I marked this book as "skimmed". I calls for much deeper reading than I was able to give this library volume so I need to buy a copy of this book and re-read it...then possibly re-re-read it. I must recommend this to Christians who wish to look deeper into what they actually believe.
I would hope here, going on that you would already be fairly well versed in the Bible and have a good understanding of what you believe and WHY you believe it. Go into the book with an open mind, study it, run down the verses. THINK.
Yes there are a few times when the book gets a bit dry, it's almost inevitable in this kind of volume. There will most likely be times you'll disagree to one extent or another (in fact I hope you do at least at first. If the book convinces you to change your mind, of not at least you will think and have thought about what you believe.).
For non-Christians be aware this is a discussion and a somewhat in depth look at some basic Christian doctrines. For a basic look I'd suggest something different to start with (for example Mere Christianity).
For Christians this will I think stir your mental juices and be an uplifting study.
Well, I reviewed this a while ago...and Alice ate it. So here we go again. As I said before in the review you didn't get to read and that's now spreadWell, I reviewed this a while ago...and Alice ate it. So here we go again. As I said before in the review you didn't get to read and that's now spread among the random electrons of the internet, this book is far too good to have been read as I did, just to get it done and back to the library. I have a situation here where I'm involved in a couple of group reads and also a dozen (or more) library books showed up at once. This is one of them. It's not only a library book, but an interlibrary loan book, so a pain to renew. Thus...I rushed it.
Still this is (if you're at all into outdoor reads) an intensely interesting book. The stories in this both of the hunts and the stories exchanged in the book are great. Plan to sit down maybe with a cup of tea and enjoy this one.
