    I attend John Burke's church....

    ...and if you think the book is phenomenal, you should attend a service! It has been years since I have actually gotten excited about going to church, and now I do. Gateway (the church) truly means it when they says 'No perfect people allowed'. I have been attending services for almost a year and never have I felt so welcome regardless of how I am dressed, the car I drive, or the job I have. This book made me realize God doesn't see all those things...just my heart. Which is how we should see each other. If you're ever in Austin, TX, be sure and stop by. You will certainly feel welcomed and thoroughly enjoy it!

    A fresh (and refreshing!) perspective on the church!

    We've been living in a new city searching for a church where we could invite any of our friends, regardless of background, life situation, or past church experience (or lack of) without fear of putting them in an uncomfortable situation. A much larger order to fill than we had expected, because, as it turns out, many people are NOT comfortable in church--period! This book explains how that has come to be and why churches are struggling, but, most importantly, it demonstrates exactly how churches and Christians can (and should) reach out to and meet the needs of an ultra-diverse people with diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and situations. This is not 'watered-down Christianity' or 'moral relativism'--contrarily, it is biblical Christianity in its best, purest, most powerful and effective (and user-friendly) form. For ANYONE interested in reaching the seemingly unreachable. The author is incredibly engaging and easy to read, but be warned that the substance might just change your perspective on church and religion!
