Who Are You to Judge? by Erwin W. Lutzer

Who Are You to Judge?: Learning to Distinguish Between Truths, Half-Truths, and Lies

Who Are You to Judge?: Learning to Distinguish Between Truths, Half-Truths, and Lies

  This is an incredibly relevant and necessary book in our day and age! Judging is a very touchy subject with people either going overboard or the opposite extreme- discarding all godly judgment. People (Christians and unbelievers alike) are even loathe to be discerning, resulting in a really, really messed-up world. There is stability and peace in personal convictions and rules made according to God's word- not to mention glorifying God Himself! 
The amazing thing about this book is the balance: the author, Mr. Erwin Lutzer takes this difficult subject and investigates it with clarity, wisdom and Biblical soundness. I highly recommend this surprisingly easy-to-comprehend book and assure you that you will not be offended or confused by it. I have read (and reviewed) many books dealing with issues of today and such problems and I found all too many of those Christian books to be confusing, weak or unfounded on Biblical truth. This book I trust and understood very well. Before reading this paperback you might wonder if it's right to judge or if you should just accept everything that is going on around you...well, this book will gently open your eyes to what God says in His Word! Also, this book by Erwin Lutzer is good in that it doesn't put down denominations- rather, the author explains everything quite factually without pointing fingers. Of course, he also writes with strength and an upholding of God's truths. So read this book with a humble heart and be prepared to view the world around you differently, through a lens more like our Maker's! 
More about the book: 
We live in a world that tolerates everything but judgment. What we don’t realize is that right judgment is the key to right living.Who Are You To Judge? is Lutzer’s word to a culture that hates being told how to live and to a church called to purity.
After explaining the difference between judging and being judgmental, Lutzer guides Christians in discerning various critical issues, including miracles, matters of doctrine, and godly engagement with entertainment and culture.
With a passion for biblical truth and intolerance for lies, Lutzer is compelling and gut-honest. Who Are You to Judge? calls us to not only embrace the truth, but also to live according to it, speaking the truth in love to a world so desperately in need of both.
