A great contribution to the subject
on 7 February 2014
I always find myself liking what Greg Boyd writes, even when I disagree with some of his points. In this volume I find myself very drawn by his prime message that our gospel is based on Christ alone, that it is relational and not something that we learned. The types of faith he criticises is not in anyway denominational, and he isn't banging a drum, rather he is leading us back to a true biblical understanding of what it means to believe, and that it is the faithfulness of God rather than ramped up faith in God that is the key.
Confidence will not sustain us, but relationship will.
I didn't quite grok some of the personal stuff he mentions, but some of the anecdotes were very helpful.
Well done Mr Boyd for this excellent contribution to the literature. If he is speaking near you I recommend a trip to hear him.
