Four Letter Words by Bill Giovannetti Blog Tour

Happy Friday, all! In New Hampshire, we got dumped on with snow and ice all early evening and still as we speak. At home, they got a snow day, leaving me jealous! We keep losing power, so I'm hoping my computer stays charged long enough to write this before I leave for class!

About Four Letter Words:

Thou shalt tolerate every opinion... except the Christian's. Today's postmodern "prime directive" leaves many followers of Jesus tongue-tied. In the global village, isn't it unreasonable, and even dangerous, to suggest that the Bible has a monopoly on truth?

The church needs a new breed of Christ-follower. We need Christ-followers who are alert to today's touchy ideas, the truths that fire up more heat than light. We need Christ-followers who can make a clear case for the Bible's worldview; who are ready to help our friends think through their beliefs; who can recognize inconsistencies and challenge them; and who can do all of this with humility, confidence, humor, and love.

My Review: I was actually really disappointed with this book. Though I had high hopes upon reading the blurb and receiving the book, I was let down upon completion. This book discusses four letter worded topics such as 'hurt' and 'love'. It had many biblical references and quotes from the Bible itself yet it came across as though Bill Giovannetti was trying to beat it against your forehead. I also did not like that he advertised his website and had 'sticks' for it any chance he got; this included the new links for iPhones to scan into their phones and go straight to the website. Some may find that convienant, but I found it annoying that he would feel the need to advertise so much. 
Overall, my hopes and expectations much exceeded my finished opinion. I would try something by this author again to see if his style and choices had changed at all, but otherwise I wouldn't really recommend this book. 

I recieved this book for free for my honest opinion.
