Book Review: Living Spirituality

Robbymac does a great review of Living Spirituality by Dr. Greg Laughery. Here's a taste:-
Greg's depiction of impoverished spirituality includes a rather accurate, if stinging, assessment of churches that have become "institutionalized":
"This is partially due to the fact that Christians often seem to be primarily interested in themselves: propogating their programs, building their churches, even manipulating some of their own in order to achieve social status and accomplish their goals and aims. People are left behind in the wake of promising words that give the pretense of care and concern, but translate into intolerable levels of neglect and inconsistent waffling." (page 15)
Many people suffer emotional and spiritual abuse by such self-centred; navel gazing; churchtainment; wealth chasing oriented businesses dressed up in church clothing.

Lord Veritas,
Thanks for your positive post and the link to Robby's review of my book: Living Spirituality. In regard's to your last sentence in the post. Let's hope and pray that the Spirit strips us naked and re-clothes us with Scripture, and that this will illuminate the path for us to follow in the footsteps of the crucified and risen One.
Greg

Hi Greg - thanks for dropping by downunder. I couldn't agree more with you and am really looking forward to reading your book and hope we all are transformed. Wouldn't it be amazing if the church was actually the bride of Christ instead of what it sometimes looks like - an adulterous harlot chasing after everything else except Christ.
