Title: No More Dragons
Author: Jim Burgen
Helps us get free from broken dreams, lost hope, bad religion, and other monsters.
Becoming a dragon is a dangerously subtle process. It never happens all at once. You make a long chain of bad choices. The chain gradually wraps around you. You aren't who you used to be and you aren't who you want to be. More importantly, you 're not who you were created and designed to be. Instead, your're a dragon.
Jim Burgen was raised believing in Jesus, but by the time he was a college student he was very disappointed and disillusioned by "church." As Pastor Jim narrates the remarkable process of Jesus reaching into his life and reclaiming him from himself, he implores modern church folks to shake off the trivial, sometimes weirdness, of religious churchiness in favor of the more important questions that make spiritual transformation and "undragoning" even possible to those who are looking for truth and grace.
No more dragons is about discernment and making better decisions. It is about asking Christ to deliver you from your own scales.
Jim Burgen has been the lead pastor of Flatirons Community Church in Boulder County, Colorado since 2006. He also serves on the board of SOZO international, an NGO focusing on holistic community empowerment in Afghanistan.
I found this book to be very enlightening. I think it would be very helpful for young people. 5 stars
