Rumors of God

Rumors of God by Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson is very similar to many books currently on the market such as Radical, anything by Frances Chan, etc. Both men work in large churches and talk about what is wrong with the church today. The authors use many personal stories, but the first person accounts got a bit much - especially when as a reader you are trying to keep track of who is telling the story at a particular spot.

Topics covered include abundant life, dreams, generosity, generosity, love, grace, freedom, commitment, community, justice and hope.  There were times when the chapters seemed to be strings of quotes from other authors and websites.  There wasn't anything in the book that I disagreed with. However, nothing was new in the book. If you haven't read many of the current books on churches of today and how we need to return to the basics of the bible then this would be a good book to read.
