Reviews - What do customers think about Shaken, Not Stirred: Do Christianity and Drinking Mix??
A legalistic view of wine and the Bible Apr 15, 2008
I found the book to not only be poorly researched but also poorly written.The book takes a very legalistic view of Christians that believe it is okay to drink a glass of wine or drink a beer. The Bible has as much to say about drunkeness as it does about gluttony but it is quite a leap to think that God views drinking a glass of wine the same as He does getting drunk. I have to side with John MacArthur when he says there will be more people in hell because of legalism than alcoholism and a Christian needs to decide what they will do with the issue of drinking and how it will impact their witness for Christ. P.S. For the young man that killed Crystal in that tragic accident...I am thankful you came to Christ.
not what i was hoping for Aug 11, 2007
i was hoping for a book that would provide me with evidence and examples from the bible that would help me to decide for myself where i stood on christianity and drinking, but instead i felt that this book was too biased and provided the opinions of the author without supporting them with biblical evidence or making me believe that the author was interpreting what God intended for us. I was very disappointed by this purchase.
A Preacher with a backbone Nov 22, 2005
This book tells the truth. This book has provided all the information I will ever need to back up my statements that drinking is wrong. Until I read this book I was unable to combat some of the silly arguments I hear about the Bible and drinking. This book clearly shows the reasons a Christian shouldn't drink. It is clear that drinking is not an ambiguous issue in the Bible. Fisher does a great job presenting the facts. Very well done.
Review Shaken Not Stirred Sep 23, 2005
Finally, a preacher who isn't afraid of an off-limit subject in today's Church! If you want to keep believing in family traditions and "I think the Bible says" comments, then don't open this book. Truth is a powerful thing, and it won't be ignored. If you are a Christian and really want to know what God has to say about drinking, this book is a "must read." Fisher's honest and no-punches-pulled look at Christians and drinking will change the Church as we know it today, if we want to embrace the truth.
Shaken Not Strirred - 5 Star Review Sep 22, 2005
Fisher hits the nail on the head with this one. He gives a detailed fact based informative account of the devastating effects of alcohol. He masterfully uses scriptures, scientific facts, and common sense to outline how the church has dropped the ball on this important subject. This is a great read for Christians struggling with understanding what the Bible says about drinking alcohol. Most Christian writers avoid controversial issues but Dan Fisher has guts to deal with the truth.
