This book makes an important point. Many churches, in striving for numerical growth, in trying to be culturally relevant, and in attempting to meet the felt needs of their congregations are pursuing a trajectory that is a departure from the gospel. While the name Jesus is frequently evoked he is often portrayed more as a life-coach and dispenser of good advice than as a Saviour and sacrifice for sin. I have found this book helpful in outlining the forms the departures take and in warning of the dangers. Michael Horton gives many examples which he sets forth in his clear, readable style.

This book is an accurate description of popular christian culture today. This shows how people have turned their focus off god onto materialistic desires. this book is very good at explaining how we bring the focus back to god. Many critics may call the style critical and negative however the theology and doctrine taught does need to be examined in order to ensure there is no deception in the church

I must say I found this book profoundly insightful, helpful and refreshing. A must read for those who feel misled and doubtful in their faith.

Really enjoyed this book although it was quite frightening how much the churches in the UK seem to be aping the American churches. A salutary warning that we don't need new strategies, emerging churches or sets of rules but to go back to the church's primary function - preaching Christ and Him crucified to a world which does not now recognise the concept of sin and to feed existing Christians who might otherwise drift away.

I know it's a serious subject but some books seem to make you feel you've learned something even if the subject is gloomy and some just make you feel morose. This book very much was the latter. Not particularly well written, a fair bit of repetition and serious points often made by apparently attacking one or two individuals rather than analysing their work and statements in detail. Not a scholarly text and didn't really contribute much to a subject area that needs above all things objectivity.
