Spirituality for the Rest of Us Mar 5, 2010
Our Sunday School class is using this in our class and are really enjoying the discussion that Larry Osborne stimulates. Larry was in the High School group at our church so it is a delight to use his book as we know his parents well. Great book. I recommend it for anyone on their spiritual journey.
A Great Book Under a New Name Aug 3, 2009
I read "Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God" and loved it. I got a copy for my pastor, and he loved it, too. The book forced me to rethink so many things I had grown up just assuming were true, because that's how I was taught. I've been following Larry Osborne's blog, too, and appreciate what he has to say. I've quoted him a few times on my blog.
So when I saw that Larry Osborne had another book, "Spirituality for the Rest of Us," I ordered it on this site. It arrived today. Browsing through the table of contents, I realized it was the exact same book as "A Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God," except that they threw in some study questions. Even in all the tributes from Christian leaders, they substituted this new book name for the previous one. Buying on this site, I didn't notice the note on the cover and copyright page saying this book was previously published as "A Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God."
So I unknowingly bought a third copy of this book. I'll give it away, and somebody will profit from it. But is it really necessary to change the title of a book that's only been out two years?
Spirituality that Makes Sense Jul 16, 2009
This book is a must read. You'll read through it and discover that Osborne is verbalizing many things you hadn't before because you'd been taught to believe otherwise. Osborne does a great job of stripping American culture away from Scripture and getting back to its original intend. Great read and very freeing.
Good book May 16, 2009
This is the same book as "A Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God" by the same author. They added questions at the end of each chapter so you can use it for a group discussion. (They were formerly available online). It's not as good of paper as the first book, but the information makes up for it. I found this book to be a refreshing look at having a relationship with Christ if you're not wired to journal, read theology every day, and pray for hours. The book addresses the fact that most Christian books are written by bookworms, and therefore see everything from that perspective. I, being an artistic ADD type (some might call me "flaky":) who loves Jesus Christ was encouraged to know I wasn't alone. My faith is legitimate as those who are wired to be scholars. If you're a bookworm, I'd recommend the reading to see how the other half thinks.
