About "Accidental Pharisees"
Zealous faith can have a dangerous, dark side. While recent calls for radical Christians have challenged many to be more passionate about their faith, the down side can be a budding arrogance and self-righteousness that 'accidentally' sneaks into our outlook. In Accidental Pharisees, bestselling author Larry Osborne diagnoses nine of the most common traps that can ensnare Christians on the road to a deeper life of faith. Rejecting attempts to turn the call to follow Christ into a new form of legalism, he shows readers how to avoid the temptations of pride, exclusivity, legalism, and hypocrisy, Larry reminds us that attempts to fan the flames of full-on discipleship and call people to Christlikeness should be rooted in love and humility. Christians stirred by calls to radical discipleship, but unsure how to respond, will be challenged and encouraged to develop a truly Christlike zeal for God.

Okay let me be honest here. Out of all the books that I've read this year this one spoke the loudest. Not only that it's probably the only book of its kind out there, it really spoke to me on so many (personal) levels. Being an avid reader, it's so easy for me to be an accidental Pharisee and be a jerk (yes Christians can be jerks too). This book really gives you that balance of having a genuine faith and not being a Christian jerk.
