Book Title and Author: Accidental Pharisees by Larry Osborne
Genre: Christian Nonfiction
Reviewed By: Heather Hart
Star Rating Given: 5-stars
Accidental Pharisees… We’re all guilty of it in one way or another at one time or another. I know I am, anyways. But what are accidental pharisees (other than the topic of a book by Larry Osborne)?
We accidentally become a pharisee when we judge other people because they aren’t at the same point in life as we are. It’s that simple. We all grow at different rates, and God works in us in His time not ours, but where does that leave those who are a step down from us on the ladder of holiness?
That’s what really drove home for me in this book.
Mr. Osborne did is an amazing writer, and I almost read this entire book in one sitting – I just had to stop because it was so convicting! It couldn’t have came at a better time either. God most certainly used this book in my life, and I think it will do great things for Christ.
Accidental Pharisees by Larry Osborne is a book that every Christian needs to read!
Here’s what the author had to say about it:
Book Description from Amazon:
Zealous faith can have a dangerous, dark side. While recent calls for radical Christians have challenged many to be more passionate about their faith, the down side can be a budding arrogance and self-righteousness that “accidentally” sneaks into our outlook.
In Accidental Pharisees, bestselling author Larry Osborne diagnoses nine of the most common traps that can ensnare Christians on the road to a deeper life of faith. Rejecting attempts to turn the call to follow Christ into a new form of legalism, he shows readers how to avoid the temptations of pride, exclusivity, legalism, and hypocrisy, Larry reminds us that attempts to fan the flames of full-on discipleship and call people to Christlikeness should be rooted in love and humility. Christians stirred by calls to radical discipleship, but unsure how to respond, will be challenged and encouraged to develop a truly Christlike zeal for God.
