Jethani, The Divine Commodity

I picked up Skye Jethani’s The Divine Commodity when it was recommended in a preaching podcast that I listen to.  Jethani worked for Leadership Journal and Christianity Today.  The book considers the way that people look at the church, both from within and from the outside, and see a consumeristic culture that has soaked in from the culture.  It’s spot on in it’s evaluation of culture and western church culture.  Then, it uses paintings by van Gogh to create a structure for the conversation.  It’s a really interesting book and tackles the topic in a smart way.

There are a few parts where I question some assumptions, but that happens with all books.  If you happen to come across this book, pick it up.  It’s interesting and you will learn something new for sure!
