    Are we becoming more like the world we seek to change?

    This is no ivory tower discussion abou the Christian life. It keeps the reader grounded in concrete examples, real=life people, and pertinent questions. The examples span the centuries from Isaiah to Mother Teresa and Sister Dorothy Stang who worked for land refor in Brazil and was murdered in 2005. Hart helps us realize that it is easier to write a check than to accept "outsiders" or look at the "dark side of enmity."
    Scripture passages as well as questions are available at the end of each chapter for reflection and especially useful for group discussion. For those of us use to sound bytes, a twelve-point checklist is also available on how to become a better Christian.
