Pharisee by Accident
The first thing of notice from Larry Osborne’s book (that applies to everyone) are the numerous endorsements. There are thirty-six to be exact! The most interesting endorsement comes from the author’s mother; “Larry’s Mom”.
“This is truly an amazing book. Such wisdom is hard to find. If you don’t like it, something is seriously wrong with you. You need to get right with God.” – Larry’s Mom
I find that to be a counteractive to the title of the book. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! Sticking your foot in your mouth! Taking 2 steps forward but 3 steps back…
If you can get past that one endorsement, you, as a reader are in for a challenge of the heart. Osborne writes about what isn’t new, but what is often prevalent in the life of a believer. It is mainly pride, that Osborne implies about. It sneaks into the life of a believer and causes the believer to become an enforcer of law rather than a dispenser of grace.
Every believer knows how this can creep into one’s life and seep out in behaviors and motives.
I would recommend this book for the purpose of perspective in one’s life and to help motivate personal evaluation and repentance.
