Rumors of God
By: Darren Whitehead & Jon Tyson
Rumors of God opens with a story about a woman who ministered to strippers by going to where they were. She ministered to them by doing their makeup. She provided CD’s of the sermons from her church. One of the ladies started listening to them and got saved in the process. What a unusual, beautiful story.
After I read this amazing story, I was hooked on this book. The authors provide a mixture of current age stories with biblical history, scripture and commentary from prolific authors into an easily read masterpiece of meaningful understanding of serving God in new ways.
The church is not dead. It is alive. God is working through our people in our churches in unusual ways. The authors of this book tell this story. They refer to the stories as rumors. Isn’t that what rumors are? Stories?
These stories come together to make this book that is co-written by two friends who came to the United States from Australia to attend college and preach the gospel. They are now working as Pastors in huge churches in big cities. They are making a difference in the country, and the world through these churches.
“We wrote this book because the thought of our generation going to the grave without seeing the fame and deeds of God filling the pages of our won stories and the story of the world is untenable. We believe God is writing an epic, global, redemptive story that every single one of us has been invited into.” P. 8.
I highly recommend this book for all audiences, Christian and the non-religious. I believe that something in this book will resonate with each reader and could result in a changed life.
I give Rumors of God 4 ½ stars.
