The Christianity Today Book Awards

Christianity Today has their book awards out. I've read two of them (Jacobs' book on C.S. Lewis and Christian Smith's book on teenager spirituality). Some good stuff there.

My name is Jacob Jenkins and I am currently doing a "virtual book tour".
I've stopped at this blogsite because I have recently written a book on Christian spirituality, and it appears that many of you might be interested in joining the national discussion it has begun.


The book is entitled:
"Buried Alive - A Discussion on Overcoming the 'Seven Lifeless Sins'".

Its premise is that most of Christians are not evil.
Must of us don't have 12 mistresses. We aren't serial killers.
Rather, it is the the sly and subtle sins of life - sins like fundamentalism and materialism and comfort and busyness - that keep us from the life we were intended.

By referencing over 2600 Scripture verses "Buried Alive" discusses how each of us can overcome the hidden dangers of lifeless living.




"Fresh, bold and relevant." - Jason Pollack,

"...will shake you out of a business-as-usual faith walk. A must read." - Ivan Max Dunn,
Retired US Navy Captain




"Buried Alive: A Discussion on Overcoming the Seven Lifeless Sins" is available now at Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com

Come join the discussion!
