Rumors of God: Experience the Kind of Faith You´ve Only Heard About by Darren Whitehead & Jon Tyson

Sep 16

 Rumors of God deals with some of the basics of Christianity (Abundant Life, Generosity, Grace, Freedom, etc.); however, Whitehead & Tyson (2 long time friends from Australia) supplement their thinking with detailed statistics, historical studies, personal illustrations and more. The book is not a difficult read but it will challenge the new believer as well as the mature believer.

From the evolution of Fairy Tales (Pinocchio for instance, p. 15) to the manipulation of consumers via advertizing and emotions (p. 17) to real life stories of devotion and change (p. 21) the book gets to the heart of Christianity. As a Bible teacher of 15 years who has been seminary trained, the book not only caused me to re-examine my understanding and devotion to God but also provided me with fresh insights and anecdotes to use in my daily teaching ministry (teens through adults).

Some of my favorite quotes are;

If you could do anything with your life what would it be?

The movement of Jesus is supposed to be defined by dreamers and visionaries.

If we always compare ourselves with those in financial brackets above us, we will never feel content.

How did we get to the point where radical generosity is only a rumor in the church?

Giving is the first thing to do in breaking hte cycle of greed and taking hold of real life.

In short what made this book great to me was the connections the authors made between society, media, the Gospel, humanity and this was done via statistics, historical research, personal illustrations, etc. The Chapter entitled “Radical Individualism” was just about worth purchasing the book (although I received it free in agreement to post a review).

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_03/16cfr255_03.html> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
