GRACENOMICS: THIS MAY DISAPPOINT YOU
Posted by Mike Foster:
First off, thanks to all those who have been posting their reviews on Amazon. YOU ROCK!
I probably shouldn't say this. I think this next statement will have a cost. But I'm about full disclosure here.
So let's start with the hard stuff....you ready?....Here it is...I DON'T WRITE CHRISTIAN BOOKS.
You see for the past 10 years my passion and calling has been a little different then most. I've always focused on the fringe, not the fold. Nothing wrong with either focus, I just made that choice.
GRACENOMICS is not just for Christians. Or for Atheists or Muslims for that matter. I create stuff for people regardless of where they are on their faith journey.
My focus is on starting a dialogue. And I just know religion, politics and Justin Bieber can slam doors really quick with people.
So I hope that doesn't disappoint you. But I just wanted to be honest about where I'm coming from.
But before you walk away disillusioned with me and wondering if I still love God, let me say this.
As I wrote it, a big prayer of mine was that Jesus followers would read it...and then do what it says.
And lets be honest...when the majority of our culture sees us as judgmental, anti-homosexual, bigoted, sheltered and hypocritical, WE NEED AN INFUSION OF GRACENOMICS!
SO WHO DID I WRITE THIS BOOK FOR?
All kinds of people with all kinds of backgrounds.
Business people. Leaders. Small Groups. Divorcees. Addicts. Moms and Dads. Fast Paced Entrepreneurs. People who are frightened. The failed. The super successful. The hypocrites and grace killers.
I wrote it in an accessible way where you could easily give it to your friends and co-workers. And then talk with them about grace.
GRACENOMICS is for social justice advocates who realize something has gone horribly wrong in how we treat each other...and now they want to do something about it.
I wrote it so groups and staffs could talk about hard things and create a grace culture. Perhaps then they could be more honest, forgiving and transparent with each other.
I wrote it for you. I wrote it for me. I wrote it so that we could actually live out being People of the Second Chance. That's the point.
OK, so GRACENOMICS isn't a Christian book. But I will admit, I did steal a lot of that carpenter from Nazareth's ideas.
Can we still be friends?
