Thanks to Adrianna for sending along this copy. I will be giving one away, when I post a review.
Call it burnout. Call it enlightenment. Call it whatever you like–it’s plaguing the contemporary church. Andrew Byers calls it cynicism–the state we all too easily arrive at after passing through disillusionment. Too many saints in the making are having their wings clipped in this painful process. But wait–there’s hope. Disillusionment is, at its heart, the dispersal of illusions, pointing us toward what’s really real–a great cloud of hopeful realists who have gone before us and welcome us into their number. There is a way beyond cynicism, and if we follow Jesus through it, we’ll find faith and life at their fullest.
Andy also blogs, which you can start by reading here.
