Ok so i am reading a very cool book these days. A buddy of mine Jonathan lent it to me. It is called “Too Christian, Too Pagan” by Dick Staub. I have to admit at first i was a little skeptical. I thought ok, another book on living in a post modern world. Big deal. I have read lots of books like that and honestly they were neither motivating or challenging. Just regurgitating old knowledge. But this book is very insightful and practical. You need to get it and read it if only to read the quotes he uses. I think this guy must be a reading maven. He quotes pretty much everyone. One of the things I was challenged today with was this quote from C.K. Chesterton. “the Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and not tried.” Staub continues to say that it is better to aspire to living the gospel and fail, experiencing and giving witness to God’s wonderful grace and forgiveness in the process, than to settle for mediocrity. Check the book out and let me know what you learn and what you think.
