We've all seen the following scenario before. The TV preacher leans into the microphone and with both eyes on the camera tells the viewer that unless he's wealthy and healthy than he can't be a blessing to others nor can he serve the God they worship.
Matthew B. Redmond's latest offering The God of the Mundane dispels this idea and in its remarkable brevity and honesty informs the reader that their everyday lives and interactions are exactly what the God they serve is looking for.
With each well written brief essay Mr. Redmond easily walks the reader through the daily occurrences of life and how the simplest thing as a smile can be exactly what someone else needs to make their day brighter. Redmond explains that it isn't who you are that's important but what you do in the place that you are that can, and usually does, make all the difference in the world, and what Christianity is really all about, a far cry from what we usually hear these days from the lips of the faces of Christianity today.
To say I enjoyed reading The God of the Mundane would be an understatement. In fact I enjoyed this book so much that I invited Mr. Redmond to discuss this book on my nationally syndicated sports show. You can listen to the interview here, Mr. Redmond's website is here and you can purchase The God of the Mundane here. You won't be sorry you did!
