Excellent book for those who write. The Gospel is tragedy. It is also comedy, of the grandest sort. And it is the one true fairy tale upon which all other fairy tales are patterned. The author's writing style is entertaining, his allusions enlightening, and his applications enchanting. A good read for the pastor who doesn't want to take the mystery and and majesty out of the Gospel.

I give it a two thumbs up.
