Surprise the World
If you call yourself a follower of Jesus and are looking for ways to be more open and conversational about your faith without being a jerk, Surprise the World is a good place to start.
The author, Australian theologian Mike Frost, shares five habits that can help you find a better rhythm of connecting your faith and your everyday life. The premise is that Christians should live in a way that provokes questions, and then be ready to share why we live the way we do. It’s all about being open, hospitable, willing to listen, and always ready to learn. If more Christians lived this way I think it would indeed be a surprise to the world.
It’s short, sweet, and easy to read, packed with practical suggestions, interesting stories and theological tidbits. If you read it and try out any of his suggestions, I’d love to hear how it goes.
