Can American Christianity really reconcile itself to the hard sayings of Jesus and the teaching of Scripture, or have we invented a version suitable for mass consumption that agrees with our Western ideas of fairness, our so-called rights, and the all-important American dream? In order to make God approachable, have we left out the parts of the New Testament we don't like? Is there a cost to being a disciple of Jesus? How do we reconcile the teachings of the Jesus we find in Scripture with the American Jesus we have created? In Hard Sayings: Reconciling the Cost of Discipleship and the American Dream, pastor and international speaker Joshua West compares the parables, teachings, and person of Jesus Christ found in Scripture against the pop culture Jesus we have invented in the West. Looking at the entertainment-driven, celebrity culture of the American church, West challenges the reader to reconcile what the Bible calls the cost of discipleship with the American dream.

Joshua West

Joshua is a father of two children, who inspired him to take his love of them, his love of nature, and his love of writing and painting and put them to paper. His first painting professor in college taught him to see more than just the subject, but to also see the world around it. This is a valuable lesson in life and nature as well. See the world around you, learn from it, don't take it for granted. Joshua is also an accomplished musician - he has written and recorded three full-length albums. His new album, "Uncertain Times" is available at www.joshuawestmusic.com Joshua is lucky enough to l
