    Book

    If that is the title then I expect it would be a waste of my time to read it.:tonofbricks:

    I have not read it but I might be interested in doing so. Have you read it? Is so, what did you think of it? What are the backgrounds of the authors? Are they Christians?

    No, I haven't read it but some reviews say it talks about many things we do in church come from pagan sources.
    George Barna and Frank Viola ay they are chistians and one reviewer said one of the authors was a house church proponent, and you could tell by the book.

    I think it is a remake of pagan christianity retitled pagan churchs. I haven't read that one either and I don't know if it is even worth reading hence why I ask if anyone else has.
