Well, Father Dwight Longenecker just recently released his best book ever. It’s titled The Romance of Religion. That’s saying a lot from a man who has authored more than 15 books.
The Romance of Religion: Religious vs. Spiritual
Like a crusading preacher of the Middle Ages, Father Longenecker stands at the gates of our city begging us to join him in battle. The Romance of Religion trumpets the notes of love, sacrifice, and mystery. In an age where everyone wants to be “spiritual but not religious,” Father Longenecker challenges us to take up the cross of the only religion with romance: Christianity.
This is a great book for those of you that struggle with “being religious” and the temptation to “just be spiritual.” It also reminded me that the Gospel is radical and places a 100% claim on my soul. In short, if your life is not a spiritual adventure, you’re not living the message of Christ. Life is Christ is the most epic journey that you can experience. Also, if you a man who has grown up under an “effeminized” portrait of Christ, you need to read this book right away.
