10 Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe

Last night I finished a great little book by Larry Osborne called 10 Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe. I really enjoyed this book and Osborne's writing style. It's similar to his last book that I read and reviewed, Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God (which I believe has recently been retitled). Osborne likes making faith make sense and debunking spiritual myths.

The 10 spiritual "urban legends" he deals with in this book are:
  • Faith can fix anything.
  • Forgiving means forgetting.
  • A Godly home guarantees Godly kids.
  • God has a blueprint for my life.
  • Christians shouldn't judge.
  • Everything happens for a reason.
  • Let your conscience be your guide.
  • God brings good luck.
  • A valley means a wrong turn.
  • Dead people go to a better place.
This is a great book that will answer a lot of life questions for the typical church attender, and an even better source of good sermon material for pastors. Check it out. $10.99 @ CBD.
