More Lost Than Found

The book "More lost than found" by Jared Heard tells a story of how a young boy who came to know God and serve him and lose Faith in the same place he found it, the church. The writer tended to use humor to give this book a more lighthearted approach to Christian wrongdoings and what Christians should be doing, rather than feeling like a long sermon on the hottest day of the year. It kept the reader interested in what was comming next. His personal stories also helped you connect with the author and see where he is comming from. Sometimes Christians tend to lead a lukewarm life, believing that their good deeds and kindness are 'enough' to get them into Heaven, when what they should be seeking is a deeper commitment and relationship with Christ. God doesn't want you to feel comfortable, the Christian life is a daily struggle. God wants you to turn to him, depend on him, and seek a deeper relationship. Going to church twice on Sunday and going through the motions is what's happening in a lot of churches today and causing a downfall in the Christian Faith. People talk about the turmoil and havoc going on around us everyday and how it's Satan doing his handwork because the endtimes are near. But we need to wake up people, maybe it's not Satan, but God trying to give the church a wakeup call, becuase the end times ARE near. God is desiring a closer relationship with us, his people. As the writer states in the prologue God wants us to have "A genuine faith, one that is “in the world but not of the world”". **I received this book from the publisher.
