are so blessed to have him share with us each week.
This book is a perfect opportunity for us to share him with the rest of the world! Those who aren't able to meet him or hear him, now at least can read him.
God speed, Mark.

Well rounded approach Aug 16, 2008
Mark's got a nice book here. He decides to take on every controversial issue known to Christendom in one book, and somehow pulls it off.
What he does exactly right is the structure of the book. The first section lays a fairly clever foundation for approaching spiritual issues. He draws on the likes of Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences to say that there is a spiritual intelligence that simply helps people live life better. He then names the four pillars on which Christian decision making are made: Scripture, Reason, Wise Counsel, and the Holy Spirit. Then he dives into everything from homosexuality to war, politics and money, other religions and hell.
The only weakness of the book is that he has a fundamentally and unquestioned modernist approach to the Scriptures. He asserts that every passage has only one interpretation (p 50) and that the author's original intention can be discerned, which begs the obvious questions about who subdivides the text and whether or not any of us have only one intention in the things we communicate, much less whether or not literary genres like parables can be constrained to single meanings. Given the foundation, American evangelicals carry the day on most of the issues.
The strength of the book is the voice. Brewer writes from his own experience with nearly every subject in here, and you can tell he's a Pastor who cares about people and about intellectual honesty. In this world, that combination is painfully unique and eagerly welcomed. So on that front, whether you agree with his conclusions or not, this is exactly the kind of book you want to use for conversation fodder. Books should be pretentious enough to make some grand assertions, or else they're not worth reading. But this book does so without a combative edge. So if you want a beginning point for discussions, lectures, or small groups on social issues, this is the place to begin.

How to Develop Spiritual Wisdom and Increase Spiritual Intelligence Aug 12, 2008
Dr. Mark Brewer asks the question, "What's Your Spiritual Quotient?" in his new book by the same title. Part I begins as a "spiritual primer" to help you, the reader, make wiser choices in your everyday lives. He provides guidance, insight, and instruction on how to use the four cornerstones of spiritual intelligence: Scripture, reason, wise counsel, and the inner voice of the Holy Spirit.
Part II introduces twenty of today's toughest questions dealing with issues including mercy killing, abortion, justified war, life relationships and living as salt and light in a free society. Dr. Brewer leads the way in helping the reader face difficult issues they are personally dealing with to help them make spiritually intelligent choices. I particularly appreciated Mark's sensitivity and compassion in recognizing the personal struggles we are all facing today.
In the final section of the book Dr. Brewer deals with discerning truth from error. Topics here include: ghosts, angels, and demons, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Mormonism. He discusses the reality of heaven and hell and challenges the reader to make the right choices and to make a difference in their world.
Dr. Mark Brewer is a gifted communicator. His writing is strong, bold, and refreshing. Lessons learned from this amazing collection of sage advice are drawn from the scriptures, as well as contemporary and Biblical illustrations. They bring the reader face to face with the question: "What's Your Spiritual Quotient?" and provide helpful answers on how to respond to life's toughest issues with Spiritual Intelligence. A great book - timely and relevant.
