More and more young adults have opted out of Christianity and the church. The reason
Christians. When young adults talk about the problems they have with Christianity and the church, they often name certain attitudes and behaviors they believe are practiced too often by Christians: judging others, condemning people of other faiths, rejecting science, injecting politics into faith, and being anti-homosexual. With his familiar style, Adam Hamilton tackles these issues and addresses the how’s and why’s of Christians getting it right when it comes to being Christ in the world. Those who read When Christians Get It Wrong will gain a different way of understanding the issues that keep people away from Christianity and keep Christians from living a more compelling faith. Because, honestly, if we don’t start getting it right, we may lose an entire generation.

    As a Minister this book touches on the truth. Christians do get it Wrong, but as followers, true followers of Christ, we have to pull them back in line, and how do we do this you may be asking, by being fortified in Christ Jesus ourselves, by walking the talk that we talking and not just talking about the Christian walk, but actually walking the Christian walk. Our walk should be evident to all who see us, in our deeds, in our actions and in our words. This book though written 7 years ago by Pastor Adam Hamilton is “for a time such as this”. Thank you Man of God. Thank you.
