Overview

Journey Towards Relevance: Simple Steps for Transforming Your World by Kary Oberbrunner

How do you live "in the world, but not of it"? Many Christians today seem to gravitate towards two extremes: They either entirely separate themselves from the culture around them or completely conform to the world in an attempt to be relevant. Fuzzy thinking has dominated the paradox between the black and white, and more and more Christians are confused on how to live an effective, culturally relevant life. Transformation is needed. The Journey Towards Relevance invites you to begin a journey towards that transformation -- towards relevance.

I'm still chewing on a lot of the points you made and I¿m beginning to work on incarnating them. You've pumped me up and directed me to the path of becoming a true transformist! I've got a lot of work to do, but thanks for the encouragement, guidance, and challenge! Hopefully with this new insight, I can make a huge difference for Christ at my college. Thanks for sharing what God has laid on your heart with me. I think it will challenge others like it¿s challenged me. The book definitely stirred my heart. In fact, I've been in a state of 'spiritual mourning' these past few days after reading The Journey Towards Relevance. I realized that I¿ve spent most of my high school career living as a separatist. I'm sure God could have done so much more through me if I`d only been a transformist. I was challenged to reflect on what was keeping me from taking this next step of becoming a transformist. I came to grips with the fact that my unbalanced love for God, to the exclusion of a love people, was not true love at all! This was a very hard thing to deal with because my love for God was what I had prided myself in, being a separatist and all. But I didn't even love God wholistically. The sad thing is, is that I never even realized all this until I read your book. The Journey Towards Relevance captures a struggle I¿ve encountered. In fact, it captured many struggles. Once I realized that I was a separatist, the struggles that you mentioned about becoming a transformist were dead on. I wanted to be relevant to people, but I struggled with taking that risk and stepping out into a position that was no longer safe. I¿d especially recommend this book to my other Christian friends in high school and college. Like I mentioned earlier, I feel that I could¿ve had a bigger impact, had I better understood the tension of being in the world and not of it. This is definitely an area that all my Christian friends struggle with as well. We constantly feel this tension. Up until this point, no one has offered any real answers. This book sheds light on how to deal with that tension.
