Free Church Press is excited to announce a new title by William F. Harrell: Bullseye: Perceptive Reflections on a Collapsing Culture. Dr. Harrell is Pastor Emeritus of the historic Abilene Baptist Church, Martinez, Georgia. Bullseye is Harrell's second book.
In Bullseye, Dr. Harrell aims his bead for cultural issues facing the church today. Those who purchased Harrell's first volume--Straight Shooting: Pastoral Reflections for Today's Church--will note in Bullseye the very same folksy literary style Dr. Harrell commands. Below are a few of the targets onto which the author carefully lays his aim:
- "Cloning is Here"
- "Islam and Government"
- "Confused, Convoluted Christianity"
- "The Sinister Nature of Small Sins"
- "The Translation Craze"
- "We are Right and You Must Agree"
- "The Integrity of Christianity"
In addition, there's also a section entitled "Quick Quotes and Pithy Sayings" which contains dozens of one-liners for which Dr. Harrell has become known in his years of biblical preaching. Here is a small sampling:
- When God says “Thou shalt not” He is on your side trying to save you a lot of trouble.
- I have never had anyone say, “Alcohol has really been a wonderful blessing in my life.”
- We are the last generation to realize that the world has gone crazy. The present generation thinks things are normal!
Dr. Harrell's distinctive writing style pulls the reader in so the book is hard to put down. He effectively uses wit, clear thinking, and his wealth of biblical knowledge to shed light on both culture and church. No one could hardly express it better than O.S. Hawkins who penned the Foreword:
This volume you hold in your hands is appropriately entitled Bullseye: Perceptive Reflections on a Collapsing Culture because it comes from one who has spent a lifetime hitting the bullseye. Bill pulls no punches here and deals head on with so many issues of life and faith that are easily avoided by too many others... He writes these words not as pretty platitudes; he has beaten out these principles on the anvil of personal experience across the years.
