Irresistible Faith Becoming the Kind of Christian the World Can't Resist By Scott Sauls

I was given a copy of this book for free in order to provide my honest feedback

Book Description

What if Christians became the best advertisement for Jesus?
Jesus said his followers would be a light to the world and a city on a hill--a warmly inviting, neighbor-loving, grace- and truth-filled destination for all. He envisioned his followers as life-giving neighbors, bosses, employees, and friends, the kind of people who return insults with kindness and persecution with prayers. Rooted in biblical convictions, they would extend love, empathy, and care to one another as well as to those who don't share their beliefs. Over time their movement would become irresistible to every nation, tribe, and tongue. Irresistible Faith is a blueprint for pursuing this vision in our current moment, of redeemed individuals and a renewed community working for a restored world. This is a way of being that gives a tired, cynical world good reason to pause and reconsider Christianity--and to start wishing it was true.


As I was reading this book it really made me look at my life and really examine my behavior and habits.  I realized I was missing the mark in many ways.  This book challenges us to be contagious Christians, by placing Christ at the center and living a life that reflects that.  Not just when it suits us, but every moment of everyday.  We live in a time where there is so many distractions and it can be easy to loose our way.  We are tempted to judge by the worlds standards, but this book reminds us here is a higher better way of living!  We need to keep our eyes on Jesus and remind ourselves that we are not here to judge each other, but to help one another.  We need to be the example of Irresistible Faith!
