A couple months ago Kary Oberbrunner contacted me and asked if I would be willing to be a part of his blog tour for his soon to be released book, The Fine Line. Only knowing Kary from a distance I couldn’t think of a good reason to say “no” and since one of my motto’s is “lead with a yes”, I told him “yes”. But I’m really glad I did!
The Fine Line looks to be a very thoughtful, well-written and important book for our time. Kary reminds us, “Every generation must answer the most basic ethical question of the Christian faith, ‘What does it mean to be in the world, but not of it?’” This is The Fine Line. Kary explains, “...Our difference from the world, not our similarity to it sets us apart. But even though Christ followers are called to be different, we’re also called to transform the world. Here lies the tension. We can’t be so far removed from the world that we lose contact, and we can’t be so much like the world that we’re no different from it...”
If you want to get more info on Kary and his soon to be released book, there is lots of great stuff out there that deserves a look:
- The Fine Line sample chapter

I'm looking forward to the release of The Fine Line and the impact that is is going to make for this generation.
