it was amazing

This book strongly advocates foolishness - that is, foolishness in the eyes of the world. Brennan Manning suggests that instead of following our instinctive desire for security, pleasure and power we choose to let the reality of Jesus and his sacrifice fill our lives. As he points out, too many Christians are half-hearted about living a Christ like lifestyle. Jesus' commands in the gospels set out an incredibly radical way of life.

This is a thought-provoking and very important book. (Also, I like the pun in the title; somehow the irony of the original and of this book are beautifully parallel).
