Real Change for Real Sinners (Union)
By: Dane Ortlund

Book Review

I greatly appreciated most of Dane Ortlund's book. He uses contemporary wording and analogies along with some key words from psychology. This will be a help to many a modern reader. I expect there will be several parts of the book that I will appreciate for years to come. Hopefully I'll read it again in a year or two.

My one main concern with the book is that there wasn't enough nuance at the end of the book as Ortlund exhorts the reader to be a part of the body of Christ. I agree with this application, but people who are dealing with big T or little t trauma in their lives will find the lack of nuance confusing as they try to process their trauma. It is this lack of nuance that can re-traumatize as well as damage a person's relationship with God's church.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
