    For example, for persons our society constructs as Radical Christian Communities book when wearing the sacred head coverings of Muslims, Sikhs, or orthodox Jews, or the hair styles of Rastafarians, the public imagination converts these individuals and groups to the category of "racialized other," and thus profiles them as such. Note that this goes beyond the also-important service of meeting immediate needs and supporting hurting or marginalized people. This book makes that a very easy trap to fall into. Yet David only addresses the story pertaining to money, as if that tells us all we need to know about God, and about ourselves. But he doesn't address any of these, choosing instead to laser-focus on the Rich Young Ruler and the Great Commission, and ignoring virtually the remainder of the Bible. And some of them believe in violently forcing all Muslims out of Israel.

    In other cases, the idol can be family ties instead of money. First, the American Dream is not about materialism. Upbeat, conversational, very interesting for those who appreciate such an honest, passionate voice. The book is designed as a manual for and self-examination by and for community members. This individual is portrayed as representing the group of Christians as a whole.

    And current leaders of such communities are featured. He presents the Rich Young Ruler as a cautionary tale against wealth, and maintains that we need to purge our "excess" in order to follow Christ. It is neutral — like many things in life, it depends on what you do with it. Be careful with this book.
