Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday is my favorite weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: 

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
from: When The Crosses Are Gone: Restoring Sanity To A World Gone Mad
by Michael Youssef, Ph.D    pg.31

  Ravi Zacharias said, "So he argues that if life has no design, why should the building have any design?...Did he do the same with the foundation?"
  The man had no answer for that question.
  Ravi concluded, " You and I can fool with the infrastructure as much as we would like, but we dare not fool with the foundation because it will call our bluff in a hurry."
  Yet that is precisely what we have done in our culture. We have demolished the foundation of our society. Then we look around and wonder why everything is crumbling around our ears.
  We are living in the land of 'Whatever,' and you cannot build a stable life or a sturdy culture on a foundation of 'Whatever.' The postmodern view of reality leads to despair.

Sorry it is more than a couple sentences but you need them to get a feel of the book subject!

Be sure and leave a comment and a link!


  1. I disagree. We have indeed shifted the paradigm on which our society was built, and we are indeed living in the resulting chaos, but we are not without a base. It's not "whatever." It's "so long as you aren't hurting anyone." Although we are still ironing out what does and doesn't hurt, I think this is a healthy start.

  2. Yes I think you did have to use more than two sentences, sounds like an intersting read.

  3. Sounds like an interesting book.

  4. Sounds great! Really interesting :) Thank you for stopping by and happy reading!

  5. Wow, interesting teaser! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  6. Interesting teaser, and I dig your site -- so I joined it!

  7. This sounds like a very good read! Great choice of teaser sentences.

    I'm catching up from being away. Here's my TT: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/11/teaser-tuesdays_23.html

  8. Hi Peggy,

    Whilst I may not agree with much of the sentiment or many of the opinions expressed in this book, I do have to say that I am in complete agreement with the lines that you have chosen from the book. Very succinct and astute, a great passage worth reading, sharing and reflecting upon.
