Jesus said many things that caused trouble by not being what people wanted to hear. Among those are when he told Peter that he was free from taxes, but to go pay them anyways. Christians are to bear witness in their lives by living exemplary lives as Christ did.
Rather than a traditional book review, I wanted to reflect on my takeaway from Chan's "Letters to the Church." I hope this sparks you to think about the church or even encourages you to read Chan's book and interact in dialogue with it yourself!
