His latest book is Sex, Sushi, and Salvation: Thoughts on Intimacy, Community, and Eternity (Moody Press). In this book, Strauch describes the existence of an eschatological dualism, an infinite qualitative difference, between this world and the next. 15 While Strauch’s dialectical defense of Barth’s theology captivated Bonhoeffer’s attention, Bonhoeffer suspects that Barth’s treatment of the distance and free majesty of God endangered the emphasis on the earthly dilemmas of ma. 6 In Strauch’s book

I see you and I walking down halls together, I see you and I in the harsh blues and neon reds of passion and intimacy. You make me feel like an eternity, stretching out to fill my life and Earth's life like a blanket. I have yet to hear your voice echo, but your romance is something I glamorize; like media to death. I want your gore, I want your intestines, I want your heart. The author would like to thank you for your continued support.

Many people want something more out of life than just the right sneakers or an ipod. For them, feelings of intimacy, community and eternity are much more important. Here is one person's attempt to find such things in daily life.

The author was part of a mission trip to Russia to set up a summer camp for local orphans. While he was there, he was propositioned by a Russian prostitute. He declined her offer, and she ran away in tears. She later told him that he was the first person to ever say no to her. In high school, he, along with several others in his class, was inconsiderate to a female classmate who was unprepared for a test. Two hours later, she was dead in an auto accident.

A young man from a rich family went on a pilgrimage to Rome. Tired of a life of partying, he took a lifelong vow of poverty. The family was not pleased, but he stuck with it, despite many attempts to bring him back to "reality". The young man became St. Francis of Assisi. God's creation is always better than man's creation; one day, the author was flying a radio controlled airplane. It was attacked by a hawk, and eventually crashed.

Everyone bows down to, or worships, something, whether it's God, music, fashion or the human intellect. Cathedrals, whether plain or gaudy, all point to the past. They encourage visitors to see God in all His glory.

This book is recommended for anyone, religious or not-so-religious, who is looking for a relationship with God. It does a good job of showing how faith can be found in the mundane things of everyday life.

If you like the apostle Paul, you're gonna love Christian George. In his new book, Sex, Sushi, and Salvation, George gives us a refreshing glimpse of what it really means to follow Christ--grit, grime and all.

If you want a pretty book about Jesus, this ain't it.

Like Paul, George has lived the life of a pilgrim-missionary--sharing the gospel around the globe and seeing with his own eyes the stomping grounds of great heroes of the faith.

And like Paul, he's compassionate but never compromising. The first to admit his pitifully sinful heart, yet living out Paul's mantra, "For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."

God has even blessed him with a thorn in his flesh.

George's edgy-poetic imagery will make you shudder with horror one moment and shiver with delight the next. This book is a convicting punch between the eyeballs in a colorful and conversational tone. Get ready to pack your bags and move out of your comfort zone.

If you find your heart and stomach growling for the real Jesus, if you ache to authentically live out your faith, if you crave the courage to risk it all for the only thing that matters--you need this book.

A friend approached me the other day and recommended that I give Christian George's book a shot. "What is it called again?" I asked, blushing at the title. I'm not much of a reader, but was assured that this book would meet my cravings for a captivating story, complete with asian flare and down-to-earth experiences about world travel. Little did I know, Christian would talk about hunting vampires, resisting the urge to have sex with a Russian prostitute, and recount the time in Japan when he lost his sushi virginity. It reads like Donald Miller's "Blue Like Jazz," only on theological steroids!

Being a martial artist, I am always on the look out for things on a deep level. Striving to master and maintain the body, a Christian is no different from a practitioner of any other art. Christian also trained in aikido, and relates those principles to the Christian experience. His book takes you back to your center of your substance by explaining that you exist to glorify God in all things. The distractions of this world bring only temporary happiness and cannot satisfy the soul.

Christian strikes the pressure points of the soul by reminding us that time spent with God is really where we find fulfillment in life. I'm going to buy five copies and give them to my closest friends.

This book is a wonderful read...especially for those who are looking for freshness in their Christian walk. As a Pastor who is passionate about Martial arts, Jazz, and the profound observations of the great Jack Handey ("Deep Thoughts" from SNL in the 90s for those over 45 or under 25!), I definitely resonated with "Sex, Sushi & Salvation." Christian managed to sound profound, thoughtful, and constructively critical...without coming across as the whiney-emergent stereotype that characterizes many younger Christian memoir-esque books. My only critique (which I jokingly shared with him in an email after reading the book) is that quotations come mostly from "The Message" instead of an actual translation of Scripture. While it does flow with his overall style, it would've been much better if he had used his own personal translation of the texts (which he is surely capable of doing) or a current mainstream translation and then draw out the meaning by explaining it. Other than that, the book was fantastic.
