Book Review: Jesus Outside the Lines

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written a post or reviewed a book. My life has been consumed with….well, becoming a Dad, preparing for a second child, finishing the requirements for full membership in the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of The United Methodist Church….so yeah, I’ve been busy. I’m hoping to get caught up on the reviews.

Scott Sauls currently serves as the Sr. Pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville. The premise of the book had me very excited. Sauls has witnessed, as have I, the divisive rhetoric around political and social issues in American/Western Christianity. He sets out to provide a better way forward, following Jesus over and against the rhetoric. I found the book to be a decent introduction to some of the topics, but in the end felt that it failed in the development of depth.


Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Tyndale Publishing as a part of its 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: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
