Item description for Being a Believer in an Unbelieving World: Contemporary Reflections on the Sermon on the Mount by Wayne Brouwer...
Overview Life seems to conspire against us, filling our days with busyness. Maybe we do it to ourselves out of need or fear, but the result is often the same_we become surface people, skating on the reflection pond without having or taking time to find depth of character. We live from event to event, from crisis to crisis, hoping no one will check our hearts for compassion and our minds for depth. In Being a Believer in an Unbelieving World, Wayne Brouwer urges us to listen more closely to the wisdom of Jesus and linger long enough before the mirror of the gospel to find the true shape of our selves. Then, under the gentle prodding of the One who cares, we can take new steps toward living life the way it was intended.

Reviews - What do customers think about Being a Believer in an Unbelieving World: Contemporary Reflections on the Sermon on the Mount?
More than "how to.." Oct 9, 2000
I really liked the way this book got into the substance of Christian living without becoming simplistic or listing "five easy steps" or "how to..." This is a really good book! I recommend it very highly. It has something of the flavor of Philip Yancey, but more engaging and less overtly intellectualistic.
Excellent Insights! Oct 7, 2000
This book is a goldmine of insights on Christian living and being authentic. I found the chapter on sexuality ("Beautiful Music on the Human Stereo") to be particularly helpful. You have to read this book!
