I wanted to like this book way more than I actually did. Dull and repetitive at times, what we have here is a disjointed collection of personal stories and soapboxes – some of which I've previously read elsewhere – with occasional considerations of Perkins and his lived theology (the point of the book!) scattered throughout. As far as collections of talks-turned-essays go, I guess it's okay. Here's my take: don't bother to pick this one up; get your hands on Perkins's own work instead.
