The Scandal of Christianity
by R T Kendall
R T Kendall has been a best selling author for a lot of years now, and there is a good reason for that - he's not afraid to put forward difficult subjects and express his opinion on them.
This book looking at The Scandal of Christianity is certainly a case in point. So what is the scandal?
In many ways it's a multi-faceted one. We find first that it's a scandal that Christianity has become so much the unfavoured child and the message so sidelined and ridiculed and secondly it's a scandal that so few Christians are really willing to stand up against this besmirching and really take a stand, and of course there is also the attached scandal that some Christians are contributing to this impression others have by their actions that seem so at odds with the real message of Christ and Christianity. Do I agree with all Kendall said in this book, no, but what I do agree with is that it is an issue we really need to grapple with and address and not brush under the carpet. So in that respect this is a much needed book that should certainly be looked at, read and considered - indeed it could even be done as a group church activity.
