Reviews - What do customers think about Following Jesus Without Embarrassing God?
Amazing Insight Jan 9, 2007
For all those folks who are tried of the garbage that relgious dogma spouts, Campolo gives a fresh look at subjects that have deep meaning for the individual and give practical application for the life of the individual and the church. It is a great look at cultural Christianity and its flaws.
Interesting thoughts on accepted behaviors Dec 11, 2002
Mr. Campolo did a decent job with this book. It is a generally thought-provoking and insightful look into accepted Christian behaviors and attitudes. Perfect for book studies, the chapters are easy to discuss out of sequence and are great for one-hour sessions!

This guy seems to have implied that he authored the Shel Silverstein poem "Listen to the Musn'ts" in one of his lectures to a youth event. That's the way it seemed to me.
Nontheless he stands out as a moderate in a sea of right-wing fundamentalists. I credit him with that much.
"We've met the enemy and they are partly right" was a great book.
A Must Read for Christians Aug 7, 2000
I can't imagine any Christian reading this book and not feeling challenged. Campolo does a great job of pointing out the many things that Christians do that almost certainly embarrass God, but he doesn't stop there. Along with showing some ways Christians probably shouldn't act, he gives some very practical guidelines for how we should act. It hits a little close to home sometimes, but who said we're supposed to be comfortable all the time?
This book will give you freedom to be a real Christian! Oct 4, 1999
This is one of the most straight forward, honest, real looks at the church,christianity and life I have ever read. It made me laugh, cry, and review my perspectives on life.
