First half is great; second half is pretty poor
on 28 May 2013
First things first, this book is LONG. This becomes a problem because the second half is not very good. I really enjoyed my time reading the first half because McLaren comes up with some really refreshing ideas. However, when he comes to comment on how these ideas should change the way we act he seems to just fall into the trap that he is trying to avoid; namely that his faith becomes weakened. The ideas simply dry up.
A good book to provoke thought, but about 50% too long.
