The author had a good message, but the delivery was based too heavily on metaphors, analogies and histrionics. I've read several Christian interpretations of the Gospel and they typically fall into two camps. On one side, the interpretation is real, direct and simple. Interpretations are clear, concise and make sense. On the other complex, verbose and self serving. Sometimes, "is" really just means "is."

Too many metaphors, analogies and infusions of the author's opinion about the Gospels meaning. That being said, Keller did a decent job of explaining God's perfect justice and why Jesus's death on the cross was necessary.
