    I’ve started reading one of Francis Chan’s latest books, Erasing Hell. The Kindle edition is free right now, so grab it while it’s available.

    While reading it through Kindle, I discovered a neat feature. The app underlined passages that were popularly highlighted. For instance, 506 (now 507) people have highlighted this part of the book:

    Don’t believe something just because you want to, and don’t embrace an idea just because you’ve always believed it. Believe what is biblical. Test all your assumptions against the precious words God gave us in the Bible.

    And 450 people highlighted the following:

    I don’t believe God wants our church life to be centered on buildings and services. Instead, God wants our churches–whatever specific forms our gatherings take–to be focused on active discipleship, mission, and the pursuit of unity.

    Perhaps I’ll snag a Kindle edition of the Bible and find out what verses jump out at its readers. But then that eliminates the fun of finding little gems for yourself.

    Hmmm…
