BOOK REVIEW: Subversive Kingdom

Do you ever wonder what life as a child of God is REALLY supposed to be like?  Is life in Christ stale and ho-hum?  Should it really be all about becoming a Christian, going to church, and that's it?  In his new book Subversive Kingdom, Mr. Ed Stetzer takes a look at what Christians are really supposed to be doing with their lives.  And that's not living with a get out of hell free card and doing nothing else.

Subversive Kingdom is divided into three sections: Part I - A Subversive Way of Thinking, Part II - A Subversive Way of Life, and Part III - A Subversive Plan of Action.  As Christians, we are supposed to be representatives (ambassadors) of Christ. We are supposed to go out and share the gospel, the good news of salvation.  We are supposed to help those who need help, give of our time, talents, etc.  However, we are supposed to do those things BECAUSE we are Christians, not in order to BECOME Christians.  Our lifestyles should reflect our great joy and thankfulness of what the Savior has done for us.  We should be attracting others to Christ with the way we live -- not just on Sundays!  Can a person tell you are really a Christian by your actions?

Mr. Stetzer puts forth his answers in a very interesting, thought provoking format.  It is not a deeply theological book, in other words, everyone can read and understand this book.  And yes, I was convicted.  Now, what am I going to do about it?

I recommend this book to ALL Christians, whether or not we want to follow what this book teaches.  It may help us change our minds about our lives in Christ, our ambassadorship here on earth, and our outreach for souls.
