Once again, Keller tells it like it is for the American Christian, unpacking some cultural aspects and calling the American church to authentic godliness. I've already recommended it to key leaders around me, and passed on my own copy (I'll get it back). For anyone who feels bound by their anger, guilt, hurt or pain, I also recommend "When God Stopped Keeping Score." I thought that the book was just about forgiveness, I soon learned, it was about so much more than that. I was about how you should deal with friends, family and yourself and more importantly, how to keep these relationships strong when things go wrong. Having read it, I feel like a better person. Maybe because this book spoke to me and not down to me. I have read a lot of books that was written like I didn't know anything. What the author of "When God Stopped Keeping Score" does is talk to you like a friend. I needed that. You will understand why when you read it. Buy it here on BN.com

If you want a book which will challenge the very fabric of your life, check out Keller's Counterfeit Gods. He hits at the core of who we are and those things which we cling to over and above Christ.

Insightful as a tool to acquaint one with gods we often worship.
