The Law says ďdo not murder.Ē But Jesus said that if youíre angry with your brother or sister, youíve broken the Law. Jesus shocked and challenged His listeners, who included the leaders of the Church.
In his new book, Quit Going to Church, Bob Hostetler shocks and challenges his readers in much the same way. Quit going to church, Hostetler says, and start being the church. Quit tithing and give everything you have. Quit saying your prayers and keep company with God. Quit Ö You get the idea.
The book, dedicated to The Salvation Army in which Hostetler grew up, is laced with Scripture, quotes from Christian writers, and Hostetlerís trademark humor. Itís an easy read, but itís full of hard lessons. Jesus would no doubt approve.
