iMonk: No Super Christians

My plan was to post a humorous Tuesday’s 10 today. But when I read “No Super Christians” by Chaplain Mike I decided it could wait.

I watched the Francis Chan video he posted and discussed yesterday. And it haunted me. But probably not in the way you think.

A few years back, as a pastor to students, I took my students to a camp where Chan spoke. I took them there because he was speaking. And now I wish I hadn’t. Because now they’ll hear this Don’t Waste Your Life 3.0 and despise every life except the craziest ones. Platt’s Radical was 2.0.

From now on when asked about my book – coming later this year – I can just point to this.

Last thought…is everyone just parroting Piper nowadays?

    I’m leaving Lurkerdom to say thanks. Thanks a lot for informing me that I probably wasted $10 on Crazy Love, purchased a few months ago, currenty on my bedside table as the next book in the queue.

    Looking forward to your book. It better not be a waste of $10, too. Thank you.

      Tara, Thanks for going public and I can guarantee my book will either be worth your $10 as a book or a bug killer. Either way, my kids need a new pair of shoes.

    Piper’s one of those guys where I read a few of his books because he was all the rage at Mars Hill for years. I found myself underwhelmed. If Platt and Chan are Don’t Waste Your Life 2.0 and 3.0 I’ll pass.
