Description

When Jesus was asked to sum up the whole huge leather Bible into one simple phrase, he actually gave us two commandments. But modern evangelicals have short attention spans and only heard that we should love our neighbor. Christians everywhere have bought ineffective refrigerator magnets and bumper stickers, but in this book, we will give you better stickers and magnets because we finally found the perfect formula to honor God through block parties!


What would happen if every follower of Jesus twisted the Great Commandment into only loving our neighbors? Is it possible we can create world peace by ignoring that whole subjective 'loving God' part and throwing a block party instead?


The Art of Shallow Neighboring was penned in response to the sheer number of Christian books and organizations casting aside true Biblical study and discipleship for trendy business practices and scriptural mis-interpretations. While this book is intended to be a Christian comedy and parody, there is nothing funny about the way modern evangelicalism is treating the Bible. Hopefully this book will help people everywhere realize we need to stop looking for the shortcuts to God, and instead set down our digital devices, pull out that old dusty Bible, and begin true and deep study. I implore small groups to put aside video curricula and appoint a wise teacher of the Bible to teach, and for Churches to truly place the Bible above trendy business practices. Let us repent and return to God as they did in the time of Ezra, the priest.

  • (5/5)
    Addressing negative trends in the modern, western church; its insatiable desire for the latest buzzwords and logos to "change the world"; and sloppy, if not disingenuous, exegesis of scripture to reach desired conclusions, this book is a clever and Biblical rebuttal to "The Art of Neighboring". WARNING: "The Art of Shallow Neighboring" is a parody with a level of dry humor that may rub certain readers the wrong way. If you find it unbearable, just skip to chapter 15 for a concise and no-nonsense critique of "The Art of Neighboring".
