Overview

HAS THE NAME “CHRISTIAN” LOST IT’S POWER?

“Lately I’ve felt like being a modern day Christian has left me wanting more. A growing constituency of “others” want more.

I know there’s more. Don’t you really know this too? That fish on the back of your car really DOES mean something. Its purpose should be more than merely enticing someone to honk and wish you a nice day if, indeed, you didn’t just cut them off. The concert isn’t over. The best music --- the music and song we long to hear --- has not disappeared or been rerouted to China. We’ve just stepped strangely and temporarily off the stage. I sense God wants to bring us back for a fist-pumping encore. Let’s scream, cheer, write, pray, search, and hunger until the real music plays again. There is soon to be more music reverberating a challenging melody. Maybe Christians and Jesus followers everywhere will raise their Bic lighters into the air and begin wearing, again, the impeccable name of Jesus. Let’s explore some specific strategies to help get us there.”
- Alan Scott

SHOULD WE JUST QUIT?

I Quit Being A Christian To Follow Jesus is a challenging study birthed from the book of Luke. In this timely book, specific passages of scripture and strategies are explored to regain meaning to the much-maligned name of “Christian.”

ALAN SCOTT is the Lead Pastor at Cumberland Community Church in Smyrna, Georgia.
