The Faith of Our Fathers Stand to Reason Was the faith of the Founding Fathers deism or Christianity What does the answer mean for us today Both the secularists and the Christians have missed the mark There s been a lot of rustle in the press lately and in many Christian publications about the faith of the Founding Fathers and the status of the United States as a Christian nation.

    1. This book was like a bag of chips, I read one page and finished the whole thing. It is by far the most inspirational and motivational book I've read from Alan and/or Michael. Chapter six or the story about the trailer park in chapter seven were worth the price of the whole book. If you want to get God's mission on this is the book.


    2. I read Faith of Leap as part of the first class in the Academy for Missional Wisdom, and I resonated with much of it, knowing exactly what Frost & Hirsch mean in their critique of "churchy spirituality". They emphasize the contrast between the churches of Christendom who wait and expect people to come to them, with missional communities who understand that discipleship is being sent out.They lost me when they spent so many pages on material from Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey which has [...]


    3. Drawing on sources as diverse as J.R.R. Tolkien, sociology, anthropology, mythology and Disney films, authors Michael Frost and Alan Hirsch take a close look at ideas of adventure, heroism, and risk-taking as a means of both missional outreach and fostering deep community within the church. They outline elements of hero myth to illuminate the desire and need for adventure, for breaking out that lies deep within each person and describe how these yearnings find their source in the life of Jesus C [...]


    4. So much of our lives is caught up in the development and maintenance of security and control. I know mine is all about feeling safe. That is best compliment I ever give my Dear Hubby. That with him I know I am always safe. But as Helen Keller observed, "Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." And when our o [...]


    5. We spend our lives developing and maintaining our lives, keeping a tight reign on the path our lives take - or at least we try to. In The Faith of Leap, Frost and Hirsch discuss how to break out of our molds and to leap into the adventure of living our lives - God's adventure.How to face our fears and find courage and take risks are only the broad basis of the novel, but how to achieve those desires and how they can change your life is also touched upon. Dashed throughout the book are passages f [...]


    6. Another challenging book from Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost. A good follow up to 'The Forgotten Ways' and a reminder that the call to Christian living is an adventurous one.The challenge is to take their ideas and to make them real within our own context.







    7. Absolutely brilliant work. And while many of the themes here have been repeated from other works, this book does well to add to the ongoing missional conversation.



    8. A must-read for those interested in missional churches and in how risk and adventure are part of a life of faith.


    9. Good book to read at this crossroads in my life and ministry. Lots of challenging thoughts and ideas here. Gets one star less for sometimes getting lost in the forest with too much theory.
