Item description for A Good Time to Be the Church by H. George Anderson...

"A good time to be the church is right now," declares Bishop H. George Anderson. Rather than lamenting the lost influence of the church or dreaming of some golden age, Christians can see the spiritual hunger of our time as a special opportunity to speak and act boldly. Solidly grounded in the Bible and Christian history, and keenly aware of contemporary issues, the Lutheran bishop identifies Christian truths that are especially needed in our time. He recalls his own spiritual journey and encourages readers to tell their faith stories. In an engaging question-and- answer format, Anderson helps readers clarify their own beliefs and discover ways to share the Christian faith with others. With questions for reflection and discussion, along with suggested prayers and hymns, this book is a stimulating study guide for congregations, church councils, evangelism committees, and other Christian groups.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Good Time to Be the Church?

Short but Sweet  Jul 26, 2006
You don't have to be Lutheran to appreciate some of the wonderful text in this tiny little book. Read it in an hour or two but then come back to all the dog-eared and underlined passages again and again. He has some cautionary remarks-"I suspect, lifestyle rather than religion is the organizing principle of most lives. They are not 'rooted in the gospel'; they are rooted in a social class or a lifestyle, and the gospel is an ornament they wear, like a gold cross around their neck"--but he also encourages: "Sharing the good news about Jesus is not a process of pouring my great faith into my faith-poor neighbor but rather discovering that my imperfect faith can be used by God in a way that will surprise me." Only 4 stars instead of 5, because I'd like to see a book like this, with study questions for small groups, include more biblical references to ponder in relation to his good thoughts.
Outstanding  Mar 31, 2000
Bishop Anderson does an outstanding job of talking about Christian faith today and puts things into a good context and offers great insight into the things the Church is doing, both good and bad. He also puts an emphasis on evangelism and spreading the message of God's love to all. It's a short book and a quick read, but it's worth reading for any follower of the Lord.
