If you are a diligent seeker of truth and context from the word, dont bother.
My husband and I have been on the journey of what we recognise as a 'spiritual renovation' for several years now and it felt as though many of our personal conversations together had been overheard by Josh, as he talks about the same things we have wrestled with. He understands the guilt that is present even at the very prospect of re - thinking beliefs and theologies that one has accepted for (in our case over 40) many years and is able to pre-empt the inevitable responses to this fact. Josh is not provocative for provocative's sake. He shares his personal experience of wrestling with the issues at heart and gently encourages the reader to use reason with these long held beliefs and question them, which, in itself is a huge mind shift for these readers.
We have been on our journey now for some time, so much if what Josh says is reassuring confirmation for us and others who have been thinking this way for some time, however for those just embarking on this courageous trip, I imagine they may initially experience great difficulty with some of the concepts and may be helped and prepared for Josh's book by reading other material first, such as his suggested 'why I don't go to church anymore', 'The misunderstood God' 'He loves me' 'Love wins' , 'Pagan Christianity' just I name a few books that have helped us along our way.Read more ›
Joshua does not seek to impose a particular perspective but in sharing his life experiences through multinational ministry, he gives the reader room to consider the options and explore further themselves.
The book does not sow things up into a neat little belief package that you can tuck in your back pocket, it exposes the threads that are loosely holding pieces that don't match the main character, Jesus.
Joshua's open, honest, gentle and down to earth style makes it an easy read and well worth adding to your book list.
