t say nough good things about this book This book completely changed say nough good things about this book This book completely changed way I looked at Jesus and God Growing up Catholic I ve seen God as the typical old man with along flowing beard on a throne up theredistant unreachable Sound familiar When my uncle passed away I started thinking about the way he had a relationship with God and I became jealous To put it in vernacular God and him they were best buds they were bros they were ach other s wing man I wanted that but how could I be best buds with the unreachable distant God that I grew up with Then I read this book What was most stunning to the people was that Elijah s God didn t reuire a theatrical performance to spur him to action Elijah didn t have to make a big scene scream till his voice was raw or mar his flesh It was as if Jehovah had been siting on the dge of heaven with his feet hanging off the ledge waiting for the moment he was asked to intervene He was ager to respond to the reuest of his servant He wanted to help and he didn t have to be asked twice pg 32This totally stopped me in my tracks Seeing God as a being that is ager and willing to have a relationship with me an actual personal relationship with me was stunning While this book was totally revolutionary in its "message to me I have to say the last third of it was kind of uncomfortable I don t "to me I have to say the last third of it was kind of uncomfortable I don t comfortable with the idea of trying to introduce people to the idea of God and Jesus as a savior Maybe I ve been beaten over the head one too many times by the Jehovah s Witnesses That s their job not mine However I don t have a problem trying to live a better life and showing others through my
actions That s what this book taught me Want to be Christian Read this bookAlready a Christian Read this That s what this book taught me Want to be Christian Read this bookAlready a Christian Read this any case buckle up and get ready to impact your community through Work and Love Love this author Poignant personal stories from his life I m imagining a generation of Christians whoa re kind and benevolent generous and gracious who strengthens others by simply coming into contact with tbem and who turn the suffering world into a gentler kinder placeWonderful read about the Grace of God and xtending that Grace to those around us The Shadow Reader even if they seem undeserving as Jesusxtended that Grace to us. E practical applications of grace in today’s world Dirty God will appeal to both the committed Christian and the spiritual seeker looking for a authentic faith Challenging and Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies engaging Dirty God is sure tostablish Johnnie Moore as an merging voice for Millennial and Gen X vangelicals for years to come . This is the first I ve read of Pastor Johnnie Moore s writings it definitely won t be the last The writing is brilliant The message is a powerful one from God s heart to ours I m not sure I xpected the book to be on grace and it was much than that because it draws you to Jesus where you find yourself receiving grace understanding where you stand before Him and then you find grace poured grace just happens when you meet Jesus We get "Preached TOO Much "TOO much to days that faith is by grace alone and not works and the fact that we WILL BE JUDGED by our works 2 Corinthians 510 Matthew 1627 gets tossed out the proverbial window don t uite agree We can look no further than Jesus parable of The Sheep and the Goats We cannot let our faith be deceived and Pastor Johnnie Moore wants to help us find freedom in Grace The most compelling part of the message is that it s not something you acuire it s something God gives and grace just happens When you TRULY understand what Christ has done for you grace pours out you don t have to continually work to receive it Jesus is grace if you have Him He s all you need to live the life He s called you toThrough this message we find that sometimes our worship can get in the way of walking out our faith It s vital that we understand that Christ lives IN us as believers If that is so wouldn t the world be a completely different place Through Dirty God you ll be convicted compelled and comforted in knowing that you don t need to take this journey of life and faith alone Jesus is with you ach step of the way in fact He wants to lead and guide you as you take the journey with Him And it s apparent that Pastor Johnnie Moore spends an normous amount of time at the throne of Grace he s ualified AND calledI ve read some reviews criticizing Pastor Moore s new generation language And FYI I m 40 so I m old I truly feel as though it s undue and unjustified criticism The communication through the book was powerful to say the least We must all admit that communication is changing and it is VITAL that we are able to communicate to newer generations that don t speak the same language as was spoken 50 to 100 to 1000 years ago And we are no less holy because we don t use thee and thou holiness isn t based on our techniue but on our ability to allow Jesus to live. In Dirty God Jesus in the Trenches Johnnie Moore draws on both Scripture and his xtensive xperience with other cultures and religions to show how the God of the Bible is uniue in his willingness to be near us in all of our messiness Moore outlines the central importance of the doctrine of grace while introd. In and through us To not adapt to the new generations would be costly than we could all imagine And uite frankly Jesus didn t communicate in his teachings in ways that the Pharisees understood In Matthew 1310 13 we find the Disciples uestioning and almost criticizing why Jesus is speaking in a way that the Pharisees can t understand and Jesus xplains His ways So it seems vident that different communication is needed for different people Pastor Moore understands the critical factor involved in raising up the next generations and he speaks in a way that they HEAR AND UNDERSTAND Truly the Spirit is at work in and through himThis book is for EVERY Christian If you re a NEW Christian this book needs to
be one ofone of first you read If you re a matured Christian you need this book to renew your SpiritAs a note I have notified the publisher that there are some problems with the Kindle book version There are sentences maybe Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling even paragraphs that are missing stopping mid sentencetc Particularly in the first half of the book Although it does not take away from the message I was discouraged that I didn t get to read what may have been written Disclosure of Material Connection I received "this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze com book review bloggers program I "book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze com book review bloggers program I not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have xpressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising This is a book that calls us to action as Christians I love Johnnie s storytelling ability and the sense of humor he brings to his writing He s able to revisit basic theological concepts and deliver them in ngaging ways In this case it made for the perfect mix of
