it was amazing
Read in September, 2006

I have read a good number of books that would fall in the "Christian Living" category, and a good majority of those that I've read were...nice. Few of them were truly inspiring. This is one of the few.

With a measure of eloquence and grace I've not often seen in any genre, Mr. Yaconelli indicts the reader for our "maturity" and pushes us to realize the meaning of "childlike faith." Somewhere in the rush to grow up we have forgotten what wonder is like and how to experience it, and further, we've forgotten that we've forgotten. Dangerous wonder encourages the reader to remember wonder and to seek after it again. To untie the tethers of maturity and adult expectations, and allow your imagination to run.

Wonder ought to be a necessary ingredient of true faith, and the author delicately but firmly reminds us of that in a very effective, very readable, relatively short work. A total breath of fresh air.
