Unshockable Love by John Burke is a breath of fresh air. It's a call to seeing yourself and the people around you through the eyes of Jesus. Now I have heard that rather cliche statement before but John Burke delivers.
Originally titled Mud and the Masterpiece, Burke's book is filled with interesting stories. Part One of the book really challenges you to see others through the eyes of Jesus. Each chapter ends with something to reflect on and something to try. Both were challenging in their own ways. Sometimes the reflection was harder than the action!
Part Two is more of a practical call to action and gives you a process in which to develop a community that reaches out to the world around them in more practical and relevant ways. It is really about living in community on mission with Jesus.
The tonal shift between the two parts was obvious but both tie together nicely. I ended up buying a couple copies to give away before I even got a third of the way through the book. Something I have never done before finishing a book!
Get it, read it, act on it!
