I read this once before--maybe 15 years ago. And I've read several other books by him. Very much a free spirit--not much like me. But I get inspiration from some of his thoughts. He is a theological advocate of extreme and pervasive forgiveness for everything and always. He has a very funny discussion of the parable of the prodigal son from the viewpoint of someone thinking in terms of tough-love, and how deeply unChristian that is. The title "A Second Day" could refer to one's feeling upon remarriage--as in "a second chance". But it also refers to a second day in the tomb--in that resurrection occurs on the third day. He is very much an advocate of dying to yourself and your self--as the path to new life. Worth reading for the divorced, those affected by divorce, and those who counsel the divorced.
