A Review of Naked Spirituality

Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words by Brian D. McLaren My rating: 3 of 5 stars I like Brian McLaren, but I've found his books to be either hit or miss and this one seems to be a miss for me. It's a lightweight, I guess intentionally, but there's nothing really …

A Review of More Ready than you Realize

More Ready Than You Realize: The Power of Everyday Conversations by Brian D. McLaren My rating: 2 of 5 stars I usually like McLaren's books and I wanted to like this one, but in the end, I didn't finish it because I just couldn't buy the primary premise. It's a book about how the Christian …
