I have been reading, Dangerous Wonder by Michael Yaconelli. Colorado Springs: Navipress, 1998. I got it cheap because it is “old”.
Early in the book he says this:
… The critical issue today is dullness. We have lost our astonishment. The Good News is no longer good news, it is okay news. Christianity is no longer life changing, it is life enhancing. Jesus doesn’t change people into wild-eyed radicals anymore, He changes them into “nice people”… What happened to the kind of Christians who were filled with passion and gratitude, and who every day were unable to get over the grace of God.
I hope to be the sort of Christian who has been unable to get over the grace of God.Michael Yaconelli
