Buddy’s #7 Why Johnny Can’t Preach

I have held off writing a review of this book.

I wholeheartedly agreed with 90% of what T David Gordon says.  In fact, it challenged me as I would prepare messages after reading it.  Today as I popped in on a Super Bowl Party I saw about a third of the people on their laptops or iphones instead of watching the game and sharing with others.  Our intake of media is definitely shaping us and our relationships and I do not think it has been in a positive direction.

My main critique of the book is that if the sermons that we see in Scripture were put to the test by Gordon very few would get a passing grade from him.  I got the distinct feeling that he would be more at home with the Pharisees than the Disciples.

  1. Great last sentence, Buddy. I’m not sure that I agree, but I like the sound of it.

    By the way, we you one on your laptop during the Super Bowl?
