An updated classic

July 25, 2010

” I Don’t want my image of God. I want God” C. S. Lewis

For many generations Christians have benefited spiritualy by reading sermons and although much has changed over the years in other areas this idea has not. In his book The Diety Formerley Known As GOD Jarrett Stevens successfully updates some of the ideas and spirit of the classic book by J.B. Phillips Your God Is Too Small. The book is well edited for reading but carries with it the power of good verbal communication. The chapters are personal, funny related to Biblical passages and themes and filled with application points. A discussion guide for small groups is a useful addition at the end. In addition to being a useful spiritual growth tool, any ony looking to see how to organize information for a talk to “20 somethings” will find it a pattern worth learning from and disceting. I enjoyed the book, learned from it personaly, took some illustration gems from it and now am recomending it to others!
