Book #4 - The Jesus of Suburbia

I just finished reading The Jesus of Suburbia: Have We Tamed the Son of God to Fit Our Lifestyle? by Mike Erre. This is a good book for people who are just entering into the post modern discussion. Mike even admits during the Acknowledgements that he doesn't really have an original thought. If you have read anything from Rob Bell, Len Sweet, or Erwin McManus you won't really read anything all that new. That being said, Mike does do a good job of presenting a very real conversation with a pastor who admits that he doesn't have all of the answers and he is more interested in engaging the questions than coming up with the perfect response.

Our Senior Management Team will be discussing this book while we are away on our retreat later this month.
