This is definitely not what I expected it would be. It has an interesting overview of the life of Leslie Newbigin, who I hadn't heard of before reading this book. It also gives some unique insights on how the American church can learn from the perspectives of missionaries and non American Christians. I appreciate what there is to learn, though I do think the book was a little redundant in places.

Hope for American Evangelicals: A Missionary Perspective on Restoring Our Broken House by Matthew Bennett is a timely message. Inspired by missionary Leslie Newbigin, this book examines the modern church through the eyes and wisdom of a missionary. It’s a unique perspective to see the modern church from this view. 

Bennett writes with clarity that is easy to understand. He effectively uses the metaphor of a home to elaborate the message. I found the book intriguing and helpful to the modern challenges happening inside churches today. The author has a good understanding of church weakness and how to address these issues based on the Leslie Newbigin method. 

I found the book relevant and interesting. It would be useful for a college textbook, missionary course, or church administration course.

Not what I was expecting.
Thanks to author, publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book. While I got the book for free, it had no bearing on the rating I gave it.
