My Almost for His Highest [Reseña]



Es un libro con un mensaje contundente, quebrantador y que trae esperanza. 

El autor de este libro es el  Dr. John Barber, pastor de la Iglesia Cornerstone Presbyterian en Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Se ha desempeñado como profesor adjunto de humanidades en Belhaven College, Palm Beach Atlantic University, y ahora como profesor adjunto de Bellas Artes de Bryan College, Dayton, Tennessee. Es autor de numerosos artículos y libros sobre la historia cultural. El Dr. Barber es licenciado por la Universidad Atlántica de Florida, la Universidad de Yale, un Ph.D. en el pensamiento intelectual del Seminario Whitefield, y una segunda Ph.D. en la teología de la Universidad de Potchefstroom.

El libro está formado por doce capítulos, escritos con un estilo muy claro y preciso. La estructura de cada capitulo es amena, de tal modo que no te das cuenta cuando ya has leído más de tres capítulos.

Éste no es un libro con el cual te sientas cómodo sí amas las cosas como están, si eres de los que amas las tendencias mundanas y anti-bíblicas que muchos círculos evangélicos han adoptado, este libro definitivamente no es para ti.

Pero si deseas ser confrontado a salir de esa zona de confort pecaminoso, este es el libro que buscabas.

El Dr. John Barner, nos introduce a la condición del evangelicalismo actual, sus fallas, su decadencia y las soluciones. Este libro es una herramienta que puede ayudar a la edificación de la iglesia, como del creyente.

Comparto contigo algunas de las muchas frases que me llamaron la atención:

"Dios no espera que las iglesias hagan de las preferencia de los inconversos, un principio importante de la adoración bíblica".

"La Iglesia no debería intentar competir con la mentalidad consumista del mundo, con el fin de atraer a las personas a los servicios".

My Almost for His Highest, es de esos libros que se pueden denominar como joyas de la literatura. Puedes adquirirlo vía Amazon (Haciendo clic aquí)








Review in English:

It is a book with a strong message, demolisher and brings hope.

The author of this book is the Dr. John Barber is the pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. He has served as adjunct professor of humanities at Belhaven College, Palm Beach Atlantic University, and now as adjunct professor of Fine Arts at Bryan College, Dayton, Tennessee, through which he teaches Italian Renaissance and Baroque art history to American college students studying abroad in Italy. He is the author of numerous articles and books on cultural history. Through EPI, he helped to found Uzima Reformed College, Nairobi, Kenya, where he teaches theology several times a year. Dr. Barber holds degrees from Florida Atlantic University, Yale University, a Ph.D. in Intellectual Thought from Whitefield Seminary, and a second Ph.D. in theology from Potchefstroom University.

The book consists of twelve chapters, written in a very clear and precise style. The structure of each chapter is entertaining and convincing, so that you do not realize when you've already read more than three chapters.

This is not a book with which you feel comfortable if you love things as they are, if you are someone who you love the anti-biblical and worldly trends, that many evangelical circles have adopted , this book is definitely not for you.

But if you want to be confronted to leave that area sinful comfort, this is the book you want.

Dr. John Barnes, introduces us to the condition of the current evangelicalism, its faults, its decline and solutions. This book is a tool that can help build up the church, and the believer.

I share with you some of the many phrases that caught my attention:


"God does not expect churches to make unbeliever's preferences a major principle of biblical worship"

"The Church shouldn't try to compete with the world's consumer mentality in order to attract people to services"

My Almost for His Highest, it is one of those books that can be termed as jewelry literature. You can purchase via Amazon (click here
