I was flicking through the Word Bookstore catalogue and I came to a page devoted to Hillsong stuff. There were two books which interested me, one depressing and one encouraging.
Bobby Houston has written a book called ‘I’ll have what she’s having’. The description makes it sound like as a minister’s wife you need to ensure you lead a life that everyone else wants. This sounds like a great way to encourage people to put up false facades of success.
Brian Houston has written a book called ‘The Justice Generation’. This really surprises me. Apparently last year’s Hillsong conference had a justice theme. This is great – it sounds like kingdom thinking is getting past the theology of success. Good on you Hillsong.
