Getting Over Yourself
In his book Marketing the Church, written back in the late eighties, George Barna argued that “the number one principle of Christian communication is that the audience, not the message, is sovereign.” So what has been the result of this philosophy as it has been implemented over the past few decades?

In short, what are the effects of an increasingly-narcissistic culture on contemporary Christian faith and practice? On this episode, Shane Rosenthal continues his conversation with Dean Inserra, author of Getting Over Yourself: Trading Believe-in-Yourself Religion for Christ-Centered Christianity.
