Read in February, 2011

This is a book with a very important message for our time.. And it's about one of a very significant movement in modern Christianity. However, the writing is awful, and hyperbole abounds. Words like massive, huge, violent, extreme and tremendous are found in around two thirds of every sentence, and almost half the sentences in the book end with an exclamation mark. Now that's a shame, because when God does something there is no need for exaggeration! The communication is foggy as well, as some sentences are hard to understand or have dual meanings. It has a great message, poorly communicated.

Rating:
Message: 3-4/5
The way that message is shared: 1-2

50.0% "Plus sides: Great message, inspiring (and insane) examples. Down sides: Americanism; which means hyperbole (I know some of the examples, very distinct sentence builds and terminology (Pentecostal-ese?) and a few too many sentences that end like this!"

92.0% ""For so long, we have separated discipline and pleasure, thinking one is punishment and the other is freedom to do whatever we want. However we are moving to such a place that boundary lines are discovered to be pleasant. As we live in them, we find ourselves going off the tracks of the Christian roller coaster of ups and downs into a life of pleasure-filled discipline.""
