More Lost Than Found: Finding A Way Back To Faith
By: Jared Herd
This book is just riddled with errors. I won’t even try to deal with them all but will focus on what I think is the biggest problem (which also is the biggest problem in most Christian books, songs and churches) and that is an essential misunderstanding of the message of Jesus Christ in the Gospel. I’m thoroughly convinced that Jared herd is a theological liberal. I believe this is the reason he misunderstands the Gospel. This quote should say it all. Page 89: “Christianity in its origins was about the ideas that Jesus taught, about a new way of connecting with God through what Jesus taught.” That’s a really serious error. Christianity is about what Jesus did, not taught. It’s about being reconciled to God through what Jesus did on the Cross and NOT about connecting to Him through some good teachings. He is so blatantly liberal that two pages later he claims U2 singer Paul “Bono” Hewson is better preaching the message of Jesus than the churches. This book has a lot more errors for sure. But this brief look on how the author doesn’t even know what Christianity is about should be more than ample support for my conclusion that you should avoid this book.
