Thanks to my buddy Jonathan, I went to Berean’s and bought two new books (and a Veggie Tales video for my daughters).
The first book is one that I’ve been wanting to read for several months: The Barbarian Way by Erwin McManus. He says the greatest threat to the movement of Jesus Christ is Christianity! McManus is the lead pastor at Mosaic in Los Angeles, a church that is forging a new way for postmodern ministry. Mosaic was influential in shaping some of my thinking regarding LifePoint.
The second book is entitled, “Walk On: The Spiritual Journey of U2.” Yes, that U2. Many people who like U2 don’t realize their Christian background. This was a more spontaneous purchase. I saw it on display, thumbed through it, and bought it. At least now I can better appreciate my U2 iPod.
