Broken


Do you want to be a rebel? Jonathan Fisk is going to give you lots of ammo to rage against the machine. In His book Broken: 7 "Christian" Rules that Every Christian Ought to Break as Often as Possible, he unloads and unpacks seven worldviews that should be argued against.

I'll admit I wondered what I was getting myself into in the first chapter, as Fisk sounded more like an Old Testament prophet than a modern day writer. Not that I have anything against Old Testament prophets. When God calls you to be a voice, you gotta listen, right? Jonathan varied between waxing poetic and bringing needed wisdom quite admirably. By the end of the first chapter I was 2 parts intrigued, 1 part fearful, but all parts ready to continue reading.

Each chapter has a subtitle that left me wondering which direction he was headed. His illustrations were thought out thoroughly, especially when he turned from prophet to fan boy and weaved a Star Wars comparison through an entire chapter. I have to confess that his distaste of Jar Jar Binks didn't hurt his cause to win me to his side of thinking.

Battling worldviews is not an easy thing to do, especially when they are ingrained in society from long before we are born. Or start to care about these matters. But this would be a good resource to begin the dialogue with younger people. These are important details we need to be talking about and discussing.

I received this book for free from my good friends at Salem Publishing. They give me stuff and ask that I say what I think. You can out this book here.
