Book Review: Unashamed to Bear His Name by R.T. Kendall


      In this day in age, to be marked a Christian is to be marked a lunatic: the world views us as creature wrecked with insanity for believing in a Being far greater than ourselves.  In this apologetic book, R.T. Kendall teaches how we as Christians must unabashedly share the love of God, despite persecution from around the world.  He tells us not to give in to peer pressure, and shows us that in the end, remaining true to Christ, and honoring Him, will eventually be the best choice. Even though it seems hard now, in the long run, Going for Christ is better.
I ♥
·         His passion for Christ. R.T. Kendall is passionate about sharing the gospel,  and it really comes through in his writing.
·         The Cover. While simple, it displays the theme of the book perfectly.
·         The overall simplicity. I liked how this book was easy to understand, yet still knowledgeable.
I didn’t ♥
·         Its somewhat tedious sections. While it was a great premise, some portions of this book were REALLY hard to get through.
Overall: I think this book would be fantastic for anyone somewhat embarrassed or ashamed of his or her faith. If you can push through the more difficult parts, the book as a whole is fantastic.
This book was given to me by Bethany House Publishers for this review.
