Book Review: Rumors of God by Whitehead and Tyson

The full title of this book is Rumors of God: Experience the Kind of Faith You've Only Heard About. The authors, Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson, both have a vision for an awakening for the church, especially in America.  Rumors of God is their call to a deeper understanding, relationship, and walk with our God.

I found it quite insightful and thought provoking. Each chapter addresses a "rumor": of abundant life, of generosity, of love, of grace, of commitment, of community, etc.  The book is geared towards Christians seeking more out of their faith.

I think this book has something for every Christian, though to what depths would vary with each individual. It was very easy to read and just like our Lord used parables, they told many stories of individuals they've encountered which either had need of the Truths they wrote about, or about how those individuals showed the Truths to them.  These stories keep the book from being another theoretical book, but instead motivates you to claim these things of God for your life and the world.

The book made me want to converse with and get to know the authors. I think that's usually a good sign that a book is worth reading.

I got this book free from in exchange for my review!
