A fresh look at the earliest Christian movement reveals what made the new faith so compelling...and what we need to change today to make it so again.

Once upon a time there was a version of the Christian faith that was practically irresistible. After all, what could be more so than the gospel that Jesus ushered in? Why, then, isn't it the same with Christianity today?

Author and pastor Andy Stanley is deeply concerned with the present-day church and its future. He believes that many of the solutions to our issues can be found by investigating our roots. In Irresistible, Andy chronicles what made the early Jesus Movement so compelling, resilient, and irresistible by answering these questions:

- What did first-century Christians know that we don't—about God's Word, about their lives, about love?
- What did they do that we're not doing?
- What makes Christianity so resistible in today's culture?
- What needs to change in order to repeat the growth our faith had at its beginning?

Many people who leave or disparage the faith cite reasons that have less to do with Jesus than with the conduct of his followers. It's time to hit pause and consider the faith modeled by our first-century brothers and sisters who had no official Bible, no status, and little chance of survival. It's time to embrace the version of faith that initiated—against all human odds—a chain of events resulting in the most significant and extensive cultural transformation the world has ever seen.

This is a version of Christianity we must remember and re-embrace if we want to be salt and light in an increasingly savorless and dark world.

It’s going to be a challenge for some to hear this. We’ve been ingrained in certain thoughts and ideas since we were in Sunday school. Andy has done a great job with his thoughts, Jesus thoughts, and Paul’s thoughts on this subject. I personally believe that the Hebrew Scriptures are a great shadow and type of Jesus when compared, but not in all cases. I do believe most of Andy’s giving talks on Sunday morning have there basis in OT Covenant. Over all I like the challenging concept of this book, because it goes directly against how many of us were raised to think. Way to make us think Andy.

Pastor Stanley explains a difficult theological point regarding the old testament (covenant) and the new testament in an easy to understand way. It was something I inherently had questions about that were make clear. He is also very entertaining as a narrator and I could not stop listening. It was so helpful. A fantastic read for anyone and especially helpful for Christians who have had there faith diminished because of misunderstandings of what the 'bible' requires of us.
