The Divine Commodity by Leadership Journal editor Skye Jethani (Zondervan: 2009) is a green vegetable book, not a dessert book. It doesn’t taste good, but it is good for you. You won’t be happy that you read it, but you’ll be better off. Skye Jethani will challenge your comfortable way of doing church. He will push you to consider your faith more than your religious out workings. He destroyed any chance I had of enjoying Christmas like in the feel-good way it has always been. Jethani does all this using a wonderful comparison of the church and van Gogh paintings. It’s a creative, well-written book, and as such a easy book to read. It’s not an easy book to consume.
