Christianish.



my name is nadia wilder. from the age of fifteen, i claimed to be a Christian. in fact, i thought i was a Christian. but the truth is, i wasn't a Christian at all. . .

I was Christianish.

"This is the difference between Christianish and Christ-follower. We have trained ourselves to cope well on a Christianish path: a path where we please the right godly people and don't feel guilt when our failings are seen by the world at large. Yes, our methods work on this path - but it's the wrong path. It's not the approach to Jesus that we are supposed to take - that we are created to take." ~ Mark Steele

i stumbled by accident upon this book while looking for a gift for a friend. it is very rare for me to pick up a book at random. now that i think about it, i cannot actually remember when i ever have. but i was drawn to the title and the sub-title: "what if we're not really following Jesus at all?"...

yea. what if?... (well, there goes my idea for a book).

i read the description on the backside and it was, word for paraphrased word, the description of my own life. mark steele's story is my story. God's redemptive work delivering him from complacent and comfortable Christianish culture to the radical, passionate pursuit of Christ.
