Book Review: The Unsaved Christian by Dean Inserra
The Unsaved Christian by Dean Inserra is book that the Christian world as a whole desperately needs today. Much has been happening in evangelicalism over the last few decades, movements like the Seeker Sensitive Movement and the New Calvinism movement come to mind. Somewhere in the shuffle of all these movements, certain beliefs or even lack of beliefs have latched onto evangelicalism. Inserra writes with conviction and clarity toward these beliefs, answering questions that many in the church are also asking, “What does it really mean to be a Christian in 2019?” and “Can I lose that salvation?”
On the outset, The Unsaved Christian is a simple book that shows the stark contrast between what it means to be a cultural Christian and a Gospel believing Christian. Yet, this book isn’t just a diatribe against Christians who mix their politics with their beliefs in the Bible Belt, that’s definitely in here, but it’s more about the basics of the Christian faith. It’s about having a faith that is applicable to one’s life, rather than applications devoid of genuine faith. The Unsaved Christian is well worth any Christian’s time, especially those who struggle with political Facebook posts.
