As A Christian, What are Your Thoughts on This Book?

Post by Kaitlin Bryant »

I just purchased this book after reading the book synopsis and plan to start reading it soon. Before I dive into the book, I would like to hear fellow Christians take on the book.
Have you read it?
Did you find things problematic or disagreeable?
Or do you think this is a book that could spark good discussions for Christians and non Christians alike?

I recently came across Scott Hughes' book "In It Together." As a Christian, the message of unity and love for all definitely resonates with some core Christian beliefs. After all, Jesus himself preached about loving your neighbor as yourself.
That being said, some interpretations of the book seem to stray a bit from traditional Christian teachings, particularly when it comes to specific aspects of sin and salvation.
Overall, I think there's value in the author's message of compassion and understanding. But, I'd probably want to explore it alongside the Bible to make sure everything lines up with my faith.

Thank you so much for your response!
That encourages me to feel comfortable reading it to explore the teachings on unity and love.
Sadly, while Jesus' words stressed the importance of loving others, it's where a lot of us fall short.

As a Christian, I urge my fellow christians to read this book with an open mind and be willing to learn from different perspectives.
It's actually a thought-provoking book that seems to offer deep insights that could complement or even expand our understanding.

Not that everything in the book agrees with the Bible, but it does contain the majority of Christian values like unity, tolerance, and understanding.
