Irresistible Faith by Scott Sauls
What if Christians became the best advertisement for Jesus? That is the idea behind Scott Saul’s book, Irresistible Faith. Jesus said His followers would be a light to the world and a city on a hill — a warmly inviting, neighbor-loving, grace- and truth-filled destination for all. Irresistible Faith is a blueprint for pursuing this vision in our current day and age. It holds ideas what we can do as individuals and communities, to pursue to vision and apply it to our lives.
Irresistible Faith consists of three parts: abiding in the irresistible Christ., belonging to an irresistible community, and becoming an irresistible Christian. All these are based on biblical convictions and Scripture. I found that this book is a great reminder for all Christians. We are supposed be a light to the world. However, that does not mean that we need to become “relatable” to the world. These two get mixed up fairly easily, which is why I think Irresistible Faith is a good read for us all.
I have to say, though, that Irresistible Faith didn’t really speak that much to me. Not because it didn’t have good content, no, not at all. I really liked the content of this book. I liked all the calls to action, that were clearly drawn from the Bible. Really, this book went through important topics and Scott Sauls covered them in a good way. But in this season of life, this was not a book that spoke to me.
Just because this didn’t speak to me, doesn’t mean that you should skip reading this book. Quite the opposite, I would think. Especially if you are interested in reaching the world, like we all should be.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review program. However, I was not required to write a positive review. All the opinions here are my own.
