I just finished reading The Fine Line by Kary Oberbrunner and I must say I was surprised at how challenging and insightful it was.
Even though the book claimed to re-envision the gap between Christ and Culture, I truly expected it to fall slightly into one camp or the other. Leaning more towards, as Kary calls it, the Separatist or Conformist camp. However in this book Kary truly does walk the fine line and shows a different way. A Transformist way.
I for one am impressed. It was heartening to see someone call for an end to the insanity and to challenge us all to love!
One of my favorite lines from the book is "Just like the Samaritan we'll be relevant when we get off our proverbial...um...donkeys and love people."
If you are tired of the status quo in your Christian life than this is the book for you. If you tend to shun the world...well you aren't reading this review so never mind, but if you are one who embraces the world and all it's trappings (and if you shun the world but secretly read this blog) than you will not want to miss this challenging book.
The stories will touch your heart, the diagrams will bring a visual picture to the teaching and the point will change your life if you let it!
