Competing Spectacles, Tony Reinke
“Tony Reinke has proven to be a wise guide for Christians through this era of technological whirl. Now with this accessible, sagacious book, he has done so again. This book shows us how to pull our eyes away from the latest viral video or our digital avatars of self and toward the ‘spectacle’ before which we often cringe and wince: the crucifixion of our Lord. That’s the spectacle we need.”
―Russell D. Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
“Tony Reinke has the prophetic knack of helping us see the truth about ourselves and our world. In these pages―as illuminating as they are disturbing and challenging―he stands in the tradition of the spiritual masters who have understood that the city of man’s―and woman’s―soul is often attacked and destroyed through eye-gate. But Competing Spectacles not only diagnoses our distorted vision; it prescribes spectacles that give us twenty-twenty spiritual vision. Essential reading.”
―Sinclair B. Ferguson, Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries
Any book by Rosaria Butterfield is a keeper – just search her on Amazon and buy! She is a former lesbian and tenured English professor at Syracuse University, who came to Christ through the loving hospitality of Christians. And she lived to tell the story. Now she practices radical, ordinary hospitality in her own home.
Tim Chester, A Meal with Jesus. Tim takes us through the gospel of Luke and chronicles Jesus’ meals and what they can teach us. Five stars for this one.
