Unashamed to Bear His Name: Embracing the Stigma of Being a Christian By R.T. Kendall Book Review

In Unashamed to Bear His Name, R.T. Kendall explored the stigmas that come with serving Christ. R.T. Kendall was humiliated and picked on in his childhood because he attended church. He remembered the pain that he had to endure. When he got older, he encountered the people who peer pressured him and he saw how their lives turned out. He now gladly accepts the stigmas that come with following Christ. The book contains Bible stories from Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Leah and Rachel, David, and many more people in the Old Testament. They had to deal with the persecution of being rejected and made fun of for what they believed in. This book will lead you to not be ashamed of the Gospel and being a Christian.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is afraid of standing up for what they believe in. If you’re ashamed to tolerate the stigmas of following Jesus then this book will assist you into overcoming them. I realized the world will not always get the reason we believe in God and his word. Some people just don’t understand what they haven’t witnessed. Being a Christian might cause some to reject what God has appointed and approved but it’s worth the risk and price.  R.T. Kendall did a great job covering all the types of stigmas that Christians will have to experience in their lifetimes. Even though the road will not be easy we have to be unashamed of being a Christ follower.
