The Christian Atheist – One of the really good books that I read this past summer was written by Craig Groeschel and is called The Christian Atheist. It sounds like a rather strange title until one reads the premise of the book. The sub-title gives a clue: “Believing in God but Living as if He Doesn’t Exist”. Groeschel encourages us to live the life of dependence that God desires for us. Various aspects of life are considered on a chapter by chapter basis. The listing of chapters is quite eye opening.

            -When You Believe in God but Don’t Really Know Him.

            -When You Believe in God but Are Ashamed of Your Past.

            -When You Believe in God but Aren’t Sure He Loves You.

            -When You Believe in God but Not in Prayer.

            -When You Believe in God but Don’t Think He’s Fair.

            -When You Believe in God but Won’t Forgive.

            -When You Believe in God but Don’t Think You Can Change.

            -When You Believe in God but Still Worry All the Time.

            -When You Believe in God but Pursue Happiness at Any Cost.

            -When You Believe in God but Trust More in Money.

            -When You Believe in God but Don’t Share Your Faith.

            -When You Believe in God but Not in His Church.

The author is the pastor of a large church ministry in Oklahoma. He is quite transparent in his writing with lots of real life stories to illustrate his points. I think the chapter on the Church is especially important in this day and age where folks only look for what the Church can do for them and in the process miss the importance of the overall equation.

Pick up a copy; I know you will be blessed,
