Quick and easy
Short read but to the point. Would serve for an excellent refresher on bringing the right outlook and balance to our Christian faith.

Revise us Again
In this Biblically sound short book, Viola puts his foot down on many Christian practices. He urges readers to come back to the main attraction that is Christ Jesus and to actually walk the walk they talk. Some topics gone over are lax Christians versus judgemental Christians, claiming to have revelation from God, saying one will pray about something, adhering only to one denomination's set rules about Jesus, and more. Sometimes the Bible verses are quoted, and other times they are just referenced. With an uncanny voice for the truth, Viola will make readers really take a good hard look at themselves in the mirror and see if they actually see Christ.Was this review helpful?

Easy to read
I found this book interesting and easy to read. Viola asks us to examine our Christian life and habits to make sure that we are actually living a life that is following Jesus' example and not one that is strictly based on habits learned from our church and fellow Christians. We all fall into habits, it doesn't hurt to examine them and see which ones are good and which ones need to be revised. His 10 chapters each deal with an area that is easily influenced by culture and social expectations especially in the area of language usage. He made good points in each area with excellent examples. Definitely a book to read and refer to often.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Excellent tool to revise your life!
Revise Us Again by Frank Viola is a small but powerful book to the body of Christ. Through ten chapters, he shines the spotlight on the assumptions in the church and gently directs the follower of Christ to revise the Christian script by closely examining their relationship with the Lord. No steel-toed shoes are needed, but you will examine your motivations as he shares the benefits of rescripting in these areas.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

?how we hear from the Lord
?Christianeze - "God told me..", and never following through. How using certain phrases is often an attempt to draw attention to ourselves and our good deeds instead of the Lord.
?Christian code words, such as "I'll pray about it" (Christian code for No)and making decisions spiritual when they do not need to be
?spiritual conversation styles which divide more than unify
?making Jesus the center of the Message
?knowing that God and His power is with us, even when we do not feel Him
?slaying the green-eyed monster in the body of Christ, jealousy of spiritual gifts
? what God does is often unexpected
?everything should point to the Son
?living Ephesians 5:8
You will close this book knowing the areas you need to scrape away, chip off, and revise. What I appreciate most is the authors effort to support every position with the Word of God. I recommend every believer read this book and return to God's original script for living.
