Nonfiction Review: Passing Through by Jeremy Walker

It will be easy for many a reader to dislike what Jeremy Walker has to say in "Passing Through." I'm included in that. Walker does not hesitate in calling Christians to live a Christian life under the headship of Christ, in the world but not of the world. That does not come easy to me because I'm not a big talker. The written word is more my thing, and I'm no missionary. But the topic appealed to me because Walker talks from the perspective that we are pilgrims. He uses a great deal of Scripture to support his points, and encourages readers to fight the Devil, pursue the Great Commission, and so on. I appreciated his extensive use of Scripture and his thought-provoking points, but found that Walker tended to repeat himself and that many of his points overlapped. Although there were certain chapters that interested me more than others, such as the chapter on respecting authorities, the book really needed more specific examples: How does Satan appear in our lives? Where do we draw a line? How do we confront the issues of our modern culture?

*Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
