Body Piercing

So I’ve had Body Peircing Saved My Life on my currently reading panel for some time but I am just now really geting into it. A phone call from the library saying it’s due will really put some energy behind reading a book.

This is a book written by one of the Contributing editors of Spin Magazine, he’s not a christian, and he’s giving an outsiders view at the phenomenon of Christian Music. One of the things that I am realizing in this book is that people really do look at christians and think that we are weird or different. Partly because we have a desire and a tendency to seperate ourselves into subcultures that I don’t think was Jesus idea when he said go into all the world and make disciples baptizing them . . .

But I digress. I think this is going to be a very insightful book and I have really enjoyed it so far. The author talked about dcTalk and I reminisced about just how awesome Free At Last and Jesus Freak really were.

I just finished reading a chapter about Tooth & Nail which is a record label that is located in Seattle. it was very interesting. This is a great book so far and if anyone wants to get an outsiders perspective on the christian sub-culture this is a great resource.
