Book Review: Revangelical

Becoming the Good News People We're Meant to Be
By Lance Ford 

When you hear the word Evangelical do you think "Good News"? That's what the word means, and it's what we're meant to be. Yet too often, it's not how others see us. Do you ever say you're an evangelical Christian and see others immediately grow defensive? Do they assume you're judgmental or angry; do they make assumptions about your beliefs, your intelligence, or your politics?  When people look at us, do they see the Jesus we claim to love? 

Lance Ford has learned firsthand the critical importance of rediscovering what it means to live the Good News. In this groundbreaking book, he calls us as Christians to be re-evangelized - to realign our hearts with the things that most concerned Jesus. To transcend the culture wars and get back to the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven. To joyfully live the gospel in such a way that the surrounding culture will have no choice but to recognize us as Good News people. In Revangelical, Ford offers inspiring glimpses of a life-changing, church stirring movement and shares hope filled stories of evangelicals who are living out the Good News. The evangelicals are changing the world. Are you ready to join them?

Lace Ford is a sought after speaker, consultant and writer. He is a cofounder of the Sentralized conferences, serves on the national leadership team for the Forge America missional training network, and is a board member of Missio. Ford holds a master's degree in leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary and has authored several books, including Right Here, Right Now (with Alan Hirsch). UnLeader, and The Missional Quest (with Brad Brisco)

It's true. Whenever someone says that they know someone else who is evangelical, I automatically make assumptions about that person. How they dress, what they think on political issues, and what they'd think of me. Revangelical teaches you how to be an actual Evangelical and spread the news about Jesus, without being one of those people. If you like How to Pick up a Stripper or Building a Ministry of Spiritual Mentoring this is the book to check out.
